I believe most full time microstockers are way too busy producing product to bother with selfie tutorials...

Or they don't have enough of a technical knowledge to edit to an excellent standard, as seen by Guilherme's final result.

I certainly don't, and stick with publishing blog posts. Seems like these types of YouTube tutorials have the potential to reach a much further audience and have a greater impact.

To what end?

You need to look out for more showreels to see what others are doing.
And again, I see some absolutely gorgeous lifestyle footage portfolios, but the contributors aren't blogging on Youtube.

Again, to what end, to gain an audience of wannabe stock footage creators? Or stock footage buyers? I don't see this as a way of bringing in stock footage buyers.
A good showreel yes, but that's not what I see here.

Lastly, I couldn't help but notice, and no offence to Gui that he has just over 300 clips on Shutterstock, in 5 years? That's not really enough.
I've produced treble that in just over a year, mostly model released lifestyle, but I don't consider myself yet an authority on stock footage.
And even if I was, I wouldn't be telling the world!

Dead threads or not its more then ever a topic today!....Stockmarketers post is one of the best and most true I have ever read in this or any other forums!...The industry has had its 10 years plus and is slowly dying as far as the "good" money is concerned! and its exactly the same in the original traditional agencies also struggling to make ends meet!

Its just a matter of either being happy with cents and dimes or just quitting micro-stock and not encouringing other people to join an already sinking ship. The downfall started long ago it really started with Istock years back messing around to the point where people was leaving then SS went public answering to shareholders who wanted their monies worth and that was a ginat nail in the coffin! even the old Fotolia was far better then the present Adobe!

As long as noobs and little smatphones happy go lucky rich over night star-spangled people are joining in droves the death of the industry is imminent!

Every new user is featured all the old threads. So to someone new, these will be the top of the list for discussions. The forum design is part of the problem.

Maybe there should be a warning for new users. Oh wait, there is! When you post to something that's over 120 days a RED warning message comes up.

Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days.
Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.


OK just pointing out how this happens. Yes, new users should be aware they are replying to old dead threads.
