I can stock indeed! and maybe you can!

I’m hoping this contest will allow me to encourage other males to start up stock accounts!

I dont know why there is a lack of male stock but there just is!

It could be down to many reasons eg camera shyness/lack of confidence? who knows :O

But the stock/photo manipulators need more! And you guys can help!

From the moment i started my stock account ive gotten alot of support! encouraging me to keep on submitting and contributing to the stock community, and some were against it, but don't let anything discourage you!

It’s also been said that a lot of male stock, not all, lacks variation so we need fresh ideas from fresh stockers!

So guys, try it out, no harm!

I’m opening this up to females too! It seems like a fun idea! :lol:


I’m looking for you artists, photographers behind the lens!, Photo manipulators, Fractal artists ANY SORT! Even stockers to join in!

The idea is that you come up with a series of 4-5 stock images using yourselves as the subject!

BUT the theme has to be really interesting, innovative and creative!

This is to give you guys the chance to be stockers  and try it out and who knows, you might like it and continue!

The prizes are as follows, more may come later!

I'm a male stockist.

Sadly, I don't get as much time to do actual male stock as often as I'd like. I still do it though, so there are some guys out there doin it!

Hrm... well, I have been trying to wrangle my husband for more stock photos, because he just loves doing it, he just can't take the pictures ^^; He doesn't know how to work the camera :noes:

Is that acceptable, if I wind up taking the pictures, but he just does the work? :giggle:

lol :giggle: that would be fine! :#1:
