Is this a partner site or something? Looks like a a bit of an IStock clone and ranks very high on google for stock photo searches

ETA, just spotted some of my work on there so I really want to know now! Can't find a link to the contributors portfolio from the image so I am not sure if it is there legitimately or not?

It's Jon who bought the domain for $250 000 and your images are there from Depositphotos i guess.

Thanks. The dp connection explains why it is only very old work of mine on there! Which jon do you mean?

He only bought the domain name not the photos.

Also great to see a stock site owner using quite so much of other people's IP on a blog post. But there you go

I worked with Jon when he first launched the site and for a while after.

But soon sales stopped completely and (other than a few HUGE contributors) he has stopped having direct uploads and is basically just a portal for images from Depositphotos now. so if you have images on DP, they will also be on stockphoto.

Hope that helps.
