Our Photo Buyers’ Surveys are quite short and simple, and allow us to produce a snapshot of industry trends and current photo buyer needs & expectations.
The specific focus varies each year, but for 2016 we’re looking to provide photographers with useful information on content and usage trends, so they can better supply the images you need going forward. This year we’re also asking for some details on how you go about sourcing images and your main considerations when making a licensing decision.
The survey is deliberately quick and simple, and will only take most people couple of minutes to complete, though there are some long-form answers available if you wish to elaborate.
Obviously the more participants we can attract, the better value the information will be, so we do appreciate your assistance in that regard as well.
So please complete the survey for starters, but then also take a moment to share this site anywhere you connect with other photo buyers.
If you’d also like to send a link to any Photographers you deal with regularly, that will really help us gather more useful data there as well!
