    I'm curious if anyone uses a still photo broker or agency similar to a video broker, or if such a thing exists outside of Getty. Mainly interested in someone who handles client requests, licensing/prints and billing. I don't get a lot of these, but with working full time I'm never able to respond timely to the typical back-and-forth of inquiries.

    Just doesn't seem to be much of a photo market anymore unless you get something very unique

    I am on Shutterstock, and make a couple hundred bucks a year on it. Also I'm on Alamy, and I often make nothing but they did sell some of my photos (from a stuck roller coaster in Coney Island) to a paper in England and got me a couple hundred bucks...

    I tried selling NYC related prints at various outlets last year and holiday season but have thrown in the towel on that now.

    I do have my first ever solo photo show opening next week, though :)

    I do decent selling to local papers where scene took place. Not what you're looking for, I realize. But it adds up. Takes 10 minutes to give them a story to go with it. Surprisingly I've never been told no. Pretty easy sales.
