If that's true why wouldn't he follow that with all other micros? Maybe he has.  Any further shoots will be an exclusive collection of his own. ;)

Hardly surprising as he has opened his own site.
I'm just surprised he didn't pull his pics from other sites the day before he opened his own.
Maybe he wanted a transistion or buffer period while his own site built up traction.

He hasn't uploaded anything to shutterstock for more then 6 months... maybe even 8-9 months, as far as I could see.

Yes, cutting off his entire (massive) income stream would be crazy. That cash will be covering his costs while he works to make his own site a major earner to replace what he is losing from the others.

I'm surprised that he seems to have switched focus so completely.

Makes sense.  His existing micro portfolio will continue to pay the bills for years, I imagine, while he builds a following for his site.

In all fairness, Yuri's stopping uploading to the micro sites is a lot more relevant to those of us competing with him on those sites, than what he has for breakfast (unless he photographs that breakfast a couple dozen times and uploads it to somebody's niche ;) ). 

Personally, I would be delighted to have less of Yuri's content on the sites I upload to.  Ultimately it may translate into more visibility for the rest of us.

That would make sense to have everything revolve around his site and for it to be the definitive place to buy his work.

But, where have I heard that before? It sounds so familiar.  ;)

+2 And I doubt that it will hurt his revenues at all.

Granted, I am no Yuri, but as I have posted before, since I stopped submitting to IS my rate of revenue growth has actually increased. I think that you microstockers who are afraid to stop submitting to the Dark Side just because of potential revenue fall-off are wrong. I have absolutely no doubt that customers will find Yuri's images, or yours, on other sites.

Rumour has it that he had lunch today as well but obviously we are working to get that verified by a second source before it can be reported as 'news'. A spokesman for the 'Yuri' confirmed that he had eaten food recently but refused to confirm any further details. Pointedly, the spokeman refused to deny the partaking of food within the general region of the 'Yuri' in the last 24 hours. Hmmm.

Word on the street is that he hasn't crapped for five days.  Something heavy's going down soon.

another leak- Yuri's breakfast

"A variety of rich, buttery breakfast pastries made from a slightly sweetened yeast dough that is rolled out, dotted with butter"

Yuri probably saw all this selling out, IPO, trouble business coming way back and acted accordingly, like perhaps some of us here also should have done.

BTW, Danish breakfast is the same as Swedish. Porridge!  will set you up for yet another micro-day. :D

It was a light meal  of ymerdrys, topped with a mixture of grated rye bread and brown sugar.
He's a traditionalist at heart, is old Yuri.

I'm so glad the precise meal is being clarified. It's such a load off my mind...

Actually..It was not so precise. We are missing information about the brand of the ymer, it could be Arla, but we dont know for sure, and that makes me feel uneasy, as it is important to know the brand, because then we know the price and can such estimate how many photos he has to sell to pay for it.
Also on a yearly basis and agency specific, from agencies not uploaded to anymore.
