Ah, yes. But those would have to be property released by the mfg.

Hi All,

 Here is a link to the quality we produced that year of 4,000 images. www.andersenross.com We also produced all 3500 of our Micro images in three months. I was not in any way trying to boast I was trying to say if you are told it can be done that might be all it takes to achieve it, the right motivation. Tom set the bar and we learned about how to produce and what people we needed to get the work completed, and also an all around different outlook on stock itself. I didn't change my style just ramped up my work load and I got help so I could focus on just shooting and writing shot lists. As Tom would say " If the shutter isn't being pushed you are not making money ".
 We shot 8-10 times a month and got an average of 40-50 selects from each shoot, with holidays and sick days that works out to roughly 4,000+ shots, not really that tough to pull off. I had two assistants a producer and a person doing all the back end except the editing. I could never have done it on my own.

Best,
Jonathan

Impressive body of work, Jonathan. A delight to view. More modern magaziney than traditional stocky! If you get what I mean. Excellent.

The question about exclusivity or independant, is always there and always cause a debate. I would say almost all of us would be exclusives if it wasnt for the fact that the Micro market is so unpredictable so unstable. An agency, no matter how big or small that is here today might very well be gone tomorrow or swallowed up by much bigger umbrellas.
The general feeling "out there" from buyers of images, is that the Micro and stock-photographer in general is popping Valium every five minutes because they dont know if theyre going to go on the dole on a Monday morning.
Personally I prefer a big Scotch but there you go.

best.

Wish there was a way to put the OLD THREAD ALERT on the first page instead of the last. Would of saved me some time.

That said, I wonder how Daniel LaFlor is doing these days.  Betting he is losing money like the rest of us that used to do real well back then.
