    But hey, they sponsored the trip! there's no free lunch in this world. Here, just have to be glad the company doesn't take away your lunches.

    I sell my photos through different microstock agencies. Many of these have sprung up in the last year as direct (but much cheaper) competitors to the old-fashioned stock houses such as Getty, Corbis and Alamy. They offer photos for sale at bargain prices, for which the photogrpaher will get a certain commission (different sites, different commissions).

    The arguments for and against this new-style of stock photography are many. For me, it would take me years to get a portfolio together to submit to Getty. In fact Getty just bought the largest and oldest microstock site, iStockphoto, for $50m as a way of breaking into this profitable market itself.

    Through the microstock industry, I have found an avenue that allows me to make a decent income each month. if you want to know what 'decent' means, then PM me - I don't want to shock too many people here, who have already expressed their doubt and dismay at this industry. But I'm talking 000s not 00s.

    I agree. Coming from the stock photography industry, I do know of photographers who make millions a year. HOWEVER, do not take stock for granted as it can be very heavy upfront investment UNLESS you are so good that the agency pays you to shoot.

    Just sharing...

    I think you are nit-picking - of course if people express an interest in making money from photography I am going to try and get their referrals. However, there were no direct links on CS so I think your comment is uncalled for. I have given some useful advice (on the thread and through PM) and therefore a link to my own website is fully justified - this is not spam and I don't need a slap on the wrists from anyone here thank you.

    I'm not here to nit-pick on you neither do I wish to argue the matter further. If you feel that way I apologise and I'll like to leave it at that. Cheers and no bad feelings.
