^^ interesting to see previous high profile iStockers such as Tyler Stalman leaving iStock employment, joining the Saatchi Online team and promptly dropping iStock exclusivity.

Stalman is still exclusive photographer on iStock, your information is wrong. See http://www.istockphoto.com/stalman


I think he was an Admin or inspector at one point.

I'm also amazed how many people here who regularly complain about iStock have no clue who Lobo is, what his name is etc. so much for understanding the agency you're contributing to.

Why would anyone want to "understand the agency"? If I made knitwear and sold it through a high street shop, should I involve myself with the shop's history and the company politics and personalities involved?

I assess iStock according to how it treats me in our business dealings and how it performs for me. I'm not terribly happy with the first half of that equation and I have some concerns about the trends in the second half. The history and personalities are of no importance to either.

It's neither. It's selling original fine art and prints. It's not advertising related, so even though Saatchi is a big name in advertising this website has nothing to do with stock.

The website is an offshoot of Charles Saatchi's art gallery. He is a very influential art collector who sets trends.

Let's be clear. The website has nothing to do with Saatchi & Saatchi - that advertising agency still carries their name but they departed from it many years ago. And according, to the press, they (the two brothers) are also no longer involved with the agency which they founded after leaving their original agency.

(It's like the Gates Foundation has nothing to do with Windows.)

Sigh!  its been said a thousand times.

Is about "the more I know the less I know", but in the end is about being a step ahead of the game.

... yet.

Have you been sworn to secrecy or is this just wishful thinking...I would imagine Getty made Bruce sign a no-compete that lasts for quite a long time.

Back on topic, I notice JJRD has said:
"Moderators are fair.
People going Downtown around here go beyond expressing themselves."


Well, ya know:
"So, maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares and go
Downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown, don't wait a minute more,
Downtown, everything's waiting for you"

I didn't get what he meant by this. It sounds dirty, ya know like going down-town on someone. I rarely understand the things JJRD says but this one really has me confused. Does anyone speak JJRDish and perhaps enlighten me?

Peebert was edgy, but funny. And he didn't belittle people's concerns like Lobo does.

Very true.


Do you even know if Lobo is a real person, or just a pseudonym for IS staff? Like Scout, I believe that is a group, not a person, although I have been told otherwise.

Chris McBurney is Lobo. Pete Rockwell is/was Peebert. Its a shame Pete got the boot from iStock.

Whoa, a cameo appearance of the man himself. Did we strike a nerve?  ;)
