March 20 - one year

Fri Mar 7, 2008, 8:13 AM
Rules for how to use my stock

I'll have had this stock account open for one year, on March 20.

...and I am nearly at the 1,000,000 page view mark. I'm not ASKING you to do anything to help me get there. I'll just post a bit more stock in the next couple of days and that'll do it.

As I suspected, posting my secret stash of Carly nudes hammered my page-views over the top in under 24 hours. Thanks, Carly! :)

It's been an interesting year! I've greatly enjoyed posting stock and seeing the madness that you create with it. A few of my friends have pointed out to me that I'm crazy to just be giving this stuff away, but the way I see it: I get to participate in hundreds of people's art projects, and to be a part of the fuel of hundreds of people's creative engines... If that's not payment enough, I don't know what is.

As you can tell, working on stock has helped me creatively, because it gets me thinking outside my own box and about yours. It's no longer "what would I like to see?" it's "what would stimulate someone else?"    What I think I enjoy most is trying to come up with visual puzzles to confuse and amuse you. Like a pirate captain giving the camera the finger, or a ballerina with a samurai sword, etc. For example, today on Ebay I got an old-style Star Trek women's costume and a phaser and so forth. So I'll see if I can shoot some trek girl stock. Normally, I probably would have never thought of such a thing. But it'll feed into my own art because now I will have to think of something silly and sexy to do with a Star Trek costume. Ensign Neko-Mosume, anyone?

Anyway, I thank you sincerely for playing with me. Let's have some fun in the year to come, shall we?

Love you all,
mjr.

You've probably heard this a hundred times before -- hell, you've probably heard "you've probably heard this before" a hundred times before -- but you're one of my all-time favorite stock photographers and I'm really glad you get the attention you deserve because alot of talented people don't. You're great, your models are equally great; you've got my respect and you can give them my respect, too. Happy 1 millionth page view, dude.
