A Guide to Shooting Picture Library Photography

Introduction

Welcome to An Insight into Stock Photography. This article is based on a talk given at Focus on Imaging 2007. I hope you find it interesting. Just remember these are my views only, they are not gospel and have been put together based solely on my experience of shooting and selling stock photography, primarily through Alamy and photographic magazines.

We’ve seen a lot of change in the markets and the economy in general. This has affected the stock photography market. But don’t lose hope, magazines and newspapers have an insatiable appetite for images.

One Approach

Fingers in pies – and finding opportunities to build a business from photography. And stock photography is just part of that – a chance for someone else to sell your images for you and to for you to get paid, while off doing something else. It’s like having commission only sales people working for you. The thing is you have to give them something saleable but you can’t give them a kick up the backside if you’re not selling much!!

Some commercial photographers don’t do it, some do, some make a living from it. The choices and balance is up to you, as a commercial photographer I do some of it.

It may seem daunting but it’s not and it’s within most people’s grasp. Provided you understand the customer. This applies to both the Picture Library and the Ultimate Buyers.

Take a look around you. Pictures are everywhere – the printed media in its widest context has a massive appetite for images on a daily basis.

Humans generally don’t like reading online – well not for very long – they like tactile magazines to flick though and dip into and if they didn’t, the newspaper industry would be long dead by now – wouldn’t it !!

Every magazine, exhibition, web site, company brochure and newspaper all need pictures on a regular basis – and if they don’t have it or can’t send a photographer to go out and shoot it – then they’ll buy it.

Printed media works on deadlines that go right down to the wire, so immediacy is important and the shots can’t be the same old ones turned out time after time .

The picture buyer generally will work to longer lead times and less tight deadlines – but not always – the images they buy can be more general or iconic – like these motivation posters you see in some shops .

Take for instance a sports shot of runners on a track – you might see it in the sports pages of a newspaper for a day, then maybe in a Athletics magazine that month – but it can soon become a poster with a motivational statement “Defeat” or “Winner” that has a whole new market.

So where are you – the photographer – in the pecking order so to speak. Take a look below.

• The Photographer
• The Stock Library
• The Picture Buyer

You’re on the top of the list with the picture library between you and the buyer, but at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to getting paid. But whilst you need to meet the technical requirements of the library and other submission requirements, it’s the image buyer you must be thinking of long before you even contemplate picking up the camera.

The picture library will do the sales and marketing of your images, for a percentage which varies from library to library, but they must have images that buyers want.

Before you sign up, read through the agreement and see if the set up suits your requirements.

Diverse Sectors

Each of these publications, Gossip magazines, The Times Newspaper, Corporate Publications, serve a different market – but each buy photos from Alamy to mention just one library – they also buy from many others too – in order to make the publication that day, week or month.

So what sort of pictures do these publications buy? Well it’s very varied. Just flick through and look at the side of the shot, it’s likely to have an image source next to it.

• Take a Break – items / products, staged poses – youth etc.
• Daily mail – travel
• Environment – utilities, waste, pollution etc, – front cover.

Get Rich Quick – NO!

Some say it’s a numbers game – true to some extent, but the way I look at it is this, if you’ve got 10,000 images of shots that won’t sell – you’ve got nothing .

For me as a professional photographer that provides photography services, it’s the long term view – looking to grow and maintain a set of saleable images.

Remember pictures are perishable – i.e. – they go out of date – and this will vary dependent upon the industry sector or subject they apply to.

Transport, fashion, IT, business, communications all need, in my view, re-shooting each year. For example a man in a suit by a computer the size of a house in the 1950’s isn’t the modern industry image of today.

Wildlife, sky scenes, landscapes, travel pictures – less so – but look at any developing city – take London – since the Wheel and the Gherkin went up all the skylines are out of date , also look at Dubai – developing all the time.

Easy money – no it’s not – but you can build up an underlying income if you think about saleable pictures and keep them relevant – remember they have to illustrate a story – so need to tell a story in their own right.

What is Stock

So let’s take a look at how you get started and who there is to choose from. Each Library has its own benefits and key target markets, so find one that suits you and what you are good at shooting.

