in cavan i have only 15 images but sold nothing, the problem is that i m scared to upload there good images because i have the impression that they sell mostly lifestyle.

Do you want to share your Cavan Portfolio with us?

Actually I have not received yet any feedback about the link to my Cavan portfolio. As I told before I want to have some feedback about contributors with more experience or even those that have been accepted in Stocksy, to know your opinion about if these kind of imagery will be interesting for Stocksy or I need to create more risky ones. I understand these lifestyle samples are not in the edge of any sort of risky concepts, but wanted to have some feedback starting from this samples as a starting point.

i told you...they re good for cavan images or westend in my opinion but nt for stocksy...stocksy right now dd only something that is not in the collection, they protect the contributor they have right now.
but in my opinion is not a big loss. ..if stocksy sold like hot cakes people like ja lund would have uploaded only 5 600 files or 20000...ask this to yourself. right now  everywhere is over saturated...stocksy has a lot of files already and adding everyday. i love some contributor , take inspiration and checking their folio i saw aa strong slowdown on their uploading...

I wouldn't be sure since it was some years ago that I submitted there at only got success for the first months, but i would say that for sure less. Actually from the last 2 shootings got 1 or no sales, don't remember. You know how hard and expensive is to do each lifestyle shooting, in my country is not like in eastern Europe as you mentioned, here models are not so easy to find for few cents, you have to pay if you want quality ones.

 know and   the same for me...i went to eastern europe for magazine but didn't do any lifestyle in the first 5 6 trip then i did in the last two   trip and i shoot probably 8 9 days out of 15 , i use both model from agency friends, people stopped in the street and every people was like having trained in front of the camera since they were born natural, but in eastern europe is pretty difficult to find that western looks that sell, cue town is the place to go, medium price compared to big cities but again price are not cheap at all, i live at seaside also and rally it's impossible to find any girl part some agency with medium quality and super prices. but again lifestyle is still over covered in any field in my opinion...andeveryday there are thousand of people from russia and especially ukraine where minimum salary is kinda 150 dollar at the moment joining the company.
when i started i felt that working for my territory was cheaper and less important compared to micro and a worldwide exposure, in these days i find myself working much more for people and company near my territory, especially summer i work for rich tourist and earn much much more than any micro macro agency.

in addiction there is zero hate towards photo in eastern europe...i can walk in the street of moscow and stop 100 girl sk if they want a portrait 99 accept without hesitation...where i live if i walk  with a camera in  the beach people think am a pedhophile or a paparazzi..ahaha...that's why everybody seems joining the micro industry in russia.....everybody has at least 5 10 girlfriend model like who love to pose, spend hours in front of the mirror, even when they are young their mother teach them very hard how to pose  even for a simple snapshots at sea.

  the diversity angle is good. they have a couple of guys shooting like you, I can't speak for Stocksy as to what they are looking for, but all the best!

Thanks Gillian
Anyway, I thought the review process is shorter after reading a few comments here. Guess I need to be more patience.

They are very diverse and candid photos. Today stocksy is very exquisite, but at another time you would be accepted without problems

The email just in. It's a big no. Bu at least this time they gave explanation. They felt my images are a little much like a stock. They also say I should improve my white balance and post process. They want most accurate possible skin tone. Fair enough I guess, cause I'm color blind. I should buy those grey card soon.
Good luck to anyone here still wait for response.

sorry, Stocksy is very elitist and knows that the stability of his collaborators is to admit few people and photos.Sites slike Offset and deparatments such as premium adobe and infinite fotolia have lost their sales because they admit many photos and contributors.

Anyway, stocksy is not what it used to be either.

...im blind color too

At least you are stock mainstream I guess. Well, that answer was less frustrating that those "no aesthetic (or commercial) appeal' rejections I got in Adobestock!
:D :D :D
