Anyone got any links for companies that buy images for use on postcards?
Search for 'Stock' Photos
Buy the 2006 Photographer's Market.
this one? [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0907297579/026-8374934-9932446?v=glance&n=266239&s=books&v=glance"]http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0907297579/026-8374934-9932446?v=glance&n=266239&s=books&v=glance[/ame]
I'm thinking I'm in the UK maybe the top one? let me know cheers
I have the latter one, but I'm in the U.S. I don't know what would be best for you. You can still sell photos to the U.S. market I'm sure. Get em both.
yeah I have already ordered the bottom one and will oreder the top one, for 10 quid might aswell
The bottom one, which I have, is great because it not only gives all the contact info of the magazines, but it also has feature articles on established photogs and how they broke in, as well as how to prepare your portoflio, and intro letter.
I was think some of these maybe good on postcards
do you think these would be good for stock photo sites? I know nothing about how they work and which is the best so any advice from you experts would be most welcome!
both books on order now ;-)
ANYTHING that has a pic of an identifiable person in it will require a model release unless it is editorial. I don't know how you want to start out, but there are several ways to break in. There is a fantastic forum that might be of interest to you and how the stock side of things work. Thought geared to Microstock, there are several threads about the biggies like Getty, Corbis and Alamy. http://www.microstockgroup.com/forum/ At the moment I am getting ready to ship my first CD submission to Alamy in hopes of getting on with them.
Yes, the 2009 photographer's market book is out and it is a great resource for photographers looking for outlets to sell their work. I highly recommend it.

Theres a new site called gonogging.com that sells users photos. The prices are pretty good, they might have some photos for your postcards.
That's really up to the publisher, but images are more sellable with a model release.