• Getty
• Alamy
• Comstock
• Jupiter
• Superstock
• Fotolibra
• Istockphoto,
• Pixtal
• Jumpimages
• Adams
• Nevstock

Most will have web sites and these will stipulate how to join of make submissions.

$ Sites

For me I don’t like them and here’s why. I’m going to set you a challenge and at the end of it I will buy the photograph from you. So you go and shoot a subject you like, do your research, do the shoot, post produce the image and upload it to my site and hey presto – I pay you 50p at today’s exchange rate — any takers ? I rest my case!

Submission Rules

All stock libraries will set technical requirements and these will vary depending on how much server space they want to invest in.

Alamy work to 48mb TIFF minimum – 1, to keep the bar high enough that only the serious photographer applies and 2, to give their customers’ choice and immediate access to high quality images. Now they’ve changed this from the above to accept JPEG images – so your file size is down to around 8 meg.

Others work on thumbnail sizes then let the buyer contact you. Personally, I think, trying to judge a shot off a 100 or 200k image is not doing the shot justice.

Others specify minimum standards of camera / model, or make you go though an approval or recommendation process. The thing with this is to find a library that matches your needs and capabilities. Also the amount time you have available to dedicate to stock photography.

Licenses

Non-Exclusive License

The buyer pays a licence fee each time they use the image, but another picture buyer can also purchase and use the image under the same licence.

The picture buyer must specify, each time: intended use, media, territory and duration.

Pricing is based on intended use, media, duration and territory. The territorial pricing will be matched to the specific country.

Exclusive License

The image buyer pays a licence fee each time they use the image.

The picture buyer obtains exclusive use of an image under the terms of the licence: these terms may affect the use, media, territory and/or duration in which the image can by used by other buyers.

Rights protection can be an advantage for high-profile projects such as ad campaigns and promotions.

Royalty Free (RF)

The picture buyer pays a one-off fee – they do not have to pay royalties to contributors on a use-by-use basis.

The image buyer will not know who else is using the image.

The picture buyer should check that the image has the appropriate releases before using the image where a release is required, for example Model release for people and property release for prominent buildings or logos.

Commission

  • 50/50
  • 60/40 but with global distribution
  • 70/30
  • 80/20 – Photographers Direct

Again find a picture house that works for you and also find out when you’ll get paid and any minimum balances you must have to get paid. Sometimes you can wait 3 months for your money.

Work Flow

As a provider of photography services I shoot RAW and make minor adjustments to images. Now I’m using Adobe Lightroom in place of Raw Shooter and it’s speeded up my work flow considerably. Photoshop – I use this far less now but only to colour and touch out any dirt or what might look like dirt – by this I mean the occasional bird in the sky can look like sensor dust if it’s a way off in the distance. Resize your image. Output the file to the required format.

Then depending on the library upload over the Internet or cut a CD / DVD.

An Example

Take an older camera the Nikon D70 – 6.1 mega pixel camera. Raw files were around 4 or 5 MB and a TIFF was at 17MB with the JPEG at 4MB.

To meet the submission guidelines you need to Interpolate the image – make it bigger. In Photoshop this was Image > Image Size>Percent. Increase by 168% to give a 48 – 50 MB sized image. Then Save as Jpeg – 5 – 7MB.

I now shoot on a Nikon D300. RAW files are now 18 – 19 mb, opened in CS3 at 34 mb – requiring interpolation by only 20%.

What I’ve Sold

Wonderful sunsets, superb travel pictures, glamour images, or maybe my Dad’s cat! These are just a few examples of shots that have sold.
My dad’s cat, police cars, road signs, street scenes in New York, studio models and traffic jams.

Finding More Value

There are plenty of publications that will promote your sold work, FPME (Now out of print March 2009) is just one of them and if you have sold a shot just let the editor know – chances are it can earn you some more money.

Not only that, look out for sites like Photographer Direct that offer an Image Request service – all you need to do is send 1 email. Also look to the corporate clients – they too may take an image if it fits with their style – be brave, make that approach, but do your research first.

Top Tips

 

  • Find a stock library that suits you
  • Don’t be put off by submission specifications
  • Know your end image buyer
  • Start shooting what you are comfortable with – then move on
  • Check out what images already exist
  • Read the Picture Needs
  • Remember pictures images are perishable
  •  

    Check out how many pictures of your subject matter already exist in a library, then ask yourself – can these be improved, shot differently or updated.

