PICTURE FEE VS. COST TO FIND THE PICTURE






Freelance photo researchers and staff photo editors are discovering that the time spent searching for and acquiring a hard-to-locate images may sometimes be more costly than the cost of the picture itself.

Microstock photos are inexpensive, but going to microstock can be a trap to picture acquisition professionals. For the photo researcher attempting to find that “just right” photo through the microstock route, the process often requires them to sift through scores of images, most of which are generic standards, without the special details of content that the photobuyer needs. It also doesn’t help that the buyer is not able to communicate directly with the photographer. It can be a frustrating and expensive time- consuming procedure for the photobuyer.

For this reason, more and more photobuyers and photo researchers are finding that thanks to the Internet they can deal with individual stock photographers who already specialize in the subject matter the researcher is looking for. This process is now fast and easy and is proving less costly, time-wise, than taking on the arduous search of a microstock portal to locate an “on-target” image. And with direct communication .
with the photographer, buyers can acquire a specific image that more effectively complements this project.

There are several reasons for this.


1.)
New text search innovations on the Internet (Google, Yahoo, Bing) make it much easier to speedily discover (through a multiple keyword search) which individual stock photographer or photographers have photos of the subject matter they are seeking.
2.) Independent stock photographers have now mastered keywording techniques that effectively describe the photos they have available.
3.) These photographers have websites tailored and SEO-ready (Google finds them easy for page 1 results) for each of their stock photo subject-matter specialties. They can provide buyers with a deep picture selection of the topic, with LightBox presentations, hi-res 24/7, and overnight delivery worldwide.
4.) Because the photographer specializes, he/she is often an expert on the subject and can be responsive to the photobuyer’s needs, as well as give consulting help.

It stands to reason more and more photobuyers are using Google and other search engines to locate and purchase those hard-to-find photos quickly, and often for less overall cost than the full cost of searching the microstock sites.

To check out the search system to find specific photographers for a specific subject area, type in a multiple keyword selection describing a sample photo to find, into the Google search bar, then put a colon, and then the word photosourcebank. If a PhotoSourceBANK member has your selection, his/her name and contact details will appear on your screen.
