BUMP to keep this thread visible.

Hi all,

Anybody that have been contacted by Chad Bridwell and has an idea that he has misused data from Adobe/Fotolia, by getting emails, phone numbers, insight in profiles or anything else, please contact me.

You can email me at stefan@flamingoimages.com

People should really just run like hell if they get contacted by Onepixel.

They don't know what they are doing!

We have had 3 long phone calls with them, and still Chad Bridwell keeps sending mails, like he has no clue what's going on.

I would urge people to NOT join them. They are only trying to dump market prices, and thats one thing we should not support. When we stand united we have so much leverage its unbelievable.

Like when Deposit tried to dump prices, and at the same time didn't answer mails and calls. Over night a lot of the best photographers pulled down their portfolios, and Deposits market quality wise was cut in half.

Read more about the bad idea of joining here. Let's not actually help with dumping prices!

I have had a couple phone conversations with one of their recruting partners. She was trying to get us to contribute at the site.

First of all, I pointed out too her the very bad revenue. She claimed it was market standard.

We run a very successful stock business with huge numbers of sales, from which we can make detailed statistics that actually gives a broad view on the market.

Her statement is not true. We sell loads of expensive licenses at Shutterstock every day ranging from 20$ to 120$ REVENUE!!!

Beside that we sell lots and lots of files on Adobe on normal subscriptions with 0,99$

Again her statement is not true!

The worst thing though was that she was lying to us about the business structure. I asked straight up if Chad Bridwell had anything to do with Onepixel. I had information that stating he was. She said "no no no, I know Chad but he had nothing to do with Onepixel".

What happened next was that she sent us a draft of the licenses and terms, which included a link to a www somewhere in the plain text. There we could read that Chad Bridwell was part of the business.

Partners who straight up lie is something we all should avoid.

Beside that selling 1$ files will attract all the customers who do not want to pay the correct price for any given license im pretty convinced.

Let's all support the good guys in the business instead. There's plenty of them, where good quality lead to lots of sales.

Stocksy / Re: Call To Artists is Open!

First time I applied was 4 years ago! That time it was just a "Thanks but no thanks" - I can see why today! Our portfolio was not what Stocksy wanted - Even though it already had high value (Dollars).

This year we applied around jan/feb with what I thought was some REALLY good images.

This time we was given critique with the rejection! So we took the critique seriously, and applied again.

Rejected again, but now with only one critique point left.

Spend a couple months shooting with all the critique in mind!

And then we got accepted.

Oh and thanks AngelaWaye :)

Congrats! I'm so happy for you. So glad someone from the forum got through.

Wishing you lots of success in the next couple of busy months :)

Thanks you, means a lot :-)

I can remember that you also applied before! In hindsight I can only say this, to people want to get in.

- Take the advice/critique they give you seriously
- Accept the critique and improve ( Improvement is a LOT easier when critique is accepted)
- Be extremely picky when editing the selects for application

And thats really it I guess :)

Bigstock.com / Re: Many rejections because of Title?
« on: October 06, 2018, 08:58 »
I wrote Bigstock 10 months ago about the issue. Then again 6 months ago. Then again two months ago.

First two times they just said "please don't use the bulk editor - Our team is fixing the issue now"

Third time they never responded! Guess they don't cares we deleted our portfolio and stopped uploading to them! If all do the same, maybe they will get more serious and fix the issue. As for now, everything uploaded and batch edited you might as well just delete! No customers will be able to find them as both keywords and titels ducplicate the first file!

Bravo Bigstock!

We was also approached by them to join in. Told them we don't want to support dumping prices in any way.

Chad Bridwell who is part of the team was also part of the horrible Photo Dollar Club back in the days.
