Do editorial photos sell? And at what ratio to commercial?

I have about 1200 photos on line at DT and practically all are for advertisement. But when I click on contributors portfolios, I see many editorial images. I just got back from a trip to France. Do any images of say, a prespective shot of the Arc de Triomphe with the Champs Elysees on both sides sell? What is the ratio of editorial to commercial sales on DT? Maybe I've been ignoring photos because I can't get 250 model releases or a property release to the Empire State building!Any thoughts or ideas?... continue reading

Take Warning Signs Seriously

Living on 55 acres banking a scenic river, with a 270 degree view of a mountain range, we get all kinds of people on our property.Rafters systematically pull up and cut across our pasture to get to the county road, dropping their popped rafts/tubes/floaties/beer bottles and more on our riverbank - and yes, taking the needed bathroom break in the grass (hello, go in the river).Drivers who ignore No Trespassing signs, unhook the gate, shoot out the lock, drive over the fence, whatever... continue reading

OF EDITORIAL PICS

Previously, I found it very hard to capture a decent pic specifically meant for RF sale. No logos, business signs, faces, etc. (well, you know the drill) and to obtain model/ property releases is totally out of question.Being an outdoor photographer, it was frustrating sometimes since these kind of pictures will never be approved for the RF section.Case in point : Geneva, Switzerland cityscape. Since the majority of the buildings here have some brand name signs on its top, submitting... continue reading

Really look at the details

When it comes down to trademarks it is really important to look at the details. I found out just how much detail recently on a submission where a patent number, barely visible but still there, held things up.I never noticed it until I really got zoomed in on the image and there it was. little things like this will make or break a stock image. Two solutions are available for this problem.If it's a generic enough item in the photo then remove any identifying symbols, logo's, numbers, letters,... continue reading
