Hi! I'm looking for Microstock companies that hire freelance photographers for specific tasks they want/need. Do you know any with this method? Thanks in advance!

I find it easier :) you shoot knowing you'll earn money...

Not necessarily: they can put out wants list, usually expensive to set up, and you're competing against anyone else who wants to give it a shot.

I don't think any do Shutterstock/Istock have schemes where you can send work based on a "commission" with the possibility it might be bought. From what I've seen its spectacularly poor in terms of potential returns.

Not quite, they will get the shot but you can't be sure if it's your shot that is selected.

iStock calls it "Custom Content", I think all contributors can submit.

Shutterstock calls it Custom.

Thanks I'll look this up. I worked with Snapwire and it got to a point that they have a "pay to shoot" request so I have a brief I have to follow and I'm in charge of production and everything and they ask for a certain amount of pictures for x amount of money.

After more reading, I think Shutterstock Custom is different from iStock. In their "Contributor Success Guide", it sounds like a real commissioning.
