So a little while ago, I decided I'd started selling some of my photos as stock. So far, I've sold 22 photos. And I barely earned a thing selling them if I'm honest, but that's ok - it's already quite neat to me people will pay for my pictures and I don't really need the money anyway (though, more money never hurts now does it?). Besides that, I've not spent a whole lot of time on it yet.
What I do wonder is: who's buying my pictures? The curious thing about stock photography is that people don't need to tell you what they're using your stock for. Hell, you don't even know who's buying. So I've got 22 people / companies using my photos commercially now, and I've got no clue where or how. I've tried using reverse image search, but to no avail. But they're out there. Maybe they're on a website. Maybe they're in some lame powerpoint presentation. Maybe they're somewhere on a big sign next to a highway. I'll never know.
Anyway, I haven't updated my journal in ages, in part because I got annoyed at dA "losing" dozens of my journals, but I guess I'll get back to it, and feature some people I started watching recently.
Number one is from the US with some neat and artsy aviation shots! Her account only has little over 200 views so far, so go on, say hi!
Number two is from the UK who does some excellent car photography! He's already got a Daily Deviation and certainly has plenty of watchers, but that doesn't make his stuff any less cool!
