$0.10 per download. For me uploading new images is not worth it anymore

Recommended Posts

I am not sure I want to upload new images anymore. It takes time and effort to create and upload new images, $0.10 is probably not worth it.

the dimes are rolling in this morning

lol

only here til the end of the month to get final payout

whatever time I have spent uploading keywording,etc is simply not worth even leaving what I have on here anymore

id rather have the pics sit on my hard drive than earn pennies which is totally ridiculous for me

maybe I will look at dreamstime again, I only have 600 images there

I opted out and I'm waiting for my images to be removed from the search.

The quality of your images is excellent, beautiful.

Gtranquillity, I agree. Your images are superb. Very classy. Great lighting. Out of curiosity, what do you use for lighting?

SS has just changed from being my highest income agency to third or fourth position with predictions based on the new rates. January next year will obviously be even worse. I wish I could say that it's a joke, but it isn't. It's greed at its worst.There's absolutely no point in wasting time on uploads here anymore. Taking photos is not free. My equipment costs money and my time is better spent with my family or at the beach than losing money here at Shutterstock.

Thank you SO much for writing that (and for taking the time to take a look :) )
I couldn't resist looking at your portfolio and WOW!! Stunning! Is there any celebrity you did not yet photograph? :)
I don't know if you have a portfolio on Alamy but I read a few times editorial does very well there (can't speak from my own experience nor do I know if it's true, just thought I mention it so you can check it out if it sounds interesting)

Best wishes from the Netherlands

Thank you so much as well Patrick :)
Given the fact you're from Australia, it seems you've visited many countries. Keep up the great work (and hopefully in the near future you can do some more traveling)

As for your question... I use lumopro flashes, umbrella's and softboxes. Everything very simple actually :)
