I would think you'd need a pretty exclusive niche to rise above the competition.

That is actually been the case for over 10 years and why some of us who have a gold mine of this type of image never even set foot near the likes of garbage-heap Getty.

Stock is no different than any other kind of photography these days in that you have to rise above it all, keep it out of sight of competitors by using a private web presence and know your market.

But microstock?....man...that trash was dead before it was born. Niche rights managed stock still adds up to tens of thousands a year for me...
