Cutcaster Review

21 September 2012 Stock Photo Agencies Last update: 14 June 2015

Details | Website

As professional photographers, we are happy to support new and developing stock photography businesses by uploading our portfolios (btw quite successful on well established sites) to their websites and help grow stock image collections to attract customers and allow new players establish their position in the market.

We try not to criticise anybody because we know how hard it is to start the business, grow it and then run it successfully. Unfortunately, there is not much to write about here... 1,108 stock images on sale and ... 8 regular sales since Feb 2012...

We believe that the staff is working very hard and we keep uploading new images to Cutcaster as to the other stock photo agencies , but recently we started asking ourselves whether there is any point in doing so any longer. It's been 3 years now since we joined and things don't seem to be promising. We will watch Cutcaster for another couple of months and then we'll decide, should we stay or should we go...
