Aren't you involved in some sort of business analysis as a profession? You have completely missed the point of Olivier's comment about the effect of microstock on photographers' incomes. What has happened is that an entire global business has been trashed so that a very few individuals (who own these businesses) can earn their few millions of bucks a year. An incalculable amount of money allowed to pour down the drain so that individuals such as Orringer can become relatively wealthy. 2 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
