One of the worlds most successful stock photographers Yuri Arcurs has created his own portal for customers to buy stock photography – PeopleImages.com
They say: Gone are the days of low commission sales and limited exposure. Yuri Arcurs has created his own stock image platform, PeopleImages.com, to enhance services offered to consumers. Over the past few years, agencies have made it somewhat impossible to profit from selling images online. PeopleImages.com is a reply to stock agencies dropping commission rates to an all-time low of 15%.
Yuri says: “Very few people that buy images know how small a percentage of the actual sales price the artists receive. It’s a shame, because the small artists have a hard enough time already.”
The agency is also offering services such as Custom retouching, image exclusivity options and the ability to request more images of a specific model or particular style.
