  1. Just got my first 10 cents sale. Years working through the ranks for this. I'm not closing it down completely, just disabling sales period. Should they revert these greedy changes, I'll activate the sales again. Until then, not giving away work for free.
  2. Well, I forsee the portfolio of a lot of people finally becoming passive "income". Stopping all uploads if this is really headed the direction 99.9% of us seem to believe it is. This was never passive income and I always hated that term, now it seems it will finally become that. That is of course, if we don't decide to fully delete our accounts.
  3. Yes, I edited my post. That support article I linked is outdated, the screenshot is old. There are only 2 options now. Even that they cannot get right. Just WoW. Anyway, if anyone wants to deactivate their account, or delete it entirely, see here.
  4. This is from here. "To opt out of sales, log into your account and navigate to the Account Settings page from the drop-down menu under your name in the top right corner of the page. Scroll down to the section How can we license your work? and select No for the sales options." Funny I don't see the How we can license your work section? Anyone else? I guess that support article is outdated. I have a feeling it's gonna get a lot of views.
  5. "To opt out of sales, log into your account and navigate to the Account Settings page from the drop-down menu under your name in the top right corner of the page. Scroll down to the section How can we license your work? and select No for the sales options." Funny how I don't see that section. Am I the only one?

  7. Finally a reply and case ID. Still, way too long and too many days without any reply, very disappointed to say the least.
  8. Another day without a reply, another day without a case ID and being able to submit the images...
  9. I do a lot of sports photography, and as usual, I contacted Shutterstock well in advance to get a case ID to submit with the images. The event was on August 10th, and I contacted them originally on the 7th. Here's a timeline: August 7th - Email sent with all info regarding the event and proof of permission to photograph it SS reply - macro reply asking for info regarding the event (had already been given). My reply - asking SS to read the previous email, and sending all the info again. August 8th My reply - asking for an update August 9th My reply - asking for an update and mentioning the event was happening in a few hours. August 10th SS reply - apologizing for the delayed response, and asking me for a PDF of the email confirming I had permission (a screenshot in the past was always just fine). My reply - sent all the info, along with the PDF of the email August 11th *tumbleweed* August 12th *tumbleweed* August 13th *tumbleweed* August 14th *tumbleweed* What's the point of contacting Shuterstock well in advance to get a case ID, and should I even bother given that it's so much trouble to get a case ID, and now the event has passed and is no longer relevant? So much for wanting to get pictures up while they're still relevant. And I still haven't received a case ID. Can anyone look into this? @Alex Shutterstock or @Anna Shutterstock perhaps?
  10. Thanks a lot Rudy, I appreciate it! Will look into those.
  11. Not much, so the remote camera would be behind the goal (1 in the picture), and I'd be around half way to the midfield (2 in picture)
  12. Howdy everyone, Does anyone know of any good (cheap) alternatives for Pocket Wizards? The purpose is for remotely release the shutter of the camera (not flash) that will be behind a football (soccer) goal. I was looking at the yongnuo rf603c ii but I can't find information if it's compatible with my Canon 6D Mark II. Doesn't have to be Yongnuo, could be anything else. I just have their knock off Canon flashes and they work perfectly. Thanks!
  13. Yes, more than once. The problem is for many events (usually locally), the "Go ahead and shoot" is given either by phone, or other means that Shutterstock doesn't accept as valid, such as text messages, social media messaging, etc. Shutterstock does seem to be very strict indeed for this type of situation, and I have given up on trying to get smaller events here - not gonna bother people again and say "Oh by the way, can you also send me an email saying who you are, who you work for, and that yes, that you do agree for me to shoot the event?". It's just not worth it. Good luck!
  14. Thank Alex, once again. It's great to see someone here who cares! Much appreciated.
