MaraDamian, this couldn't be more beautiful... Is this in Tahoe?
You're an amazing photographer and have a great collection. You need to join Gnarly Sunset and share all of your sunsets and sunrises with the world! Your photos could be big sellers.
It's free to join, takes just a few minutes to upload photos, and I'll work and spend money to drive you sales. We are a team of experienced internet marketers who have driven almost $10 million in revenue on our ventures in the last year online; your commission could be substantial.
Fair enough, I won't pressure you. Another DeviantArt member asked about the 15% commission the other day. I'll copy my reply below in case you are interested. Hope you join one day... Best, Billy
Thanks for your reply. I appreciate you bringing up this concern. Please don't think of it in terms of Gnarly Sunset takes 85%, the photographers get 15%... that couldn't be farther from the truth.
Keep an open mind while reading the explanation, because you'll see it's fair and advantageous to photographers...
Thinking in terms of where 100% of the sale price goes, the breakdown will be something like this: 15% - Uploading Photographer 5% - Credit Card Fees 5% - Hosting, Site Maintenance 30-40% - Printing/Fulfillment of Orders 90% or so what is left - Advertising on Google, Facebook, Buying Ads Across the Internet
Half or so of every sale is going to be spent on printing the pictures, framing photos, shipping the orders, processing credit cards, maintaining and improving the site, etc. This is all done for you. If you start a gallery, you pay for the space, you pay for the prints, you use your time setting it all up and selling the prints yourself, you ship out orders if they come from a different area... etc.
On top of all of that, 15% goes to the photographers... so we're up to nearly 65%.
Most of the rest will be spent on marketing. That's my specialty. In the last three years, I've ran the marketing for four companies, and each has risen to the top of their niche. Three of the four made over $20,000 a day in revenue on average. I did this by spending a ton of money advertising. It's always going to be a major expense because that's how customers and sales are brought to the page. I also happen to be one of the best at buying it on the internet. That's great for the photographers on Gnarly Sunset, because it means there is the potential for a significant number of sales.
So, if you upload a lot of great photos, you have the potential to earn daily commissions, and for little extra work. Just join, upload your photos (each takes about a minute), then forget about your account. When you earn enough commission to receive a payout, we'll make sure your payment info is right, and get you paid. You realistically could spend just one hour putting your photos on Gnarly Sunset, and make serious residual income for the long-term future.
Finally, put the 15% in the perspective of the sale price of the items. Microstock agencies don't print and ship your photos, they just provide a download. That's how they justify $2 prices and pennies for commission. One sale on Gnarly Sunset will make you between $2 and $112.5!"
Beautiful shot...I love the textures, combined with the warm color tone palette. Snow just looks beautiful when the tone of the light falling on it is warm. Amazing perspective aswell...definitely a favorite.
