Video Equipment / Sofware / Technique / iPhone for 4k video
« on: October 08, 2017, 18:07 »
Anyone using iPhone 7 plus or 8 plus to shoot 4k video? If so, how's the quality? what's your work flow---such as do you use a gimbal? which software for editing? 

I'm new to video, and wanted to give a go using an iPhone first. Thanks!

Anyone with ImageSource? If so, what's your experience with them? Also anyone contribute to both ImageSource and Westend 61? Any comparison?

General Stock Discussion / Property Release for AirBB rental
« on: January 18, 2016, 19:26 »

I'm wondering about renting homes thru AirBB for location shoots. Has anyone done this before? I'm worried about the owner up charge or refuse rental if I ask them to sign a release up front. The images will be for RM/Macro.


General Macrostock / Anyone with Contour by Getty?

I'm wondering if anyone here is part of the Contour division?

Would appreciate you share your experience on working with them.

Thanks in advance!


I'm trying to get into stock photography and have been researching on profitable/commercially viable subjects to start. Seems like "people" is one of the top seller. I have several questions in regards to this:

1- I'm wondering if images with models on white background in scenarios such as hold a bag of grocery, business & medical setting, beauty/spa etc still in demand given this type of photo is everywhere? Or the market constantly need this type of image and hopefully with a new model/face?

2- What's the return on such a shoot? I estimated around $1-1,500 up front cost (model, hair & makeup, studio, and retouching - I work in fashion so I can style). In return I'd like to get around 50+ images per session (multiple scenario, multiple angles). Can I make that money back with in 6 month or less, given it's well executed?

3- How do you handle the model payment? I'm leaning towards 1 time payment, instead of percentage base on sales, so it's a clean break. Otherwise I can set it at once every 6 month I cut a check to the model based on sales. What's the best?

Any insight and/or experience you can share would be greatly appreciated!