    Read the picture needs issued by Stock libraries, they tell you what sells and what is needed, don’t ignore them.

    Thank you for reading this article, I hope you found it interesting, should you have any questions, please feel free to make contact through the web site.

ArticleNiche Promotion — Top Article Directory List

Article Marketing is well known.  Articles generally consist of an article body that has useful knowlege, and an article resource area that contains links back to the author’s Web site. This technique is sometimes mistakenly called “Bum Marketing.” Actually, Article Marketing is just one of the many approaches that all Bum Marketers use. (Bum Marketing gets its name from the fact that it is so easy even a bum could do it.)

The great feature of article marketing is that you can count on two different sources of traffic. If you write a cool resource box at the end of the article, those same readers will want more information and click the links in the box. Once the article is syndicated, the links in the resource box will be seen as backlinks to your site by Google, helping you rank in their search engine.

A key consideration in Article Marketing is deciding what Article Directories to send your content to. Having a good article directory list that you can turn to for this is and essential ingredient for a successful article traffic strategy. rather than researching article directory strength yourself, you can easily find lists of directories to choose from. The top article directory list will list article directories based on their Google page rank and Alexa score.

One problem that you will run into is that you can find excellent article directory lists, but they are often out of date as soon as they are published. What is needed is a site that ranks article directories on an on-going basis. So, be sure an look for a site that updates their list regularly. One such site can be found on MasonWorld.com. Their article directory site is managed by a Perl script that gets updated every Sunday night.

In summary, article marketing can be a great traffic generation resource. Just make sure that you have the latest data when deciding what article directories to submit to.

Searching For The Best Flight Online

A You can do a flight search online by visiting discount ticket sites one at a time, or by using a flight search service site like sidestep. You really have to pay attention to what comes up though, as sometimes savings are not worth what they might seem. If you cannot choose your own days, and you cannot be flexible about when you leave, a cheaper ticket is not going to do you much good. The greatest deals come from travelers who are flexible in their schedule. If you can leave a day later than you intended and the airline is offering savings for the option, the deal cannot be beat.

You also have to think about stopovers when you are doing a flight search for a better deal on your airline tickets. There are times when a flight is one way with one stop, or no stops, but a less expensive version might stop in three different cities along the way. Most do not like that many stopovers because they feel that ups the chances of lost luggage and takes too long. However, if you do not mind that too much, and you find a cheaper ticket through a flight search with many stops, take it if the savings seem to be worth the extra hassle.

Keep in mind when you do flight searches that the day of week does matter as well as the timing. Looking for flights as early as possible is going to bring up the cheapest air travel deals for you to select from. If you wait until a week before you have to go, your flight search is going to yield very few deals. It also depends on the day of the week you choose to search. Some say that Wednesday night is when many cheaper flight seats open up, so you may want to look then, or first thing on Thursday morning to see what type of deals you can find. You may save fifty dollars by searching, or you may save two hundred and fifty. You will not know until you look.

How To Choose A Movie Download Service

With the advent of PC’s, DVD’s, Mp3 players and iPod’s, taking your movies and music along with you has never been easier. Building your portable library however can be an expensive venture if you are paying a fee every time you download a movie, game or music. Fortunately, there are many different movie download sites to evaluate and join to watch unlimited free movies.

So, how do you evaluate a movie download service and watch unlimited free movies? First, it’s important to note that most movie download networks are not completely free. They usually have a set up fee or there may be a monthly charge. There are 4 important criteria that a respectable movie download service should meet. This will tell you whether or not you will get a valuable and enjoyable service for your money.

The first thing you should look for in a movie download site is a guarantee of no spyware, adware or pop-ups. Spyware, adware and pop-ups are not only annoying; they can be downright dangerous to your computer system. Many people also consider them an invasion of privacy.

The more options that are offered, the better chances you have of being well satisfied with the money you have spent of your movie download service. Some movie download services will also offer sporting events, music videos and even your favorite TV programs.

If the technical support is via email, the turn around time to get an answer to your question should be 24 hours or less.

Can A Few Enjoyable Exercises Make That Double Chin Disappear?

