Apart from my own blatant pitch for my personal photography at Alamy, All Things Photography is now working with many of the smaller stock photography agencies. Whether you are buying stock photography as a designer, agency or for a full blown ad campaign, or looking for fine art poster prints, we have after much consideration decided to jump on board with Microstock agencies…why?
For a start, the image quality from most contributors is amazing with much thought and skill used when producing the images. The standards are much higher than in the beginning and the prices are extremely competitive.
It is fast becoming one of the most used areas on the web today for buying stock photography and brings affordable, quality stock photography to the masses. This has to be due to the incredible talent, dedication and diversity of its current contributing photographers from all over the world, from all walks of life and from the excellent pricing structure they have incorporated.
Even though I am a stock photographer, I am still buying stock photography myself for projects and products that I produce. Sometimes it just isn’t viable, cost-effective or even possible for me to take certain images that I need so when microstock brought affordable, high resolution and high quality stock photography to the masses, I jumped in with both feet.
I have bought stock images on both a “per image” basis and also as a subscription customer. It is great to have the option of either depending on how many images you need at any given time.
So why not try a new approach to buying stock photography, with totally fresh, bright, bold and punchy images for your campaign?
