Jeez!  not one single true to life medical shot, all posed and with terrible models,
Well, congratulations if you can get genuine medical staff to sign MRs.
For the rest, welcome to the wacky world of stock photos.

My wife's entire medical and support staff of about 40 signed releases for me (with the blessing of the major NYC hospital where she works), so it CAN be done.


thats great!  get some awesome stuff, I bet! :)

What do you say about today's hotshots? What do you think about Vetta files? All I can say for most of them is; wow! :o Really?!? ???

No comment about the quality of the files, but it did seem odd to be highlighting winter files in March.
Getting ready for the southern hemisphere winter?  ???

Although I'm not referring to these Vetta files in particular when I say that I totally agree with "wow! :o Really ?1?" when viewing Vetty (and Agency) files, but the few I got in there do sell at a good rate so they must be doing something right?

Hi!  yes, everything at IS nowdays seem to have an editorial feel and as Sue, above says, funny to promote winter pics in March?

Isn't winter just around the corner in Australia - * they don't have much snow there do they... Otherwise I guess the time between marketing and sale is very fast at iStock, and they are not completely wrong as we still have a few patches of snow left here, and many other places are still under full cover.

I have spent a winter in Australia, freezing cold, only 20 degrees plus! :)

I'd give just about anything to never ever see snow again and to experience freezing cold winters at 20C :) . Sounds like paradise to me

I love the winters, the harsher, the colder, the snowier the better - makes you appreciate and makes sure that one takes full advantage of the summer.

I can very much appreciate summer, every time it drops below 10C ;D . A friend of mine is thinking about moving to Brisbane, I checked the climate and it looks perfect. Two variations of summers, a cooler in July with average highs around 23C and then normal summer around January

Have you seen the latest? Man, IS shots were so outclassed by Getty's. A few grades better. IN this case you really do get what you pay for. Well not really in case of E+/A/V files, that cost almost the same as Getty's (AC perhaps matches their price?).

Wow, I must say I really like the Getty shots, so much more natural, also the lighting is natural and just awesome.

Really?  I thought they were what they were - most looked to be shot with natural light.  Kinda a mixed bag overall ( except mine, which was awesome ;) ).

Indeed most IS were shot with natural light (I checked it again). But they mostly don't work, except for the first one, which is a good shot. Getty's do, they really captured and used that natural lighting as best they could in all of them (the lighting in the 4th shot wasn't natural though, the only one, but the personal perspective is a nice touch)
