My exclusive earnings have been solid. I am continuing to upload exclusive there when I do!

Thanks all! Will stop by now and then as I will still submit some content but not as much as I use too. I still earn thousands each month from stock but the downward trend is upon us and my family needs come first.

Thanks Everest! I still have a soft spot for medical in me but in this atmosphere of Covid I do not want to go back into the hospital! I have used the books I am selling for myself for years and it hit me why not sell something I have a passion for and help others at the same time :-) Topics cover diabetes, blood pressure, natural remedies, edible plants and the like. I will just use stock as a fun side gig and take my video expertise into my new area. Life is short and that is why I started stock video in the first place! Now moving on to a new exciting world!

P5 exclusive sales have been ok for me nothing earth shattering but decent. Combined my Exlcusive and Non-exclusive account I made $1,600.00 on Pond5 on my payout this month.

Don't be sorry it is one of the best adventures I have ever been on!!!! Truly amazing I did it full-time for 10 years! It is now a side hobby which is just fine :-) Loved every second of this journey and it gives me the ability to move on and try new things. People told me when I stated that I could never make a living at it :-) Well I did. I am sure some will say I can never make it on my next adventure and they could not be more wrong:-)

I have learned lot over the past 10 years! I have shot in hospitals with my drone, out of a hot air ballon, at a fire station and the list goes on and on. My income has not been climbing even as I have produced a lot over the past year and so now I am moving on to other pastures. I have been very blessed to have done stock video as a living for the past 10 years and I have zero regrets!! It has been fun and amazing but I can not sustain my family just doing stock anymore! I have a degree in radiology from Kettering so I am going to focus on medical needs outside of the medical field. I will be selling health books that have impacted my life and I believe people will need in order to stay healthy in the future! I will still dabble in stock here and there but am shifting my focus now to health and wellness. Thanks to all here for the encouragement and discouragement :-) the forum can be a wild place. I have spent the most amazing 10 years with my family doing stock!!! Good luck to those who are in it full-time still and a final and happy farewell to all of you!  Crafted Shutter aka jjneff

Just got an email technical error will pay you June 15... Something doesn't add up. It is MY money you are withholding and a technical glitch doesn't take a month to fix!!

Oh FUN, Can I play :-) Please wear a mask if you feel you need too!!! Please don't wear one if you don't feel you need to. I will love and support your free choice either way. Will I wear one, if they ask yes if they don't care no I am pretty easy to get along with. Now what are we missing from my medical training ohh you mean washing your hands is more important?? AHHH YES but go ahead and don't wash your hands grab your mask wear it to a bunch of stores keep touching it and then go out for dinner. Just remember your mask kept you safe. Or better yet wear it on your chin or below your nose and feel safe. All is good.

Thanks it makes me feel good to leave an honest reply!!

Now Everybody Post this article on their social media include links to your Adobe and Pond5 accounts! Do it NOW!!

People need to realize just how bad this deal is! and if you think you are good now welcome to January!! When their Staff takes a 50% pay cut in January then they can come talk to me! You see the pain is just starting and the good new is you don't have to take it!!! I am uploading amazing exclusive footage to Pond5 right now!

Yes, I deactivated all my photos on SS and have not uploaded any new content to them. Pond5 and Adobe are are best bet in town. I am very willing to take some pain
for long term gains. The way SS is going video will be at 25cents per download very soon!

Yes sales have completely dried up on the video side!

to find a way to force an audit from a third party would be better! Heck call the IRS and beg them to audit SS

I have a little Canon 4k :-) Thanks for the kind words and I hope you have great success on the site we need it!

I like your direction on this. We do need to find out where the buyers are! We also need to highlight where they can go!
