I, Tim, created skytimelapse.com as a business to business website in 2004 initially to market and license my personal portfolio to companies for multimedia projects of all sizes. In those heady days of 2004-2009, my footage was licensed and seen all over the U.S. and Europe as well as elsewhere around the world. From 2009-2015 various stock footage companies licensed my footage for me. Glimpse above my abridged works so you may see -and enjoy seeing- what is no longer on offer.
In this domain once operated a full-featured e-commerce website offering my library of footage for non exclusive sale to anyone who would agree to the purchase price and agreed to the license terms. In 2008, as a tsunami of change overtook the world, the stock footage industry was transformed and a new hegemony emerged in the stock footage world. The stock footage company I chose to outsource my footage licensing to was bought by one company, then another. Total dominance was all but achieved by one company, which in turn was bought and made subservient to an even more powerful one. Every footage creator and photographer seeking to sell their works faced a choice.
Some things have an ultimate purpose which do not include commandeer for unknown uses.
