Local Stock

Local Stock, a stock photo library specialising in stock images from in and around the UK, is giving photographers the chance to earn 100% commissions from their photos. However, this offer only runs until 1 July 2012 as Local Stock will begin taking commissions on all photographer sign-ups joining on or after this date.

To take advantage of this offer, photographers need to sign up for an account, pay the one-off, life-time membership fee of £36.00 and then they are free to start uploading images of the UK to the stock site.

Local Stock contributors will:
  • Retain all copyright and editorial control of your images.
  • Receive personal customer support and promotional exposure.
  • Earn 100% of each sale (less Paypal fee).
  • Receive a bio page and website link to your own site.
  • Get access to Local Stock's 'find a photographer' database and featured photographer section.
For more information and to sign up, visit Local Stock's website.

If you check their website the one off fee of £36 is only for the first 1,000 signing up with no mention of a time limit of 1st July or the fact that they take commission on sales after that date, so I think the write-up here gives the wrong impression of what service provide !

In addition, I never recall having to pay a fee, even if a one time "life time" when I used to submit my transparencies to libraries 20+ years ago. Sad

Hi JJGEE,

Thanks for your comments. The offer literally went 'live' yesterday and as you posted your comments, the content was being updated. As you will now see the website fully reflects the offer outlined in the article. Just to be clear - only sign-ups joining after 1st July 2012 will be subject to commission fees. All members signing up from inception to the offer closing date will, and indeed have been, enjoying 100% commission on their photo sales. This model has allowed us to build up our ever increasing photo base and indeed has proved very popular with our current contributors.
I appreciate that you may not have encountered this type of model before, however it has proved successful for our contributors, we have also received excellent buyer feedback with regard to the type of library we are building and are now starting to see increased photo sales month on month which ultimately is our aim. Smile
Regards
Brian

I've yet to see anyone buy one of my images and I have them on several sites, so it's cost me nothing. Yet I pay this lot £36 and still no sales. And no, my images are not that bad, but when these sites have hundreds of thousands of images, what chance have you got selling yours!

I agree with puertouk ive had jusa few photos on there from when they started and offered the same deal(SO glad i didnt have to pay) YET to date NOT SOLD a single pic,and dont know anyone who has. But if you think say three quaters of the registered photographers paid the £36 then thats a nice few quid for DIDLY SQUAT really.
They seem very similar to another site in www.photostockbritain.com
By all means join for free and save yourself the LOSS of £36.

If they can sell images they don't need a £36 joining fee, there are plenty of agencies around that do not charge a penny to join so beware people just sounds like a rip off.

I was responsible for many people joining this company and I use the word company with distaste! I have several hundred photos on the site but have only sold one for £7.00, I do think the owners bought this because I was starting to ask questions, no one I know on the site has ever sold a photo, I have the top viewed photo but still only the one sale, I do think this company is scamming people, if any one has sold anything please let us know, on my own website I sell at least 10 to 15 photos a month.
