KWheal Posted November 28, 2013 Share Posted November 28, 2013 I was at a social meeting with some other alamy contributors the other week and this topic come up. Have prices changed your thinking on what you shoot With ever downward spiralling fees I for one can say that it has affected me For those who shoot just for stock does anyone a. pay models for a shoot b. do complicated set ups (ones that need some lay out of cash) for that wow shot c. travel for the sole purpose of getting images (I don't mean taking photos of a place you were going to anyway) d. Sit and wait for hours (sometimes days) for that perfect lighting to make an amazing landscape shot With returns as they are can you justify the expense? I for one cannot and as a result somewhat takes the enjoyment out of photography. To sit for hours for that one amazing shot only to see the daily Mail pay $5 makes me despair. You may be able to justify some of a - d if you sell fine art prints or sell direct to someone but stock supply rules out all the above for me Kevin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
