Why don't increase the level of subscription?

I think that the price of selling in DT should be reviewed by management. For example, my last 20 picture sold just 4 are with credits and 16 (!!) are with subscriptions at 0.42$ eachI can comprehend that we earn on volume and not on the single picture sold, but I think that most of use of these picture are for blog or internet so people buy just small size.The cost and the the effort to shot original picture (and the effort also to improve the skills in PS for example) have a value more... continue reading

Spy from the mind of Antonio Prohías and of course the "One Day..." strips of Don Martin.Now that my son is a twelve, he's discovered Mad Magazine and while flipping through the June 2012 issue I noticed an editors note that said they had forgotten to credit the photos in the previous issue in an article called "Banana Republican" which featured Photoshopped images by Scott... continue reading
