  1. As along as you stay away from contributing the same images to the free sites, such as Unsplash, Pexels, etc there shouldn't be any impact on sales on here.
  2. Thanks for the mention I also write guest-posts for other sites/agencies, such as the following published today over at Xpiks: Rising Popularity of Free Downloads at Microstock Agencies Also just published my July 2021 Brutally Honest Earnings Report!
  3. I’ve had a handful of sales over at Photo4Me
  4. Going to publish an interview soon with Michael Mascaro, Arcangel Director, who will hopefully shed some light on their review process. It's often as mysterious as the covers themselves! I had, what I thought, was a nice batch rejected by them - see below. My thoughts are that they just simply lack copy space...am shooting with the 105mm so need to get further away from the subject. As for your statues, I believe it's perhaps a more saturated market (who am I to advise since I'm shooting window facades nonstop lol): https://www.arcangel.com/CS.aspx?VP3=SearchResult&VBID=2U1H

  9. Here's my best-seller "nature" photo.... It's useful for something. That's the whole point of stock, it needs to be useful. Pretty isn't enough. Concepts here around: sustainability, urban farming, future living, livability, organic A purely nature photographer may struggle in microstock, best to go for the midstock / niche agencies.
  10. These 4 "photographers" have must have been on the same excursion... https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/tigers-sunbathing-outdoors-1013143426
  11. Fk microstock, go to where you'll be paid adequately for niche work... https://www.natureinstock.com/about-us
  12. Other agencies joining in on the bandwagon. Below from SignElements (Ingram) I received recently: “Dear contributor, My name is XXXXX and I am the senior content editor here at Ingram Image.
