The Big Guide to Improve Microstock Workflow

October 31, 2010

A few times a week I receive questions from microstock photographers who have discovered the picNiche toolbar, wondering about how they can make the whole microstock process better. As an experienced computer user (and coder) there are a lot of things I often take for granted about ‘the microstock workflow’, which others sometimes miss or choose to avoid due to the perceived complexity of moving to a new tool or method….

Absolutely MUST follow stock photography twits

June 11, 2010

When advising microstock contributors running the picNiche toolbar to watch my twitter for updates or announcements, I quite often hear: “twitter is rubbish, I don’t care what so-and-so had for breakfast” or “it’s such a waste of time”, or “it’s just not useful to me”. Well here’s my response 🙂

Twitter is helpful for your photography, important to your business, and sometimes inspirational for the soul. Everyone on this list will not waste your time… they engage, and challenge, share and shine far brighter than the rest of the ‘stars’ in the twitterverse.

They will work hard to change the way you see your craft, your art, and maybe even your life.

If you’re on twitter, and you’re not following any of these stock photographers and associated people, then follow them all below. If you’re not on yet, go and join up, then give it a go. (You can open each one in a new tab/window by holding ctrl or cmd)
