Does anyone here use a stock photo agency to sell your pictures? If so, which do you use and what are your experiences?

The elimination of the mirror has introduced a new concept into the interchangeable lens digital camera market - compactness (kind of like what happened when Oscar Barnack created the Leica).

I sell stock with 4 different agencies. When comes to content it really depends what you shoot and how your photos stack up against the best and most popular images/videos. I would suggest you make a research and compare what you can offer against their top contributors ... this will give you an idea where to start. In addition, success in stock market depends on many factors. Some photographers make decent sales with just few hundreds photos but 95% of them are top notch content. Others rely on quantity with a hit and pray logic.
