Hi there, I'm a newbie....not only to MicrostockGroup but to Microstock in general.

As I mentioned in the subject I am a click-aholic, I just like taking pictures. I'm a blue collar type a guy and every day weather it be at work or play I am thinking how I would shoot what I'm looking at. I usually take a few shots every day with my P&S that I almost always have with me, if not my phone like I did today or my SLR.

Anyway I discovered Microstock a few months ago and have been researching and trying to get excepted at IS. I have been reading articles, watching Utube tutorials, podcasts, blogs and I signed up to twitter and follow a bunch of fotogs there. It can all get a bit overwhelming... :o  :D

I have lots of questions but I'm going to search around first before asking the same newbie questions over and over, I have found a few threads but if anyone knows of any good starter threads I would appreciate the links.

As a newbie you'll probably find this more helpful than reading threads on this forum:

You can use the same info for iStock too except for #7 if you doing raster illustrations.

Thanks for the info guys.

I have been rejected from IS 4 times now, I figured I would just try to get on there because my limited research at the time was telling me they were the best site to be on an exclusivity was the way to go.

I have since found that many very successful people are on lots sites. I'm thinking that I might want to try and get on at some of the other sites, have a little success and hone my skills and work my way up to IS. If exclusivity is not the way to go and I end up on other sites anyway, I mide as well start now.
