Re: Photographers Direct (Stock Agency)

It's OK but you'll be lucky to sell anything through them. I've been on their list for a couple of years and only once have they asked for subject matter that I could provide. And then they chose someone else's.

No harm in trying though.

Re: Photographers Direct (Stock Agency)

One for the Canon boys & girls from said site :-

Date : 29th April 2008
Deadline : 30th April 2008
Request No.7610
Request Title: TUTORIAL IMAGES FROM CANON D-SLR
Request:
We're looking for quality images taken on a Canon D-SLR to be used in the tutorial section of PhotoPlus magazine. Pictures MUST be taken on Canon digital SLR and you must be able to supply an un-processed RAW file.

A low-res version of the image will be included on the cover mounted disc that accompanies the magazine to be used as a source file. Our readers are encouraged to follow the tutorials and video lessons using these images.

Images will be altered using Photoshop or ACR, however the emphasis is on making a good picture better rather than salvaging a bad one, so we require excellent compositions.
- Colour images ONLY

Format : either landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical)
Use : editorial
Budget
Inside, 1/4 page : UK£75.00
Notes on Budget : Tutorial images will run as 1/4 page and also be supplied as a low res source file on the cover mounted disc. They will be manipulated in the tutorials.

Buyer Rating : (no rating)
Country : United Kingdom

Re: Photographers Direct (Stock Agency)

Interesting to see that they feel the need to explain the difference between landscape and portrait orientation.

Bit of an insult to Canon users IMO.

Re: Photographers Direct (Stock Agency)

I don't see it that way...more of them being used to and knowing that people don't follow instructions and the need to emphasise that point?

Re: Photographers Direct (Stock Agency)

I'm with Steve on that one Graham, it's amazing how many people don't take 30 seconds to read simple instructions like that. I have met several members of camera clubs (so presumably have a fair interest in pictires) who have asked me when giving tutorials and things, 'Wait a sec, which way is landscape again?...'

I guess like most things, when you're very familiar with something it is easy to forget that newcomers are not as au fe with things. I have learnt this from experience and so try to use minimal technical language during my talks at clubs and when I do use camera jargon, I always explain the words, no matter how simple they are.

After all, there might be some Nikon users around....

OH HAHAHA Rob , funny guy you are.

Just to add insult to injury, and by way of a pathetic sort of comeback, it's "au fait"

Im with them and have sold a fair few images through them. All of which were submitted to specific requests rather than buyers searching for images though.
