When all people are making hipster shots with "stocksy/offset/plainpicture style" this man is earning good money with stocky clich traditional stock images... Good for him!!

1600 images a day...in my opinion is pissing veryy long long way compared to reality...personally if this guy make so much with such portfolio, good but pretty simple concept, it means i have make it wrong since beginning.

Boy meets girl, then finds someone younger and/or better looking, is an universal concept

Better still would be the 'sassy girl knows that if the shallow b*stard has done the dirty once he'll do it again, so won't have anything to do with him' concept.

Yes, can do a soap opera worth of stock photos surrounding the theme of infidelity. And here I am spending $1000s to travel to Ecuador, Israel and all over Europe when I just need to get 3 models together (love triangle - either 2 guys and one girl or 2 girls and one guy)

I'm thinking the same really. but what surprises me is the quality , the concept of all this portfolio.
if we talk about uber images for example ,  i cannot disagree there is concept , superb model, spot on lighting, stylist, make up,.if he told me he sell 20000 day i could agree....

but this guy is really selling 1600 day!! with three model, practicallyzero lighting , most are overexposed because he cannot use flash or a reflector?, boring as hell theme?  60 pages of images that look all identical.unbielevable..
they look like something i saw in the first days of micro stock by yuri arcurs and company.
and this guy is selling 3 4 times the images of many great stock producer.

for all is portfolio, u need three days of shooting, 3 model, go to ikea, bye a desktop, a laptop, iPhone and head phone.
three shirt, three jeans, and you have produced a portfolio worth 3000 dollar who sold more than a million dollar in 4 year.
unbielevable.

Well he is in the top twenty so I have no reason to doubt his claims.
Clearly he is great at what he does which is commercial stock work. There really is only one way to judge that, it isn't by your or my opinions on his work, it is by his sales volume.

i am not doubting the sales volume...i'm surprised to see such portfolio having so big success, personally if  were a buyer i would buy anything from him considering there are uberimages and many other producing stuff that is simply much better.
if he sell al lot there is a big possibility to earn money shooting people in my opinion.

I think 1600 dl/day is mistake. Zaphire in fotolia is great but not enought for a roportional a 300/400 Dl per day in this web... fr this dwnloads you will be black diamond with platinums eggs.

I think he can sell this numbers per week, not per day.

he is selling in shutter stock and all agency 1600 a day...it means something like 1300 images per day in shutter stock, and 200 in fotolia probably...for me is unbelievable...yuri managed to do this in the first years without competition much better model and concept and quality of the images produced. really i'm amazed that this guy is making such results with 6000 images. there is no logic really in micro.

Time ago Uber Images ( a great contributor with best portfolio than this man)  published sales since 1 to 8 september in other treath: 2200 in shutter, 1000 in fotolia (a week)

Because this, i think 1600 is per week. With about earnings of 3500_5000$ per month

No it must be per day, I sell more than 1600/week and am no where near as high rank as him.

no it seems per day...that's what surprises me...in my opinion with the fact that most sellers buy searching for popular, because who want mess round with new images when most are...c...p....this kind of portfolio will forever earn money...they gained momentum with lower competition and that's is. i mean 40000 images this guy and uber 12000 at month? there is something that is wrong. but is overselling portfolio like gstockstudio for example...or selling near some very big house of production with 6000 images that are mostly the same stuff.

in my opinion that is the proof that if you begin uploading great lifestyle images with this system of search you cannot achieve results like that, even uberimages compared to this, and i'm sure he has much higher cost of production than this guy, looks like a minor seller.

And hammy actors at that!

Still, think how boring that must be to shoot.
