Further to the recent shocking news that Shutterstock has purchased Pond5, Emeric Le Bars, one of the industry’s leading timelapses creators, asks Tom Crary, Pond5 CEO some brutally-honest questions.
Happy to share with you the interview as posted on Emeric’s YouTube channel:
Thanks for taking this opportunity, Emeric and we, as contributors, hope for the best and expect the worst.
I’m an eccentric guy, currently based in Lisbon, Portugal, on a quest to visit all corners of the world and capture stock images & footage. I’ve devoted eight years to making it as a travel photographer / videographer and freelance writer. I hope to inspire others by showing an unique insight into a fascinating business model.
Most recently I’ve gone all in on submitting book cover images to Arcangel Images. Oh and also recently purchased a DJI Mavic 2s drone and taking full advantage.
I’m proud to have written a book about my adventures which includes tips on making it as a stock travel photographer – Brutally Honest Guide to Microstock Photography
