October already… Wow, does time fly. Lot’s of changes in my life over the past few months.
First, I’ve purchased a lot of new equipment, including a new camera. I’ll be posting reviews. I sold my T2i and was going to buy a T3i, but I ran across an amazing deal on the T4i that I couldn’t pass up. I also “downgraded” my tripod and picked up a new track dolly and other various gadgets.
My “day job” running my business has grown incredibly fast and has me working 60 to 70 hours a week, so there’s not much time for shooting stock. But I do manage a few shots here and there.
Things with Pond5 aren’t any better. Sales are still pretty dismal there and still not much in the way of communication. However, things have been AMAZING at Shutterstock. After ingesting over 1,000 new footage files my sales have more than tripled and consistently for the past few months. They are really going after the stock footage market hard.
