Shocking! Will you be dropping them?

Well, honestly not that shocking, we all knew this is coming sooner or later. I didn't expect it this soon, but what to do :)
I have been gradually selling most of my studio and travel video gear for the past few month and started to invest time and money in developing other fields. This is my answer. Today I have a portfolio of 17k videos, and my earnings are lower then what they have been when my portfolio was around 5k videos, so investing time in increasing amount and variety seems pointless over time. The future sales are going to drop no matter what.
In most of the professions in normal terms your income grows together with your professional level, but with stock while you invest your time and money to become better as a pro, it seems the income keeps go down.
I believe this is about time to learn and do new things.

I did learn a lot during the years I have been doing full time stock, so I can't say this was a wasted time.

Same question and from me. I cannot understand from your answers Rasika.

sorry guys, you are asking the wrong question here.
my answer won't change anything for you :)
specially that I don't have an answer yet.
it needs time to understand how situation is changed and how to adjust to it,
so the answer I already gave you is pretty much all I know for now

There are no wrong questions.
Just wrong answers.
Indeed your answer won't change my "images only / no released persons" policy for SS.
Personally, it took me more than a year to understand how I killed the industry letting P5 price my files. So there is no blaming here. I was just curious :)

Good luck.

I am in a big doubt that your pricing on pond5 had any influence on the industry :)
I don't know what is happening on your pond5 account, but my pond5 sells like 5-10 vid's a month at its best, it seems they have stopped invest in promotion long ago, and I can literally point when exactly it happened, about a year ago, when all the sales suddenly dropped by 80-90% in one day. At least this is the impression I have, maybe its different at your side :)
