Such a shame that a voice for the photographers working in the business of providing stock images is closing.Sadly as a former member, the differenting opinions and the dramatic change in the business over the years has finally taken it's toll. The SAA attempted to be a voice to address the concerns faced by those of us who attempt to make a living providing stock images.
From the Bristish Journal of Photography:
In an open letter to the photographic community, five of Stock Artist Alliance's former directors state that "the last few years have seen dramatic and wrenching changes in the stock photography industry. Photographers' and agencies' traditional business models are under tremendous competitive pressures."
