Uploaded: November 2012
As some of you may remember, I spent 10 days in Switzerland last year and shot some very nice real people doing real things portraits, along with stunning landscapes. I uploaded nearly 200 photos from the trip in late 2012 and August 2013. Three made my top 50 best earners, although with Getty numbers for November and December still up in the air, there might be more when the list is set in stone. This one was in the first batch and it made Vetta through inspectors. It really is one of the nicest – lovely expressions, miraculous lighting and a great sense of place and story. Of course, it never sold on Istock – don’t get me started on statistical interpretations, let’s just say it lost on the timing roulette. Luckily, it did get some good revenues from Getty, hence its rank. You can get to know more of the shoot back story in this post. There is also this alternate take that I wrote about previously.
