Since April SS have nosedived for me. Appallingly diabolical and every consecutive month gets worse. Uploading more work makes absolutely no difference.

You've been writing the same for 8 years now, how can anything keep getting worse for so long.

8 years?? youre kidding, really?  up to just 2 years back i was earning a small fortune at SS. You must be thinking of somebody else, maybe " shooterguy"  or " Gostwyck".


can you proof it?
why not posing your total earning in ss...i have the feeling you don't earn nothing like many ere who come to sell books and claim to earn thousand dollar with mediocre portfolio.

Well, we were all saying 10 or 12 years ago that it couldn't last forever. It's had a longer run than I expected so I really can't complain. if I want to make money I'll just have to use the skills and resources I've acquired over the years in another direction.

Thats right we did! we've had a great run really. With your port I would go for one of the trad agencies, the smaller boutique agencies. Not much left in micro I'm afraid. :)

if you had any clue bout rm and especially boutique agency, as you say, I'm taking about gallery stock and other top small agency, you know that that portfolio won't have any chance  to be admitted. in my opinion you are just a complete bluff.

I have to agree, unfortunately (since it's my portfolio). It was shot purely for microstock and is entirely devoid of the sophistication/processing a boutique agency would want. I wouldn't even bother trying to get it on Stocksy.

Forget stocksy!  go for Offset instead or Trevellian surely among all the travel/Qatar images you must have stuff not being processed for micro?  I mean my port all engineering, technology and oil-industrial is only for microstock but for Getty and the other two its completelty different or esle I couldnt sell it as RM/RF, a lot is also shot on Medium format HD5.......or maybe you could process them differently I mean you do have some stunning work from Qatar and there abouts!

Thanks.  Im really uninspired to upload my legacy people images because I waste all the time assigning multiple and different releases to all of them and then 75% get rejected even though all the releases have been accepted before.

I hear ya!