We usually think of buff aerobic instructors shouting out dance instructions, or perhaps weight trainers urging clients to go for the burn when we think of exercise. But there really are many more types of specialized fitness you may not know of. For instance, some fitness routines are specially designed to simply tone specific parts of your body. Check your chin, and face it, there may be a cool new exercise regimen to help you just in that area.

Hard to imagine isn’t it? But facing up to your facial fitness may improve your looks, and take years of your perceived age by toning up your chin’s erroneous zones. People judge you by your looks, and cameras tend to exaggerate the unsightliness of those extra folds under your chin. Surgery is just not an effective solution for this issue. But if you are willing to accept it, these unique exercises may be just the thing to upgrade your facial looks.

Many people do not realize that the face has a good deal of muscles, and a few nifty exercises can help accommodate those muscles and bring them to the tone of a really outstanding facial expression. A double chin can be thought of as a muscular inequality in regards to the rest of your face, therefore there exists a few good exercises that can help remove it. Like any exercise regimen, it is not something that will happen overnight. No. It is something that you will have to work on for a bit of time.

There are probably a number of exercises that can help to get rid of double chin, but two of the most common ones are going to be discussed here. Afterward, there will be a short bit about breathing techniques in relation to these exercises. If you follow through on what is about to be discussed, you shouldn’t have much of a problem working those plump muscles in that face of yours. If you want good facial tone, then you need to put those muscles to hard work. And here’s how you can do that.

The first facial exercise to be discussed here involves, at the very start, an effort to remain seated but erect nd upright with your head tilted back a bit. Reach for the collarbone area a tad bit below your neck and give a decent grab and tug at the skin of your neck. It is expected that you maintain a decent tug for best results. While doing this, protrude forward your lower jaw while maintaining a tight squeezing of your lips. Remain in this position for about three to four seconds, then release for another three and repeat the process again.

While the previous exercise is convenient to do anytime you are seated. However, the second exercise requires you to lie on your back on the floor. Press your chin against your chest by lifting the back of your head off the floor. Hold this position for a few seconds, and carefully relax by lowering your head. You should plan to repeat this motion a handful of times for each exercise session.

If possible, plan to exercise a few times each waking hour of the day, every day, in a systematic way. No important goal can be reached without application and dedication. You will not get concrete results unless you are fully engaged in doing these strength and tone building exercises targeted at removing your unpleasant double chin.

Breathing is often overlooked in practicing exercises of any kind. Without properly timing your breathing to the pattern of your double chin exercises, you will not get efficient results. Work diligently, and with your goal in mind at all times, and your unsightly double chin will fade away.

Nikon 7430 Monarch 8 X 42mm All Terrain Binoculars is a popular Christmas gift in 2008!

I did a lot of research before deciding on Nikon 7430 Monarch 8 X 42mm All Terrain Binoculars. As an experienced photographer, optical quality was my top priority. I originally purchased them for hiking and long range mountain scanning in southern Oregon, and while initially perplexed between the 10X or 8X version; I found the extra sharpness of the 8X resolution negated the need for a 10X magnification, because they rendered so much detail.

With the 8X, I spotted a fire lookout station that I’d never seen before, on a mountain 15 miles out of town. Quite remarkable. Added to that, was the research at Cornell University’s Ornithology Center on the web. Birdwatchers extraordinaire; who called them a steal Monarch ATB Binoculars. I concur. I never thought I’d be so happy paying this price for binoculars, but it was a no brainer.

Tack sharp, lightweight and well worth owning. I like the hard rubber-armor construction. It does not become slippery when wet. They feel solid but light. I am not so nervous about dropping the binoculars as I would be with the Leica or Opticrons. The firm turn-and slide eyecups (like the Lieca) are a huge improvement over the fussy soft foldable rubber eyecups found on many other binoculars.

Nikon Monarch Binoculars are light, bright, work well with eyeglasses I bought these binoculars for a nature trip in the Amazon and I use them in the back yard, on hikes and occasionally at the symphony or opera. My sister, an ornithologist, told me to get the most expensive binoculars I could afford.

To her, binoculars are a professional tool but I really didn’t want to afford a thousand bucks like she was suggesting. She also told me to try out binoculars in low-light environment and to get 8×42 rather than 10×42 because it is easier to find what you are looking for and easier to hold so that the view is not shaking.
