04 Sep 2008 Winners of the Ask a Microstock Superstar Competition

Winning, Andres RodriguezThanks to everybody who submitted questions for the Ask a Microstock Superstar competition. There were some very smart questions indeed. The winners have all been contacted and those attending Photoplus 2008 will shortly receive their Gold Pass and Microstock Superstars session ticket directly from PDN.

The winning questions:

Dan Richardson: If you had to start over again, knowing what you know now, and with the Microstock sites available now, which ones would you start with and why?

Matthew Botos: What aspects of microstock photographer do you find most personally satisfying?

Karen Keczmerski: Should photographers consider using an alias like “Yuri Arcurs”?

Ann Parry: Would you advise dedicated stock contributors to go microstock, macrostock or both?

Special Mentions:

Matt Antonino who can’t make the conference: What is the biggest mistake you have made?

Jim Pickerell who already has his ticket: See list of 15 submitted questions

The Real Prize

How often do you get to speak personally to three superstars of your profession? In this seminar, three of the world’s top microstock contributors will share their success stories and answer questions from the audience (and me!). The winners of this competition now have free tickets, but the real prize is being there to learn from the masters.

Tickets are on sale now for the expo and this seminar via the PhotoPlus Expo website. I’ll be available to chat after the seminar, so if you’re there come and introduce yourself to me. I look forward to meeting as many fellow microstock enthusiasts as possible.

    There are some excellent questions here, and I look forward to hearing the answers. The link on my name, however, points to pics taken by some other dude. Lee, feel free to look up drichpi on Flickr to get some of my images. I’ve just started posting there, so there are not a lot of images on the site.

    Thanks again for the opportunity!

      Sorry about that Dan. Who would have thought there’d be more than one photographer named Dan Richardson! 😉 I’ve updated the link to point to your Flickr photostream.

    I’M SO EXCITED! For others at the NYC PDN PhotoPlus Expo 2008, I’ll be the scrawny blond (toting the Nikon) dancing for joy – can’t wait to see everyone there!
