Nobody know them?  LOL....I suspect this is a personal vendetta of some sort.  You do realize that Alfonso (CEO of AGE) is president of CEPIC?


I agree with Ron, if they are so well know, why don't they appear nowhere ? According to Wikipedia, the president of the Cepic is    Christina Vaughan not Alfredo...

All intelligent people know that Wikipedia is not the best source of reliable information.

Wikipedia is incorrect - it's a crowd sourced portal...crowd sourcing doesn't always get things right  ;)

Searching my name in google I found 178 photos of mine in this site, wonder through what agency they got there, because I have not submitted to Age directly. They don't answer my emails. Anybody has any idea what sites are partners with Age?
Thanks,
GB.

AGE is good agency. One of the last mom and pop run agencies out there. I wouldn't worry about their credibility. As for how your images got there. Likely a sub agent agreement with one of you other agencies.

I have a huge problem with Age and I'm posting in this dead thread to find out if I'm the only one or not.

Here's the story. I started contributed to AGE abt 5 years ago in 2011. And even though my collection was (and remains) rather small, I still had some sturdy sales. 2 sales a month is a good result for a collection of only 300+ images.
But after I applied for a withdrawal of my earnings in early 2015 I haven't had a single sales with AGE.
To me it looks rather weird to have 0 sales in almost 2 years. In fact I find it impossible statistically, unless the Stock is closed. But as far as I can see AgeFotostock is working more or less successfully.
This might be a technical issue, but nobody from Age ever answered my emails.

Did anyone here experienced such a drastic sales drop? Or maybe anyone can help me with the contacts on AgeFotosock to clear this issue?
Thanks!

What you explain sounds odd but sure has an explanation or a reason. I have been with age fotostock for more than 20 years (they have been in the business since 1973...) and never have had any problems. I have had good years and not so good ones too, but they are solid and do their work with a lot less fanfare than most of these newbies. There are different people there but Raquel is their Photographers Liaison, she is great, professional, and very knowledgeable in photography (more than most photographers actually), and knows the business really well. Write to her, newbielink:mailto:[email protected] [nonactive]. Good luck!!

Have had ok sales with Age.  The good point is that when you get a sale return is better than MicrostockGroup per sale.

Easy to upload so keep on uploading.

I am still on Age.  Every other month get some sales there.  One month over $100US so it is still worth uploading.

I've been with AGE since 2010.  They were my best sellers when I started out, making $200 per month with less than 1000 photos.  Then, sometime around 2014 it came to a grinding halt.  Now I have close to 3000 photos, but make 1 or 2 sales.  The money is better per sale (average $20 persale), but the sales are fewer.  If I make 2 sales per month, that is good.  Though in 2018, I sold a photo that appeared in a national auto ad and netted $1000!!!  Crazy, is that they could have bought the same photo on SS or IS or DT for much less.

I still contribute, as the upload process is a breeze, just copy and paste into their ftp.  Their acceptance practice is...odd.  When I started out, they accepted over 90% of my work.  Now, I'll be lucky is they take 33%.  And they don't give a reason for the rejection.  IDK if the quality is bad or if they are oversaturated in a subject.  I would like to know so that I don't upload similars, or re-examine my photo, as it may be a correctable mistake.

hi is this agency only for us contributors? they give you some contract to sign and send it but they ask the adress  you live in only  not the country like other agencies.and do you have to send them a set of 10 images for eg as a test like on ss to accept you?
are they difficult with acceptance?

Guess, crazy is how other agencies dropped the high earning operation to chase the countless asset libraries or the get as more as you can dl subscription schemes...
