Have you looked at what others have done?
Have you asked the designers (i.e. the purchasers) what they want?
Have you looked at cost vs return - and how do you know the latter?

Stock images have changed huge over the last 2 years.... Getty and others that I have portfolios on - have each "crashed" in sales for me, as huge companies now regularly provide 10s of thousands of images into their central databases of millions of images to choose from... Shutter stock now 88 million.

Sure this site is different.. you have to identify why it's different and how this difference is able to better provide for the current and future customers. If the single expertise is NZ people... then let's all chase that richness for the designers.. if it's NZ fauna or flora.. or architecture or sport or cultural icons... whatever - let your photographers help you build this richness. If your identify what the designers want.. we will chase the images.

I have noticed the trend to more casual lifestyle images in mags and especially web sites e.g. from cell phones - weird angles and lighting and blurs etc If we/ you insist on all high quality traditional images - maybe we will be by-passed .

Maybe a new section of this casual image section would be worth a try - see what the designers want...

You describe well the review journey we are embarking on (while still making a few tweeks to the current site). Great insights. The stock world never stands still.

cheers for now the chillys
