No longer on Shutterstock

Like many creatives and content creators, my photo’s and footage can no longer be found at Shutterstock. I have disabled my portfolio here out of protest. Shutterstock slashed royalties by about 73% in the middle of a pandemic on June 1. This has a massif negative impact on our income and is really offensive. For example, the Matterhorn sunrise photo on this site deserves far more than a minimum of 10 cents (yes, you read it correctly: $0.10!) and is therefore no longer available at Shutterstock.

So for all the customers, if you are looking to buy stock photo’s, please go to AdobeStock. They do respect and value their contributors, and have decent royalty rates. You can find my portfolio on AdobeStock under ‘Licensing’ if you want to take a look, or follow this link:  https://stock.adobe.com/nl/contributor/201639707/sanderstock
