Santa Barbara, Calif.-based indie stock house Raw Talent Photo, launched in 2001 by photographer-turned-college professor Bill Robbins, has closed. The company, whose motto was "By photographers, for photographers," had "not been able to penetrate the market to the degree needed to sustain the business or allow for additional capital funding," says co-principal Robin Elledge. Billed as a "safe haven for emerging photographers," the majority of Raw Talent's 100 shooters were art school students or recent grads. "While we have enjoyed many successes, the overall business environment for stock agencies is very competitive," adds Elledge.
