  1. As far as I know, they have been hugely promoting their microstock (iStock by Getty) scheme. And within a few weeks, the main agency (Getty images) will start licensing RF images exclusively‚Ķ I would not be surprised if they soon come out with a single scheme (iStock by Getty images? ūüėČ) licensing images from the whole collection for pennies. Actually, it is already a bit what they do by "inviting" their contributors to sign the iStock agreement in order to "maximise their sales potential", as I can read on their website. I believe they just make more money licensing a "pack" of 100 images at $4 each leaving the photographer with a generous 15%, which means $0.60 per image, than licensing 4 individual images at $100 each with 20% royalties for the photographer.
  2. Thank you very much Ian! Actually, I do not submit to Getty. I tend to think their microstock platform is all that will last and this is not something I wish to be part of…
  3. When things get tough, some seem to be running round like headless chickens in search of profit. This is how I feel about Getty right now. Maybe, in the short term, they will attract a lot of new clients by selling such an incredible amount of premium stuff for pennies, but soon their premium stuff will be available elsewhere because there will be no point selling exclusively through their agency. I do not see how this race to the bottom could be beneficial to photographers.

  8. I like this one. Crazy concert. Circle pits all over the place. The heat coming from the crowd was so intense it reminded me the japanese honeybees when they "cook" giant hornets…
