Ed Rooney Posted July 26, 2014 Share Posted July 26, 2014 I’ve been considering going Stockimo. Yes, I’ve been mulling it over now for . . . at least five minutes. Alamy has three different roads forward now: Stock, News and Stockimo. (Are there any others I’ve missed?) I was committed to shooting stock, something I’ve done for some time now, long before I joined Alamy. But QC seems to have taken a strong dislike of me. News? I don’t think so. I’ve done news in the long ago, but oddly they paid me a day rate. I imagine that isn’t going to happen these days. Besides, news set the schedule. Something is happening, and I must run out to cover it . . . on spec. Nah. The nicest thing about being retired is setting my own schedule. And so we come to Stockimo. I picture myself shooting those tiny 10GB Stockimo images, carrying a new, smart, little iPhone in a pocket (It will fit in any pocket) as I move around the city, Yankee cap tipped forward, my eagle eye scanning the scene. Click. Click. Nikons stay home, Sonys stay home. I’ve been set free! I don’t even need a bag on my shoulder or an extra battery. And I don’t have to consider f/stops or shutter speeds or anything — just point and shoot. No more, “Hey, don’t take my picture!” If they catch me pointing I just say, “No. It’s a phone. I’m just calling my mother.” Edo Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
