  1. Are you finding that it is harder to edit drone images than the photos from the DSLR? After few years of self improvement, I have published a Udemy course about editing Aerial Drone Images in Lightroom Classic. You can check it out if you are interested: Drone Photo Editing in Lightroom It would be great to hear some feedback from the fellow contributors.

  3. Hello I brought a new drone. Would you think that this kind of footage would sell?(I attached the file DJI_0195.MP4 ) Best regards James
  4. Has anyone here bought the recently released DJI Spark and has (successfully) used it for stock photography? It looks more like a toy than a proper working tool (Mavic or above), but I am curious if anyone who owns one has used it here.
  5. With the increasing popularity of drones, I think the category Aerial would be useful to contributors. What do others think of this?
  6. Hi everyone, I have been doing aerial photography with a drone but I have not had good results so far although I would like to invest more time. What do you think of the current photos I've done so far? Here is the link: www.shutterstock.com/sets/106129262-drone-photography.html?rid=162882788 Thank you.
  7. Hello to all fellow Shutterstock contributors! I've been submitting images to Shutterstock for a couple of years now, here and there and have a small portfolio of 500 or so images. These earn on a monthly average, about $10-15 or annually, I earn around $0.45 per image / per year on average (this has gone up from an average of $0.40 / per image / per year. Much of my portfolio is Editorial. I do very little Commercial model-released stock, though around 50% is wildlife and landscape images. I'm just curious as to how those with larger portfolios and a longer track-record with Shutterstock are doing? Especially those who have a fair bit of Editorial stock in their collection, as it helps me plan how much time I devote to Shutterstock in the future. To be frank, Shutterstock has a fair volume of sales, but I find that $0.25 and $1.88 licenses don't really supply me with enough money to cover the high cost of producing stock images. I would also be interested to hear from anyone who is making reasonable returns with a 50/50 editorial/commercial collection similar in subject matter to my own. Thanks in advance and look forward to reading any replies!
  8. Hey guys, have any of you noticed a difference in your video clips being purchased at a higher rate if they've been color graded or left flat? Thanks
  9. Hello! During my vacation in Asia I filmed (4K) long beach with palms, sand, sea and people on the beach. My drone my flying beside the beach (not exactly over people) at the height ~30 meters with speed ~30 km/h and many people can be seen on the video. But they are very difficult to identify, even it is difficult to see myself, that it is me, when drone flies beside that part of beach where I stand and control it. I wonder if I should submit it as an ordinary video or editorial? Thanks for help.
  10. Loads of footage comparing the video quality of the two drones: DJI Pantom 4 to the DJI Phantom 4 Pro. The ultimate birds fight! https://youtu.be/9nOCKJQ1eb4
  11. Just joined Shutterstock and seeking some help. Enjoyed making this shot. Critiques and opinions welcomed.
  12. Hello everyone! I am new to shutterstock. Drone videographer. Just uploaded 1 video. It was 1 minute long, but someone told me that not more then 30 second videos have higher chances on shutterstock. So i split it into two parts. I just wanna ask you is that true and did i make a correct decision? And also what are the tips for video footages? Thanks in advance
  13. I recently bought a dji Inspire 1 drone because I want to add some aerial photography to my portfolio. All the clips I have uploaded have been accepted by other agencies, but I am having trouble getting the footage accepted by Shutterstock. A lot of what I have submitted has been rejected for noise and artifacts. When I watch the clips, I don't see anything unusual, but perhaps I don't know what to look for. Can anyone give me some advice on what to do/not do when shooting video with a drone? I would upload a sample clip, but they are all over the allowed limit. I appreciate any help that anyone can give. Have a great day.
  14. Around Sussex, time lapses and drone footage (Phantom 4 Pro) in Southern England) https://youtu.be/BXnlMRe8R-8

  16. Hello Brighton, short movie with time lapses and drone footage. A lot of drama in the second part, but luckily a happy ending... Your comments appreciated https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hG4SZP9tPRI
  17. I am really tempted to buy a drone, I am in awe of some drone images I have seen. I was thinking of DJI Mavic Pro, it's about in the price range I am considering. But would it be good enough for stock? Is anyone having any photographs approved here taken on mavic?

  21. Hey everyone, I'm new to shutterstock contributors and have been doing a lot of research online about selling aerial footage filmed with a drone and have been coming up short. All I'm looking for is to find out if I can legally sell the aerial footage I've recorded. Ive heard about section 333 exemptions and even having to have a pilots license before you can sell some footage you get. I have waaayyyy too much drone footage from the past few years from various projects and clients and figured I could try and sell some of it as long as its legal... I'm sure someone could use an aerial shot of a boston sunrise behind the city or a shot of the zakim bridge so I'm hoping for the best! And for the record my drone has been registered since the FAA opened up registration in December. Any info is appreciated! Thanks, Torin
  22. Hi guys, Just thought i'd quickly introduce myself. My name is Phil Harris, I'm from the UK and I'm a part time drone operator, primarily capturing aerial video for the TV and film industry. I currently trade by the name of Aerial Insight, but that may change soon... I'm also a part time blogger and techie at a local remote control/drone shop called RC Geeks, near Gatwick airport in the UK. I've considered joining a stock footage site for a while now to earn a few pence every now and then for footage i have already shot so this is the beginning of my adventure in that sense. I look forward to sharing my footage and seeing what kind of stuff you guys capture as well. I'm always up for critique and learning All the best, Phil
  23. Hey Guys, Just wondering is it recommended to shoot with a flat profile? personally i always shoot with a flat/LOG for color correction but should i just use the standard for clips i wanna sell? Dan
