I'm okay at iStock, Shutter, and Fotolia.
Thanks for your answer :)

Hello friend,

I just visited your SS Gallery.
Nice photos.
(But most of the photos are same angle and same distance...)

All the best! :)

Thanks friend, i appreciate your comment , in these photoshoots ( i have done only 2 for now ) i was concentrated only to change expressions and the subject , but you are right i need to make some variations of the angle and the distance too

I'll throw in my Microstock 2 cents.

what agencies work better for you ?

Depends on your style. AS, SS is a good start, but you can also throw in iStock while you're at it (others would disagree). I understand that more agencies mean more model releases to fill out and administer which can be a pain, so it makes sense to limit to fewer than normal studio work which might as well go everywhere and RF.


Seems like stuff from 2006 - just too unnatural-looking / forced. I think this day in age you need to make more effort stand out and be different to have a chance (it's very competitive). As for the technicals, since I don't do studio work so perhaps others on here can provide better insight in that department.

Good luck

Thank you for you answer and your advices,
about Istock , i tried to register but it seems like they dont accept new contributors anymore

Hello everyone,

I'm new here on the forum and in the stock photography, i do commercial and advertising photography but i have a lot of free time and a studio and all the equipement i need so i'm gonna try stock photography

My question is : what agencies work better for you ? i was thinking at the beginning to do it on all the agencies , but it takes a lot of money and i told my self that it is maybee better to concentrate on 2 or 3 agencies and spend the reste of the time shooting new images

I have tried shutterstock , adobe , dreamstime and bigstockphoto , but now i'm uploading just to adobe stock and shutterstock

this is my shutterstock gallery it will be great to have your opinion on my work , i have not uploaded a lot of photos , i started last week


Thanks in advance for you help
