Hmm with the number if stock photo sites around,the problem is that this idea might not take off.There muz be something to attract ppl to the site.Setting up a local site is a nice idea but muz have ways to attract ppl to come to your site instead of visiting the already established sites:think:
How successful you are will largely depends on how proactive you are. If you're thinking of uploading your favourite images hoping they will sell, then you probably will not earn much. You have to understand what the buyers need and provide whats needed accordingly. Which is why it would be a good idea to study the trends e.g. festive seasons, sports, etc. Before you upload your images, make it a point to consider what they can be used for. Shuttlestock is prety strict for newcomers. If your images are rejected initially(3 times I think), then you won't be able to upload anymore for a long period of time.

You really want the 1$ on a cheque and pay 50S$ fee to put it on your bank account ?
At least, photographer dun have to pay a fee to put cheque into his bank account. :bsmilie:
but why not join istockphoto or dreamstime where its free and u still earn? mine is my signature below and its earning, slowly it might be, but surely. i do post on istock too, with 51 uplaods as compared to dreamstime 189 uploads, my istock made more sales. One picture sold repeatedly which explainswhy.
