Default Make Money for Adam

Hello, I'm pretty sure that there were already opinions about the following: when searching the web I found a website called <a href="http://www.bildagentur-hamburg.com" target="_blank">&quot;Photo Agency
Hamburg&quot;</a> (only in German :( ). The Photo Professionals sell the pictures on that site to everyone who is interested. When I surfed through the site I found that many pictures that I see here are a lot better than the picture on that commercial site taken by Photo Pros. BTW when searching for commercial photo sites, I found many with the same effect.

So here is the point: Can't there be a way that Adam can sell the pictures here (best way I think is sending the file via e-mail). What are your thoughts ? The website costs money, so let some money come back :) Yours, Jan

you mean like transforming this site into an photo agency..
It wouldn't be a bad idea...
What is Adam's idea about this?
Is it possible to do.
Don't forget that on this site a lot of pictures are manipulated...
It could be a drawback for a photo agency.

I would guess that agencies would want the 'full size' image rather than the 800pixel max that is posted here. As long as people retain the original, probably as TIF, it could be workable.
What are we talking about here? Adam and Trekearth effectively acting as agent and receiving a percentage of the sale price? I would certainly be happy to consider such as setup if anybody wanted to buy anything I had produced :-)
If it helps offset some of Adam's costs, and we make a bit at the same time, we would all be winners.

I am not sure about that?..
but in any case Adam can decide what he wants to do with the site...
It's not a bad idea, like I already said.

Funny but I was thinking along these lines before I saw this thread. What Adam has going for him on this site is a way to find pics of specifi places all over the world - you want Essauoira, you come to Trekearth and you find a dozon views of Essauoira.

The idea could work if any sales were split between Adam and the photogrpaher - stock agencies normally take about 30%.

It's probably not a problem that the images are digital. I understant that an increasing percentage of stock images sold are now digital.

Iamges can be sold for 2 uses - web-use and print media (print media itself is further subdivided). For web-use, 72 dpi is fine. For print media you might need 250 to 300 dpi. Whether jpg vs tiff or other is an issue depends on what the end use might be.

Yes, I think there's a possiblity here. If Adam wld like to email me I'll suggest a contact for him to follow up.

I just wonder, if there is any demand for photos? does anybody buy pictures? there is so many photographers and photos that I can't imagine, why anybody would like to buy my picture...
