TWiP 449 – Presets! Good, Bad, or Lazy?

TWiP 449 – Presets! Good, Bad, or Lazy?

We haven’t discussed the stock, or micro­stock photography industries in quite a while on this show. But in this episode, we discuss Corbis, owned by Bill Gates, being sold to Visual China Group — China’s equivalent to Getty Images.

VCG is also the same company that in 2015 led a $13 million dollar investment into 500px — a deal that frequent TWiP co­host and co­founder of 500px Evgeny Tchebotarev told us about when it first happened.

Also in this episode, we talk about Canon’s bold new marketing experiment called “The Lab”. And we dive into a round­table discussion about presets… good, bad or lazy!

Before we get started, we also wanted to let you know that Frederick is excited to be speaking at the Out of Chicago conference June 24­-26. For a limited time, they’re knocking $100 off the registration price if you use the code “twipchicago” when you sign up. Just head over to TWiP.Pro/OOC to see all the details. See you in the windy city!
