You might finish your shopping the night before Christmas, but image buyers don´t!  Image buyers preparing for Christmas campaigns have already started looking for photos.  What will they find?  Your fresh images of sandcastles and bikinis or your one year old images of the children opening Christmas gifts? 

This photo was sent at the end of August.  Good job, Franck!

Our expert photo-researchers recommend submitting your seasonal images 3-4 months before the actual season, so that they appear on our website right when the buyers are looking for them.  It’s not easy to plan and shoot so far ahead, and in some cases, it might be impossible or too expensive, but there are many seasonal images of objects or models which can be made in advance and released into the market right when the buyers want to buy them. 

The following calendar can help you transform from a procrastinator to a strategic planner:

JANUARY - Submit for Mother's day
Photos of gifts, homemade cards, hugs, kisses & other affectionate moments between mother/grandmother and children, spending time together (cooking, playing, talking, sports, crafts) portraits of mothers.

Everything said made a great deal of sense. But, think about this, what if you added a little information? I ain't suggesting your information is not solid, but suppose you added a post title to possibly grab people's attention? I mean The stock photographers calendar: a photo for every season is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they create news headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers interested about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.

Most men who notice the first signs of hair loss are suffering from the early symptoms of male pattern baldness. Because of the potential risks associated with chemical pesticide medications, it is wise to consider using natural pesticide alternatives. Grapefruit, lemon, chamomile and ylang ylang are said to be for light hair.

Do you remember when your teacher or professor told you that studying meant reading through your book and your class notes. Because EFT works, like acupuncture, to clear blocks in the body's energy systems created by those thoughts and experiences, it is highly effective for creating a new blueprint, as you say, for future relationships. (Whether you will be reading it at high speed or normal speed).
