I uploaded almost 300 hundred photos,most of them from Meteora Greece.Almost all of them rejected cause of intellectual property refusal when i know for sure that Meteora doesn`t have photography restrictions and don`t require property release. And i`m 1,000,000% sure about that.Not only that but all other stock agencies accepted them no problem.I even had a photo of rocks rejected,no monastery or building...ROCKS!

Not to mention that many other photos rejected for similar image,when there are only two photos the same but one is vertical and the other horizontal.Plus many rejected for aesthetic or commercial appeal of image.On other agencies again accepted with out a problem.

So, yes the person that QC`ed my photos on Sunday 20/01/18 23:00 local Greek time was clearly on a bad day...

Seriously did you have to refer to periods?

Men don't have them and it's a piggish thing to say women give you crap because of their period.

Could be your photos should have been editorial as the ones you have feature the church

Anyway seriously how many friikin photos of a rock in greece does any one need

300 thats just plain stoopid

What does a woman's period have to do with the rejection of your images?
I know it's meant as a joke, but it's not very funny and in today's society, where women still have to stand up for themselves to get paid the same as men, to be believed when they claim to be sexual assault victims, you decide to liken the 'irrational' rejection of your images to a woman on her period? Utterly misplaced.

I like an agency with a more discerning eye.

Obviously i apologise for the wrong term that i used and especially the women that had to read that (I'm merried by the way and i hate offending women) but I'm was seriously pissed off. So apologies again...
Now about the comment Sammy the Cat made: it wasn't 300 hundred photos of rocks. It was around 100. If anyone of you been in Meteora you would know how vast it is and how many different monasteries there are there. So there wasn't a single identical photo there. All different views and different angles. I tried to keep it to minimum.
There are accounts in Adobe and shutterstock that have hundreds of identical photos of a tree or a plate and forks, so in my eyes your argument that I'm stoopid is invalid.
About the model release  since you can't see a face in Adobe stock (it was my wife) you Don't need a model release and as i said Meteora doesn't require model release anywhere...
Maybe for you it's another rock in Greece but for me it isn't. No more than Grand Canyon that there are 2.000.000 the same photos.
But i mean, come on, property release from a rock?  ;D
Anyway you right as i said couple of times about my stupid mistake but you wrong about the fact that it was just another shot of a rock or that some rocks require property releases.
I stand my ground thinking that whoever QCed my photos had a bad day. And now i have to pay for that...

I agree, but we are not all as pro as you.
It's obvious how good you are from your white background. It has the perfect white balance...

Why are you apologising? If people are butt-hurt because of something that you said, it's their problem not yours.

From curtesy...
Just hope some times people were as sensitive to other more important things in life than just a joke. But then again they don't see the hordes of war refuges washing out from the sea in Aegean every day like i do. THAT is a sensitive issue...

Come on guys... Off topic.
I apologized 3 times with in a post. Let's talk about the issue here. My bad photography as it said before by someone or for the fact that I didn't ask for properly release from some rocks...

Does that extrapolate out to physical hurt as well as non-physical hurt/discomfort? So if somebody burns your house down or breaks your legs then it's your fault, not theirs... correct?

No need to be butt-hurt about what Sammy said, Dumc... but remember it's your problem, not Sammy's.

I've been to Meteora multiple times and undestand what you are talking about but the thing is are there really buyers and in that quantities that need photos of Meteora, let alone all the individual Monasteries there? I think you are wasting too much time uploading that much photos with no potential return. What I'd do if I was close to it I'd try to capture the vast location in one shot, in different seasons and different times of day to get unique shots, something passing tourists can't do and be done with Meteora.

P.s. I don't have problems with period jokes, my girlfriend enforces them.

Perhaps try uploading them to SS as commercial.

As a last resort, go down the editorial route.

Welcome to the forum and best of luck, file :)

Finally someone with a proper reply.
Thank you qunamax, appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately the place is too far away from me. I live in Kos in the winter and Corfu in the summer, so not easy for me to get there. Nevertheless I'll try to get there again.
Thanks again for your feedback.
P.s My wife hates it when i use the period joke. I use it when i want to annoy her.  ;D

Thanks a lot my friend. I've already uploaded them on shutterstock and they all got accepted. Not even as editorial.
On a side note i resubmitted them on Adobe and they past. So clearly whoever QCed them was on his /her period  ;D :D
We spoke many times before by the way, but I'm not that active unfortunately.
Thanks again

Hey there again and good news that SS has accepted it as commercial!

Just have to accept that some QC will take a conservative approach when dealing with borderline calls relating to legal issues such as images of Meteora. It can be frustrating. Lately, I'm questioning whether it's even worth submitting dozens of my Rio aerials to iStock as they're taking the stupid line that they need to protect graffiti "artists" to a whole new level, especially when their vandalism is only 5 pixels in size.  :o May just have to skip iStock altogether or submit it as editorial (which decreases its worth).

As for technical issues, SS in particular seems to be letting more images through with technical imperfections that would have been rejected only a year ago. That's probably a bad thing though as it means the market is inundated with mediocre images.

See you around!

It sure isn't easy, cheap or would payoff but you are in better position for Meteora than many when you are on Corfu, thou I guess the biggest drawback is ferry cost especially for a car, but very doable if you can find an excuse for a detour. :)
As for the editor he/she was probably just making excuses for so many photos of the same/similar location.

Joke's are funny, you were just being insulting compounded by an insincere apology when you needed help.  As soon as you got what you wanted you repeated the insult.  You are right though, I should chill and not let arseholes get my back up.

Mate listen... If you are a man or you may be a woman, i can't really tell by a name that refers to something else. That's my real name by the way.
I don't know you and clearly you don't know me. I have never called anyone an arsehole in here. My apology was sincere and if you can't accept it you can go and f***k your self.
I joked because the thread was getting out of hand, just to lighten up the whole thing. I didn't insult anyone and most definitely you wasn't one of the persons that helped. No one forces you to be in this thread. Let alone calling me an arsehole over a period joke. If that's to heavy for you then you can gtfo. Keyboard warrior. I bet you are one of the biggest racist.That is a reason to be insulted... Not a period joke that couple of you turned to a political agenta. Again come and see how many people I've helped in the island of Kos the last couple of years and then you can talk about arsholes. You wouldn't even dream to offer something anywhere close back to your fellow human beings.
