FYI: I sought and obtained permission from Tyler months ago to post this notice.


I wanted to invite those of you interested in expanding your online sales efforts to consider joining our small crew at Aeronautic Pictures.

Who? Aeronautic Pictures is a thirty-year-old specialized photo and video production company. Aviation and aerials have long been the focus as well as stock media sales.

With that history, clearly this is no start-up. The only new element here is the invitation to outside shooters to join my long established self-hosted stock sales. This is possible because I've begun to migrate my old "store" to new technology capable of accommodating additional creators (a migration that is just started).

I'm not remotely famous but you'll see I've worked for major corporations, publications and productions (see home page of production site and IMDB for credits).

Back in the beginning my stock was sold both directly and through Tony Stone Images (TSI, remember them anyone?)

When TSI was purchased by Getty I left and continued to sell directly from my website.

The business is small and privately owned.

That's good news (for some of you) and bad news.

Let's take the bad news. The resources available for marketing and IT pale in comparison to the big guys. That's just a reality.

But I've never liked being a tiny fish in a giant ocean. That's why I did not go to Getty with TSI.

Which leads me to the good news, in my view at least.

If you become a part of our crew, you'll be a comparably sized fish, no matter your tear sheets and published credits.

In addition to my own work I'm looking to add a total of just 10 active contributors.

Even though the operation is small the site has always been competitive in my core niches of aerials and aviation (traffic and sales).

That will only improve with the addition of new quality content in these areas.

Enough back story.

Additional Features:
Non-exclusive
Sales split among best in industry on prices that respect creators
Affiliate program (coming soon)

Here are the priority subjects I'm looking to add:
Aerials
Aviation
Food
Medical
Military
Pets
Timelapse
Transportation (shipping, *, trains) <-- preview shows middle term for on-road cargo hauling 18 wheelers censored for some reason! Yes, I spelled it correctly.  :-[

Requirements:
Quality
Legal (owned & shot by you, model released and property released as needed)
Footage must be HD or higher resolution
Photos must be 3000 pixels (at 300 PPI) or greater resolution
Prolific (must be actively adding acceptable material)

If you are interested please visit:

https://aeronauticpictures.com/buy/sell-stock-footage/ [nofollow]

and follow the directions to submit your work on that page.

Many thanks for reading this far and your interest.

I hope you all have a prosperous 2019!

Photos must be 3000 pixels (at 300 PPI) or greater resolution

What does that mean in Megapixels or dimensions? 3000 pixels total would be a tiny dot. 3000 on a side, minimum would be 9MP if a square? PPI is pixels per inch, a measure of the resolution of display screens, scanners, and printers.

Truck-ing? (I see now what was removed, added the hyphen) Freight?  :)

Good luck with your small agency project.

Yes, truck-ing.  :-[

I left off "at the long dimension" with that res description. Sorry for the error. But thanks for the good wishes!

Makes better sense.

So you are saying 6MP roughly?
