Bryan Posted November 19, 2021 Share Posted November 19, 2021 With the substantial downturn I've been seeing in net income of late, I find that I am more reluctant to put myself out to take photos. So, for example, I am uploading fewer shots of people. Once I would happily shoot street images, and when appropriate, would ask permission to take some photos - and that was rarely refused. Now I find it difficult to motivate myself to go the extra mile, I guess that this first started to set in when a tribe of us were ejected from Live News, but it's become more of a problem now that we are regularly seeing photos sell for very little. Further to this, while the main reason why I stopped reporting Alamy images seen in the papers was the 50 to 40% cut, I had been thinking for a while that the effort involved was disproportionate to the value of the sales that I found. I just wonder how sustainable this industry is, will there be enthusiastic new blood entering and prepared to work for less, or will this business model slowly wither away? 2 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
