If you have supplied photos to stock photography, what insight do you have for someone who had not done that yet.

It is a tough market right now. If you don't have at least 500 to 1000 images covering multiple subjects don't expect much sales wise. The more images and the more subjects you have covered the more likely you are to make a sale. As far as what agencies stay away from the microstocks or self represent through a place like picturengine and keep all the money, picturengine WILL be a major player soon as photo buyers are using it to buy and shop multiple agencies at one time. I will be 100% self represented sometime next year.
