I posted a little series of pics to Flickr recently and they are getting a surprising amount of traffic. The pictures are a short series I took while out at Long Beach, Washington while checking out the International Kite Flying Contest / Festival.  This old guy had at least one kite attached to his belt and another one or two in his hands.  He was totally into what he was doing.

Evostock – Turning the Stock Image Business Upside Down.

A collective of professional stock artists is turning the status quo on its head by creating and building a new business model for stock image distribution that better benefits image creators.  Many artists are saying goodbye to Getty Images and Corbis and are looking for better more profitable and sustainable ways to market, distribute, and license their creative work to customers. 

 Evostock, a Virtual Agency created on Photoshelter technology plans to build its virtual image collection and number of members to a critical mass.  Once that critical mass is reached they intend to leverage those numbers in the marketplace to completely bypass the need for the expensive and outdated stock agency system which has dominated artists and the industry at large in the past.

Tim McGuire, a professional stock photographer based in Seattle, Washington is the Virtual Agencies Founder and Administrator.  Tim say’s “I couldn’t see a viable business for me going forward with the big agencies who keep on taking more and more of the revenue from my work and charging their customers less and less.  My expenses weren’t going down so I started looking for a way to remove the middleman from the equation.  Evostock is what I came up with.”

For more info on joining Evostock go to www.Evostock.org where you can find several downloadable documents including a 16 page pdf outlining the organization and vision Tim McGuire has for the future of this entity.
