Obviously, certain details such as the brand of ymer and the number of cubic centimetres consumed are subject to commercial confidentiality and cannot be revealed at this time. There will be full disclosure when the YutiIndustries Inc. IPO documents are released.

It's nothing new actually.
Every specialist agency started with a successful photographer reaching the point where he felt ready to run his own small agency, recruiting young photographers, and signing distribution contracts with the big guys.

i wish all the best to Yuri !

He's been too busy making all those softboxes by hand.

(I imagine he's had his staff working on launch of his own website instead of processing and submitting new photos)

that reminds me. We need info about his lunch at the new site as well.
We need to know if it is "leverpostej" or "spegeplse".

Did anyone notice that under "top models" on Yuri's peopleimages.com Jesper is filed as "retired"? Poor Jesper...  ;D

its kind of crazy.

On the net Yuri is more famous than all the royalty we have. Princes and princesses of Denmark and all.
- and he pays for himself, that is a good thing.

now let "Se og hr" come after him and begin to really speculate.

I did wonder if that video was 'an interesting way to hand in his notice' in a manner of speaking.
Yuri apparently thought Jesper had no right to do it without his (Yuri's) permission.

Aww.  That was such a funny video.  Hope it didn't get him canned.

I guess his own site is more of a midstock, but with (mostly?) his micro pics.

But hasn't Liz suggested just that, that he made it to get canned...Like Elenathewise said today in the Yuri not uploading to IS, how much micro can you do... :)

ETA: ups, yeah it's this thread that Elena said it in. I lost track, I read so many threads today, that my head is spinning

I find the reasons why Yuri stopped uploading are more to do with the way his site operates than any altruistic reasons.

One of his exclusive licenses calls for an image exclusivity from fresh uploads.  If the image doesn't sell the exclusivity timed license it goes into the main collection.   Uploading to other sites would create chaos with the structure.

BTW I heard he had an English muffin and eggs for brunch today!

It will be interesting to see if he is successful with his site and strategy.
On one side I think a site with a Portfolio of 50.000 is too small to have a huge success (even if it is of the quality yuri produces). On the other side he proved his good business sense many times in the past. It will help to draw conclusions from that and I guess it is too a little bummer for the Agencies (a very welcome one ;-) ).

Anyway, I wish him good luck....

But then again a "little bummer for the agencies" could mean more cuts. We all know how unstable they are ;)

i really don't think he's betting the farm on making online sales from his web site.

all he's doing is setting up himself as a specialized agency and the next step will be knocking the doors of the big macro agencies for exclusive worldwide distribution, so Getty, Corbis, etc

his web site can pretty much be just a showcase portfolio.

maybe he also plans to send the eventual second-tier shots to micros but if he completely stopped uploading it sounds like a clear marketing u-turn to me and i'm sure he did the math on this.



moral of the story : the world's biggest microstocker actually LEFT microstock for greener pastures !
is this the start of a trend or just the exception proving the rule ? let's wait and see...

Breaking news: I heard Yuri wore his cornflower blue tie to work yesterday, instead of his red one. And he went to the toilet, too.

corn flower blue ???

I had to look it up

"Cornflower blue, a shade of azure, is a shade of light blue with relatively little green compared to blue. This color was one of the favorites of the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, the other being yellow."

Or they get more aware of the freedem of (non-exclusive) Contributors have and start realizing that their databases would be empty without them. Let`s hope for the best...

Painters do not work with yellow and blue.
They work with indian yellow and cobalt blue.
or maybe preussian blue if they are suicidal.

it is about white ballance, and shadows. Conflicts.

I always bought Cadmium Yellow and Phthalo Blue. I guess those are named more after the pigments and dyes though.

Right the pigments have a name.
Preussian is the same as your Phthalo Blue but indian yellow is different, it is warmer.
