I mentioned last Wednesday that I had recently discovered the work of Hans Halberstadt, a photographer who specializes in stock imagery of the military, including model released images. Hans now sells his stock directly to clients through PhotoShelter, rather than through a large stock agency, and I wanted to talk to him more about this new way of doing business. Hans was gracious enough to let me interview him, and provided thorough, thoughtful answers to all my questions – see below. Thanks to Hans for being so willing to share this information with other photographers.
