I'd like to make a quick pitch for my startup agency OverflightStock (www.overflightstock.com) which specializes in aerial photography and footage. The pricing model is along traditional lines both RF and RM.

For anyone interested post your questions here or PM.

Thanks,

Peter

I'm going to bump this one more time just to say that non exclusive content is now accepted.  http://www.overflightstock.com/contributors
Thanks

Hi Peter,

non-exclusive sounds interesting, I do have some aerial images (not too many).

Some questions:
- what's your pricing level for non-exclusive photos? Would that fit if they are available elsewhere for microstock prices?
- your submission guidelines talk about "16+ megapixels shot with good optics and a relatively low noise sensor". How strict are you about that? I have some older (from 2007) images shot with an Canon 30d (8 MP), would they qualify?

thanks,
Dirk

Dirk,

Thanks for the questions. I would like to say there is no such thing as an absolute. If the images are somewhat unique and taken on small sensor cameras I would take them. If they are of something that exists in large quantities or from a landscape that's changed since 2007 then they wouldn't be that useful. No I don't want images that are already offered at micro prices. I can make a business work selling footage at a minimum $79 per clip but I can't do it for stills at a few dollars per. I'll price non exclusive stills at $199 full size and perhaps create a higher or lower price category later as the collection fills out.

Pete

Hi Pete,

thanks for the quick response.
I'll keep your website in mind for future images then.

Good luck,

Dirk

What about footage, would you take non exclusive footage if it is also on SS?

There arent that many places to send video too and even for those that have files on getty with high list prices, the non exclusive artists gets 6 dollars or less.

I thought about this a lot and fully understand the problem. Yes to footage that is sold also on SS. At $79/$199 for footage, there is still an opportunity. Fingers crossed it doesn't creep too far downwards :) If someone said to me, "look, I have these great aerials and I sell them only on my site and P5 for $199/$299" or higher, then that's what I would list them at as well. There is a market for those too, assuming they are good, salable clips.

Congratulations, Peter, for finding your niche and being good at it. Not my area of expertise, though. Good luck!
