An unusual wine cellar (2) - And here's the underground river

>> Thursday, 18 June 2009

The very dramatic newly built underground barrel aging cellar under the winery, with rows of barrels. In the walls and in the floor there are oval openings that show the soil structure and the underground river that flows underneath the winery Domaine Vignoble des Verdots Conne de Labarde Bergerac Dordogne France

I'd love to use this photo and the prior one in a post on my blog, The Wine Collector. I'd be glad to provide any attribution you like.

Glad you liked the photos.

Photography is my business and liveliehood and my images are licenced through (for example) alamy.com.

You can find those particular ones with this search (cut and paste the url if it doesn't link):

OK, but that site is crazy in terms of answering 20 questions to get a price. The hassle is too much. You should post them on iStockPhoto.com. I can just pay per photo size which is usually a couple of dollars at most per photo (which I am glad to pay but for my use, more isn’t justified). The price it quoted me for one photo was $400+. I'll pass.

iStockPhoto is a so-called microstock supplier, selling pictures at very small amounts.

It is a mystery to most professionals how any of the microstock sites manage to earn a reasonable return for the photographers, or for the agency itself.

It's a bit like saying "why should I bother paying so much money for Petrus when I can get a Gallo for a few bucks".

You get what you pay for.

See for example what pictures you get if you search for Yquem on iStockPhoto (http://tinyurl.com/lv333d) and what you get on Alamy (http://tinyurl.com/me9drl).

You get what you pay for.

You don't give your time and products away for next to nothing, do you?

Make as much money as you can. I simply need a web photo for a blog which I don't make any money on directly. I already promote your blog on my blogroll and would be glad to provide attribution (think about it as a marketing expense paid in kind). Normally, iStockPhoto is more than adequate for 90+% of my photo needs which are just to illustrate points in a blog. Your photos are great; I just cannot afford to buy them.

I am likely to start using Photoshelter soon, which will give me a better tool to respond to this kind of requests for web usage. Stay tuned.
