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.

If you want links to the website, please visit http://www.phildate.com.sg and go to LINKS, you will find them all there.

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.
