The Questions I Wrestle With As A Stock Photographer

A huge Summo wrestler bear hugs a businessman in an office setting as a metaphor for competition and mismatches in the business world.

In business, as in life, we all constantly wrestle with questions the answers of which will lead us to our future.

How will future licensors of photography find photos to license?

Will they license images through agencies or directly from content creators?

What kind of pictures will they be licensing?

How can I best get my photography in front of those who both need to license photos and are willing to pay reasonable fees?

Is my time better spent creating new images, or getting existing images seen? What is the right balance in that mix?

What kinds of images are needed in the market place that I enjoy making?

These are the questions I wrestle with.
