Stock photo blindness

Stock photo blindness | a photographer's life | Scoop.it
Stock photos and stock agencies have a much bigger problem than declining usage fees. They just don’t work anymore. In the advertising web space, there is an expression that defines the fact that people do not click on advertising anymore.

"There is no doubt that what is happening to stock photography will happen to Instagram in a few years, once the iconic still gets over used by the corporate world. But for now, those who have mastered it have the best chance to do much better than any stock photo professional."

The new Julia Margaret Cameron show at the Metropolitan Museum is everything Cameron herself was not: small, orderly, and understated. Yet it’s far from being a trifle.

The Cash Cow of Photography - Disphotic

The Cash Cow of Photography - Disphotic | a photographer's life | Scoop.it

I’ve been working for a while on compiling a list of photography grants, competitions and festivals that don’t charge or only charge small amounts for submissions.

Sander de Wilde's insight:

Exactly what I feel all the time. It's already damned difficult to find all these grants, and competitions, find the time to enter, and now you also have to find the money to enter. Even known sites like lensculture etc. Only photographers with time and money can make an entry and win. Is that fair? I don't know a lot of photographers with any of these!-)

"I’ve also come to question more and more those situations where photographers are essentially expected to pay for access, or to pay someone to do their job. Portfolio reviews seem to me the most obvious and troubling example of this, a situation where we pay to jump the queue and go and see an editor or a curator who might be able to help us with work. In participating in this we are, in effect, paying a premium just to talk to a person whose job it already is to look at photography."

Mario Pires's curator insight, May 13, 2014 11:32 AM

"The old idea that photography should just show things as they are still holds sway to a great extent in the documentary community, and to be sure it still makes perfect sense in certain circumstances just to show. But showing the surface of something extremely complex often isn’t a very effective way to get us to understand it, because often we simply end up repeating what we already know, or think we know."

Crowdfunding platform Emphas.is goes insolvent amid internal conflicts - British Journal of Photography | a photographer's life | Scoop.it

A bold experiment to bring new capital in photojournalism has ended in failure and legal imbroglio when Emphas.is, a crowdfunding platform launched in 2011, went insolvent this summer after having accumulated more than €300,000 in debts. Olivier Laurent finds out what went wrong.
