I'm no Anton Corbijn, but from time to time I snap a damn fine photo. And now you're telling me I can get paid for them? Bitchin.

So wait, a non-corporate stock phtography agency? Anyone can join? Sweet!

If you're serious about do-it-yourself stock photography, you might like to check out ozimages, as well. Just don't expect riches from any of these agencies - stock photography is a competitive business.

I love the idea, but wonder what advantage it offers buyers. Seems like they would have to sift through a lot more chaff to find what they want.

As a buyer... I'm used to sifting through a lot of chaff. I'm just happy to see more royalty-free work coming on-line.

In the late 70's, early 80's, the English music paper N.M.E., now gone to pot, was my weekly Thursday fix. It had all the best writers(Julie Burchill, Paul Morley, etc.)and those great Anton Corbijn b+w photographs. Bands like Echo and the Bunnymen stalked him to do their album covers. Then he disappeared. Looking over the link I happily found he got better after he left the music press. I also remember, athensldt, how shite he was when he started - I was a subscriber from age 10(1965)to age 40(1995). So I would definitely encourage you to stay on course. I don't know what age Robert Frank was when he photographed "The Americans" but he was older than I am now and his images are part of our lives...
