19 Dec 2007 StockXpert – Branded Free Stuff

StockXpert t-shirt

It reads “I am Xpert”! When I wear this t-shirt in public, I’m occasionally asked in what field I am an expert. Many joke that it’s not spelling! People can be funny.

StockXpert give t-shirts to competition winners, staff representing the company at exhibitions, and people who make not-so-subtle hints about their t-shirt size to said staff over dinner! That’s how the first item in the Branded Free Stuff series came about.

This photo was taken at Cradle Mountain, Australia. My wife and I are touring around the Australian island state of Tasmania for a week with my folks. There’s nothing like travel for stock photo opportunities, and there’s nothing like stock photography for travel.

I look a little mean in the photo and it’s not too easy to read the text, but at least it shows the StockXpert t-shirt getting around and in good use.

StockXpert will soon be accepting footage for sale alongside photos. The system is already in development and they expect to be making an announcement shortly. They’re offering a high 40% commission to contributors for all footage sales, with prices ranging from $10 to $50. You can email for more information and send in samples for early admission.

      The only Tasmanian Devils we saw were roadkill unfortunately. They’re not too pesky when they meet a vehicle at 100km/h!

        Oh no! They’re on the verge of being declared an endangered species, aren’t they?

      John, you’ll get a lot of details about what footage they’re after on their forum announcement. Obviously, all the information that’s in the Q&A will be nicely presented on a single page when they launch the service, but for now, you need to scroll through the forum.
