06 Jan 2011 The Veer PhotoOp Content is Live
The Veer PhotoOp content is now live on the site along with the behind-the-scenes page with the video (also embedded below) shot during the event and biographies of the nine participating photographers. The video gives an insight into the ideas and intentions behind the event and shows the photographers on location shooting.
The PhotoOp Photos
You can see all the PhotoOp photos by following this link, or just include PhotoOp1 as a keyword in any search. There’s also a show-reel of the images with galleries of the collection here. In total there were almost 7,000 images created during the event. Some were considered by the Veer editors as worthy of higher pricing. Of the 720 images of mine that were selected, 32% were priced at midstock levels. I presume the percentage was higher for the other photographers.
The content came online in November boosting my portfolio from 43 to 760 photos. There was a proportional jump in revenue that doesn’t place Veer among my top earning agencies, but certainly shows promise given December is a slow month for stock photo sales. After Veer did all the production and all the editing, I’m not about to complain!
Tyler Olson has a much bigger portfolio so his PhotoOp images only account for 20% of his total portfolio. He’s also optimistic about his future earnings from the content given their performance in December.
Shawn Haskell, the Veer Technical Specialist who did all the retouching for the entire collection, has posted a fun time-lapse video of the retouching done to some of the photos.
PhotoOp Buenos Aires?
There’s a rumor going around that there’ll be another PhotoOp event held this year, but that this time it will be in Buenos Aires, Argentina – which happens to be my home town. I have no idea how this rumor got started but Veer management remain suspiciously tight-lipped about it.
