Which you are going to sell to....?
I'm afraid that I don't buy the sporadic claims for a new beginning. The best has been and gone, and that's not a reference to the Golden Age per se
, but to the outlets, the opportunities of making a good living and not a nail-biting nightmare.
It's writ large across the face of the big stock agencies. Where they used to make the individual supplier a fair amount of money, they now make themselves
a reasonable living and that's about it. It isn't even the death of many outlets, it's the willingness of some suppliers to do it for nothing other than the imagined glory. That glory usually resided within minds that are supported via other commercial endeavours - the pro feels quite different emotions.
It's over. Period.
