how so? for all the whining about Stocksy being a 'closed' co-op, Offset clearly is more so, at this stage. I hope I get the opportunity to pitch some content, I love my vintage, soft pastel style for stocksy, but there's plenty of times when I shoot "straight".

Agree! I like your Sarah Moon style, soft pastels as well. good stuff!  not very often seen nowadays actually. Stuff like that would also do well at Offset, so you go for it! when time comes. :)

... I bet you would rather have joined up with Offset, wouldnt you?  now its too late. :)

It's interesting that both seem to make a call to artists to submit 'in the dark', without any clear guidelines of what they're looking for.

Is Offset artist-exclusive or image-exclusive?
If the latter, couldn't someone be in both, with different questions?
If the former, couldn't someone choose to leave everywhere else and sign up with Offset?

Why would it be too late?

Silly names - Offset and Stocksy both.

At a brief glance some of the landscapes are in a style I tried submitting to SS and others but had rejected, mostly for lighting or LCV - fortunately quite a few of them were accepted by the Getty/Flickr program*

*miserable sales though

One thing I would suggest to some here is that since it is a "by invitation only" I would not throw out the email to become an artist to be available to those who have not been invited!

Might not be a good thing to do and could come back to bite you. :(

I don't really consider a link to "apply to be a contributor" as an invitation ...  It's just a line at the bottom of the buyer's invitation.

Maybe it's only the customers that they want to vet in advance. Then they can boast of a better class of buyer.

So basically because you dont Twitter and have no clue whats going on there, you warn somebody that he could get in trouble, over something completely made up because you have no clue whats going on around you and then when someone points it out you change the subject and revert to calling everybody that use Twitter dweebs, which in fact is also Offset. LOL.

Movie, sports stars and businesses are not the dweebs so your lost on that!

The big companies, movie stars, sports figures and all post on there to see how many dweebs are following them so they know how to market and direct their products and to what audience!

So you evidently have no idea who a dweeb is I see!

Dweebs are the faithful following fools whose life revolves around what the  movie, sports athlete or business is doing because they have no real life only a life of fantasy that they wish they had!

Usually known as teen dweebs.

So the top photographers on Offset, who are following Offset on Twitter are dweeps? Gotcha.

LOL, it took you 4 hours to come up with that? So Jake on SS just told you he is done arguing with you and now you come here to argue with me? I am also done arguing with you. Go find someone else to annoy with your endless fallacies. You are the master of argument from inertia.

really? I loooove "offset" and love the simplicity of their logo.
When I first heard "Stocksy" I though of the artist Banksy, which wasn't a bad thing. I also like their traditional American-esque logo.

Jeez! you should be pleases, she was one of the greatest and highest paid photographers throughout the 80s, today her pics sell for 6 figured amounts.
No I didnt say it was the same. I did say that the pastel type technique, soft focus, etc, was similar. Not your subject matter, thats very different.

Now if you REALLY want to earn money from this, forget these two hole-in-the wall outfits. Go for the GI-House-collection!

best wishes.

I agree, that's the only reason I remembered the google nexus page.  It annoyed me so much I just left.

Yep, I'd never seen the nexus page, and I don't like that either. However it's pandering to the young and cool, whereas isn't Offset supposed to be classy?
