General Stock Discussion / Microstock, what does it mean?
« on: July 05, 2007, 19:46 »
I'm curious- I talk to people everyday about photography and design.  There are ebbs and flows to every industry, but as a group we seem to have gotten over the hump of people giving 'microstock' respect.  The heated debates between macro and micro still happen, but the conversation seems to have drifted to the two living in harmony. I don't really care.

Lately I've noticed more companies embracing the term 'microstock' to define their service or product.  My question is, what does 'microstock' mean now? Are there specific characteristics?  Community? Price point?

Howdy Gang.  We've just made communication an even bigger priority...ehemm...especially after some of the latest industry releases...we decided to put up a twitter feed on our blog.

You'll now have real time feedback from us. Pretty cool!

Not sure it's a first for the industry, but we're interested in leading the charge to make communication with artists a top priority.

SnapVillage.com / Microstock or Midstock?
« on: June 25, 2007, 10:50 »
So I'll put this out there.  Well, since they finally put up their about page...is Snap Village a microstock or midstock?

"SnapVillage is a major step forward for microstock with fresh, thoughtfully designed innovations that simplify and improve the experience of licensing low-cost, user-generated, royalty-free photography via the Internet."

" SnapVillage is a fresh approach to microstock with a clean, intuitive website, straightforward pricing and purchasing as well as innovative interactivity features that generate its proprietary "Snappyness" picture ratings. SnapVillage features the revolutionary 'Pick Your Own Price' model that gives photographers control and flexibility so they can maximize their income."

Apparently I'm the first to find Corbis's newest website.

I picked it up in the times:

Well, I guess I'll have to laugh since we were there too, but 'red car' pulls up some interesting results!

Haha.  Ok, so we can make fun of ourselves a bit. :)

That old thread just kept coming up- I thought it was time to start something fresh with an upgrade to the subject.  Again we appreciate everyone's effort- it's been a hard grind, but things are definitely picking up steam. We still have lots of work to do, but we're going to continue to earn your trust day by day.

With a growing image collection we have to work extra hard for artists to see the progress. When you get Ron hogging all the 'downloads' it makes even tougher. :)

If anyone is in the Bay Area, we'd love to see you at our first birthday gig. http://www.luckyoliver.com/birthday

Hey guys, I thought I'd let you know that on Saturday Jill will be leading a group of people on a photoshoot of Granville Island, Vancouver.  We've got access to some great locations.  Shoot her an email if you're in the area!

I thought I would post a link here for those photographers that are interested in where we're headed. Sorry for the promotion- I just thought it would help answer a lot of the questions we get. Feel free to share your thoughts on the blog.

I'll be posting more information about our marketing efforts over the next few months.  Anyhow, thanks for letting me share!
