Do mobile stock photos really sell? Can I use a photo from a smartphone in a advertisement or on my social channels? Is the quality good enough to use it in print campaigns? I was skeptical as well but I have start selling my images via the Fotolia Instant app (our Review) with some success. Mobile photography was a big topic on the photokina 2014 in cologne and we had a chance to interview Fotolia's Head of Mobile, Morgan David de Lossy and Murat Erimel (Marketing and PR Fotolia).
Fotolia sold more than 50.000 Mobile Images
Morgan tells us about the image style that is being curated within the Instant collection, he also explains how the model release feature works in the mobile app these days. He also mentions that Fotolia has added 60,000 images to the Fotolia Instant collection so far, and they have reached more than 50,000 sales up to now. Murat also mentions the plans of Fotolia to move to new countries and re-launch their website later this year.
… and nothing is better then meeting the people behind the successful Fotolia Instant App. Check out our interview above or here on YouTube.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the interview!
