 :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

To all the artists...


The agencies call us Artists, and then the SS supervisor arrives and rejects the file, for similarity.


In this crazy world of MicroStokers, which is supposed to feed the planet with ideas, we innovate, we create, we get ahead of the advertising agencies and we decide what is trending, I can assure you that the passage in 2021 has been uneventful.


You can pass without fear or distrust to 2021. All clear.

I hug everyone and you, Pete, very especially.

May we have spectacular sales this year.

Remind me, Pete, to give you a discount on the new Stock Selling Platform.

For a real recognition of our work and decent salary. For the dignity of our profession, I light a candle to Saint Narcissus of Gerona. Santo of MindsWorld.info, Tenebroso.es y  MindsPlanet.es ,  from where we will launch the new 5 microstock sales platforms. To be able to be this year.

The first Platform is free, only 30 per year, 100% commission for the artist. If someone can't afford 30 a year, I'll give it to them.
It is not open at the moment, NOTHING. Just one project.
Hug everyone.

Long live 2021, fuck 2020.

Happy New Year from the heart, everyone crazy.

When I win the lottery and open the co-op, by invitation only agency, you're invited.  8) It's only going to pay 40% because I understand operating costs, not because I want to be rich on others work, or snobby and lord over the "artists".

We are artists in a way, but what is art? The eye of the agency, isn't necessarily the same as the buyers and not the same as each of us. I make things that are admittedly not good stock and won't sell much. But, I do what I like. Anyone who wants to make money, needs to learn to do what other people like. I'm not interested.

Another way of putting that is, I choose my own path, and if others don't like that, I might suffer financial loss. The choice is usually one or the other, in a rare case, some people can do both. I can't, I'm fine being myself, even if people don't like what I do.

Sometimes I get lucky or strike a middle point, where what I do and enjoy is also pleasing to others. Most of the time, not. I don't care, I don't do this for the money. I choose to make photos, most of them, for what I see. People who work for the income have to look at things from a different perspective and ambition.

Stock isn't "Art", but it still takes an artist to make good stock and there is an art to making good stock photos.

I have probably printed 10 of my own photos since 2005 (I don't own a color printer anymore I have a B&W laser printer) if I have something made for the wall, it has a place.

There are people, stock people and artists that do creations like this, daily. They will do more tomorrow, and not only that, they do them better and hit that spot that buyers want. That's stock for commercial production, sales and income. I'm not that.

@ alexandersr .............. Equally. You are also in 21, do not break the night or the magic. This year, it must be better, yes. Insurance. Enjoy!!!!!.


@ Uncle Pete .............. You are one step away from entering the new year. Happy New Year.

It is a very wide world, but, I think it applies to each one of us, I mean, it is the soul of each one who is or is not a microstock artist. Regardless of success, it can be for any number of reasons and circumstances.

I understand what you say. I believe more on the inside, one is a microstocker or one is not. Regardless of the environment, work, time, taste, material, niche, ...

It's like determining that my sunset is the best sunset ever, if then the SS examiner comes in and doesn't even pass it, but it's still the best sunset ever, for me.

Defining professional here is very difficult to begin with. But reading your words and those of other colleagues always helps.

Defining success is also complicated and subjective. This market is what it is, a madhouse.

This profession is more, a philosophy, a way of life.

Thank you.
