The discussion on image collections last week included a suggestion from Fatsprat that mychillybin provide some information on images for which there is high demand and low stock.

mychillybin undertook to provide this week some initial detail on this, along with more extensive detail thereafter.

The initial brief analysis has produced the following list of 10 frequently searched terms for which there is (in relative terms) a low stock library holding. These are superb subjects for additional images for the library.

rugby
Maori
caravan
tui
bach
bbq
camping
school
family
community

Some judgement about these terms is clearly needed, as to what type of images are sought. One way to get some feel for this is to search the term on the home page, after setting the options to Most Downloads sequence, which will show the image that have sold previously which include this term as a keyword.

cheers for now

Yes, thank you, team for this helpful list. Things like this list are great to tuck into our memory banks for when sorting back through old images and when out shooting.

I'm sure I must have some existing images that would fit the bill, at least for editorial use... now where might they be...

Hope everyone's keeping their fingers and toes warm as the autumn nights head rapidly toward winter ones. Big Grin

Further analysis on image supply and demand has recently been completed. Further work is still planned, but in the interim here a further update ...

Sought after images (existing stock is low versus demand):

Maori
family
business
farmer (must be farmer, not farm)
enjoy
windy
rugby
Hamilton
police
classroom
grandparent
socialising

and these additional subjects from the previous list (and not in the above list)

caravan
tui
bach
bbq
camping
school
community

Similarly, the images least needed, have as primary subject;

beach
coast
coastline
bush
sunset
sunrise

Cheers for now

In regards to the above list regarding Hamilton, what type of photos for Hamilton are sought ? i.e. landmarks, Hamilton Gardens, Waikato River, sights around Hamilton etc.

Cheers,
Mark

Well the first 7 images (across B4 down) here all have Hamilton as a keyword and have sold 1 or more times. Other customers may have been to site and searched Hamilton and gone away without what they are looking for.

Our guess is anything that is iconic Hamilton preferably (2 icons in 1 image if possible) e.g. the main shopping street (perhaps street sign in focus and street beyond with blurred people) - by day, dusk and night. Also a general scene that included the new mega retail area out of town some with signage readable, some without. Any notable historic buildings in context, stadium in recognizable composition with people (moving blurred is fine), foggy rural roads or the historic bridge in fog with blurred cars going by, etc

Hi MCB team.

A couple of things -

...is there a new list available?

...is it possible to "sticky" a "needed image" topic to the top of the list so it's easily accessible for photographers.

Thanks,
Belinda
