I agree with Sharply_Done. The good old days are now. Somebody once said"yesterday is a cancelled check:tomorrow is a promissory note:but today is cash"

Thanks for you feedback on how buyers are thinking. Very interesting. The more you know about your customer(the buyer) the better you can plan your marketing. Good luck in finding a new job.

What you said is right on Zenus. I have come to the same conclusion . Most of the aerials I have put up on mircostock have been photos left over from postcards,real estate and engineering planning  assignments. Although i have some advantages most pilots don't have-still doubt that i could make a profit shooting just for microstock.
My advantages are: 1-I  own the plane I use. It is a 1946 Taylorcraft which is very simple and relative inexpensive. 2-I live and take photos in a very rural area with lots of uncontrolled airspace. 3-I have and A&P licence so I can do my own aircraft maintenance.
But still I guess you would say I am a part time microstock photographerand probably stay that way.

Thank you. Very interesting and informative. But you remarks on outdoor photos is discourging for me -since all of my aerial photos are "outdoor". Oh well-I will keep trying to find my niche.

As along time pilot and flight instructor I can only marvel at what Jessica Cox has accomplished as a pilot.She brings to mind the old saying-"where there is a will there is a way"

That sounds like western Montana. I have seen snow here in Western Montana in June also. In fact in 1956-I saw snow in July( although very light)
