Why Footage Secrets?
We at Stock Photo Press lead the largest network of online publications covering the stock imagery world, including this site's older sister: Stock Photo Secrets. But we had until now focused exclusively in still imagery – stock photos, vectors and illustrations. Stock footage was long-planned, and highly expected expansion in our expertise.
Why? In latest years, motion imagery – video content – started to consistently and exponentially gain ground in the consumer market. Every research and expert pointed every day more a growing popularity of video for massive end consumers, and footage became very hot in visual trends. As it couldn't be otherwise, the stock imagery industry adopted it – if people want it, brands and companies will need it, and stock agencies aim at providing it.
In the past years, stock footage has consolidated as a very profitable and active market, with lots of vendors and buyers. Although similar in certain aspects, stock footage is different from stock photography. Lots of details, from file formats to licensing terms, are different when you're working with stock videos. There's many people who are quite savvy when it comes to buying stock photos, but get easily confused or full of doubts when it comes to stock footage purchasing. Even more, there's people who are still unsure of using stock footage, because they don't fully understand how it works.
This is why we saw the value in creating Footage Secrets, a site where you can find all the important, must-know information about the stock footage industry.
For us is very exciting to expand our reach to this market, and lend our expertise to help you understand how this segment of the industry works, and how to exploit its services in your favour. By approaching more people to buying, using and selling stock footage, we expect to contribute to the growth and development of this market as well.
What's In for You?
As said, Footage Secrets is designed for you: to provide you info, special deals and knowledge that will help you know the stock footage market like the back of your hand, and to work with it maximizing your budget and results.
To this end, we structured our online magazine in different categories, covering all important aspects of working with stock footage. In each of them you will find great content to save you time and money, and boost up your skills.
