The Best of Both Worlds?

If you’ve been around GlobalEye/OzImages for a while you’ll know I’ve always  encouraged photographers to work with Rights-Managed licensing and to hold out for fair and reasonable payments.

I’ve always been a Microstock-skeptic but I’ll also acknowledge that there are times when RF licensing makes more sense for a Client… so I’ve upset more than a few people on both sides of the licensing debate.

So with that said, I don’t want this to turn into yet another debate on the various ...

People Photos That Sell

Last time around we talked a bit about Content Vs Subject in photography, and we covered a few of the problems you’re sure to face if you focus too much on the subject you see in front of you, instead of the content a buyer might be able to use.

‘People’ photos are probably the best example I can give you of this…

Any stock photography book you pick up will tell you people photos sell.

If you want to sell stock photos ...

Photos From Compact Digital Cameras?

I’ve had a few questions lately about filesizes and camera specs, and what’s the minimum required for stock, so I thought I’d run through it briefly for everyone.

First up I’ll make the disclaimer that I’m dealing with hundreds of photographers, each with different makes and models of camera, so I don’t make any attempt to keep up with the latest specifications for any specific model. Life’s far too short to even try!

It’s also worth noting, ‘megapixels’ ...

Maximising Your Photo Credits

One simple thing every photographer can do … and should do … every time you make a sale, is ask for a backlink as part of your photo credit. This won’t work for all situations, but these days a huge proportion of sales do have some sort of online component, so these links could really add up to something significant, if you make it a condition of using your photos online.

You only have to look at the stats for the ...

Holiday Photos That Sell

Every year as soon as the shops start to display all their Christmas wares, I start getting emails from photographers wanting to know what subjects they can start shooting to make some holiday sales. These emails have been coming thick and fast this year, so I’ve put together a short list of ideas for interested photographers.

Unfortunately it’s probably too late to expect any sales this year, but the good news is, with a little planning you can get some highly ...

Subject Versus Content in Stock Photography

One question I get over and over from photographers is ‘what subjects sell best?’

Mostly it’s photographers thinking about getting into stock photography and wanting to know what subjects they can go out to shoot to make the most sales, but other times it’s pros looking for some magic bullet or easy shortcut.

Either way it shows a fundamental lack of understanding of stock photography and the difference between Photo Subject and Photo Content.

Your Subject is basically whatever you happen to point ...
