If I sold enough stock photos, then the cost of the supplies would become a non-issue.

I also love taking photos and new challenges, and this would definitely fall under that category for me.

There's also the facet that any exposure at all I can get, to get my name out there, is a wonderful thing.

It would take me a bit to get set up (I have to order the supplies to photograph) but I think I have a lot to offer, as far as my photography experience and skills go. I would most likely do a "per pic" system, through a private album on Flickr. The pictures would be watermarked with my business name, and they would either stay watermarked with that, or they could be watermarked with the buyer's business name at no cost. (adding a watermark literally takes less than a minute) I probably would not sell them just blank, because that puts it "out there" and then there's nothing to stop people from stealing it or sharing it.

And now I am rambling, so I'll stop. I would like to know if there truly is any interest in me doing these, because if there isn't, and everyone is set on going with someone else, then me ordering the supplies and taking the time to take the shots would just be a waste.

She does great work! I think she would do amazing at this also and we could buy from both, I mean you can never have enough options! I also think always watermarking them would be best bc anyone could take them otherwise and you would never know bc so many people used them. Also I was thinking some customers might become leary if we ALL have the same photos - even if we tried to explain stock photos - if they see 30 people with the same picture when they type their search in etsy - they might think we are crazy lol so even pictures of the same items from different ladies would be awesome! It could take care of that problem! Just my.... 4 cents lol

I agree! Plus each photographer has their own special touch that makes them unique. That's a good point. Maybe the photos can be offered in 2 or 4 different angles so that they are the same product but different for just that reason you mentioned.

What a great idea!!! I would definitely be in! I haven't made the investment in a top of the line camera yet, and don't know when I'll be able to, so I would love to purchase some stock photos. Thanks for recommending this.

I really think that there should be a limit as to how many times they can sell a model pic. I understand that it is their pic and their time, BUT we don't all want to have the same pics....it wouldn't be good for any of our businesses. I guess what I am saying is there should be categories like the web designers do. They have ooak that is only sold once. Then the limited that are sold X amount of times. Finally, there is the pics that can be sold a ton of times. Am I making sense?...lol....sometimes I have the thoughts but not sure if they come out right...lol. Anyway, they could have two different tiers of pics with a certain amount of times for the pics in that group to be sold. Once sold, they would remove it as an option - put it in a gallery or something for samples of work but not for sale. And, the product pics on white are totally different and they could sell sell sell.

I agree with how many times it's been sold. I also agree with buying fromwho you want... It sounds like the other person does alot with editing to do the white background. I do on some of my items... But I like to capture a "unique" photograph even with accessories... And as said before each person has their own style and I 100% agree so different photogs sounds awesome!! I am going to put photos on my FB (the one I put the link up for earlier in this thread) and what ever photos you'd like to buy just message me!! I took more today of the AR flowers and some other things.... It's all about being easy peasy!!

So far I've worked up glitter clippies on white background. I'm working on gathering more supplies to get those photos going too. White won't be my only option though, I've got some other ideas up my sleeve.
