This does not seem like all that much in 10 years.  I recall at one point Istock claimed it was paying $1.7 million a week (though Im sure those days are long gone).

Also apparently Turkey is the hot new market

SS didn't open up to outside photographers until Nov 2004 so it is really only 8.5 years. Almost half of the total was probably paid out since 2011. From the financial data they've published I think that they are currently paying out about $3M per month.

Good for them.....However, a number like that does make it painfully clear that I'm at the "peanuts" end of the earnings scale.

So average payout is less that 75$ a month.

The new investors are probably reading about this milestone and thinking "this has to stop.  We need to start diverting some of this money from photographers' pockets to MY pockets.".

If they do, we take our business elsewhere...never underestimate the power of online communities...much better to keep a good balance that allows everyone to win...

Good! I am Turkish and living in Istanbul. Hope I can do something good for Shutterstock and also for me.
Because I really love this company... I can sell sooo many images here... My personal thought: SS is the best of all...
