In my previous post I wrote about my desire to join Stocksy as a contributor. You can view this post with this link, including the submission requirements.
Lucky for me, I gathered new content as I was away for two days on a bike trip towards the Italian Alps (120km). In total, I managed to capture just shy of 200 images (and 3 videos). Hopefully you’ve been following my stories on Instagram and if you haven’t my account is @arotenbergphotography – follow me on my adventures!
I’ve painstakingly shortlisted the minimum 25 required images (all from this last trip). I could have dug up old pics but they’re with agencies and I don’t want to go through the hassle of deleting them in case I’m accepted at Stocksy.
The selection below consists of a mixture of what I shoot, which is architecture, general travel, fine art and editorials.
Sport / Leisure
Unfortunately, the images with identifiable people I don’t have a model release (obviously), but as far as I understand if people are far within a frame, it should be OK. In any case, even though Stocksy don’t license editorial work, they asked in the submission questionnaire whether the applicant shoots editorial – strange.
I’m curious…which would you say are your top 3 pics of the above and why?
If you’re considering submitting an application to Stocksy, act quickly, as nobody knows when they’ll close applications!
A Word on Microstockman
I would like to take this opportunity to briefly mention the Microstockman blog, where Tim Hester has kindly showcased my book, the Brutally Honest Guide to Microstock Photography as one of Microstockman’s featured books – check out his review here.
Microstockman is stock all-encompassing, featuring useful tips / reviews on the major Agencies that cater to stock photography, vector illustrations, audio recordings & video footage.
Until next time!
Hey Alex! Thanks for the shout-out to Microstock Man, much appreciated. And all the best on your Stocksy submission, hope it goes well!

After a long wait, I was rejected. No big deal 🙂
