I see that for video exclusivity is required.
Does it mean exclusivity on a clip base or exclusivity for the full portfolio?

For photos and videos, it is for the series.  And also across mediums if you shot both.
example: Shoot a photo/video series with bob in jeans and a tank top at the fair.  All photos and videos from that series is exclusive.
Then take Bob to the beach and shoot there in a swimsuit.  You can put those somewhere else if you like.

I was on a wildlife photo tour for a couple of weeks. Each day, we shot one location in the morning and another in the afternoon, all in different places. Even within a single morning or afternoon session, we'd often travel quite a distance. What would be considered a "single series" in this case -- each morning and afternoon session? Each location? Both?

What if each of these sessions involved shooting multiple species of animals? If I submitted lion pictures from one session, would cheetah pictures taken during the same session (though not necessarily in exactly the same spot) be restricted as well -- even if they were not submitted or accepted?

Bob in jeans = lion.

Bob in swimsuit = cheetah.

Different series.

Well, I'd say "animals on safari" is one series, but you could ask the editors.  It's kind of hard to market "polar's safari images" as an exclusive series if you can go to Shutterstock and get something in the same style and location with just a different animal.

But what constitutes the "same location"? Over two weeks, we covered nearly 1000 kilometres of territory involving several different ecosystems. The locations in the images don't look alike.

And why would these different locations and animals be any different from "Bob in jeans at the fair" and "Bob in swimsuit at the beach"? This wouldn't even be Bob in both shots; it would be "Bob in jeans at the fair" and "Jim in a swimsuit at the beach."

I would find it disconcerting if thousands of images taken on such a trip were locked up like this.

Like I said, you'd have to have the actual images to check with the editors, and I'd imagine it depends on how "different" the various parts are.

If image/series exclusivity is required, does this mean images that have never been sold elsewhere, or can I use images that have previously been available as long as I remove them from other sites?

Stocksy said the last time, that you can sell them on Stocksy but you have to remove them from other sites.

Hello Sean
with a portfolio of 10k at shutterstock you can expect to earn about 3000$ per month. What about Stocksy's?
Thank you for your response

Wow, what a question. It would help if you included which kinds of images you shoot and perhaps an example :)

A further question: what is the situation with regard to property taken from a public position? Do you request a property release, as iStock and Fotolia do, or are you more lenient in this regard like Shutterstock? I have some images that include parts of buildings taken from a public street, and don't want to submit these if it's an instant rejection.

Thanks.

Sean please one question, when logged and ready to upload images, will image review team judge my contributor status looking at my portfolio on my website (link provided during registration), or will they look only and even give more focus to images I upload through a Stocksy website (ones that are ready for sale if accepted))?

Does anyone know how long it will be open? I would like to have a shot but I want to put some work into preparing some images.
From their facebook page : "There is no set deadline for applications at this time."

A colleague makes $10,000 a month on a big lifestyle portfolio.

Why wouldn't they take under water stuff?

You could earn anything from $93.32 a day to $8,368.23 a month. Or possibly more. Or less.

About two years ago they said no, that wasn't the style they were looking for so I assumed that is the same now.

Hey Sean

You've mentioned in the write up that you guys are looking for people from asia to contribute stuff. However in the country selection list the only names i could find were Hong Kong. No love for India, Malaysia and all others?
