Stock Photography Agency Employee: “It’s a gym for beginners!”

Hi, I am a stock photographer. Actually, that is how my passion for photography started all together and  throughout the years lead me to become a visual artist and a stock photography agency employee. In fact, I am a marketing specialist for 123RF.

Stock photography is often criticised by the so called ‘real photographers’. Yet, I find such criticisms rather snobbish. Before becoming an artistic photographer, everyone needs practice. There are lots of things to learn: technical abilities, artistic skills, the creative market’ functioning and so on.

Money is also relevant. We don’t all know since the start that we want to take photography seriously or if we are able to. You can make some passive income by uploading your digital pictures to stock photography websites. Every time an image of yours is downloaded you earn a commission.

As a visual artist and a marketing expert for a stock photography agency, I strongly believe stock photography is a gym for beginners.

It enables you to draw some income to purchase your first gear, understand what the market is looking for, analyse what are the subjects you shoot best, keep high quality and technical standards and more.

It is also an excellent way to master technical abilities. Stock photography requires perfection. Contrasting the fine art world where rules are made to broken, if your picture is a little bit noisy or slightly out of focus, it will not be sellable as stock. This a good discipline for beginners who still have to learn how to respect rules before going onto the next level and learn how to break the rules.

There are numerous stock photography sites that need your photos. Numerous people, organizations, associations, sites and print distributions are in consistent need of a wide assortment of value photos for their sites, direct mail advertisements, handouts, magazines, recordings and daily papers. These substances consistently swing to stock photography sites to purchase the photos that they require.

Stock photography agencies will pay you a rate for each one of your photos that gets downloaded, each time it is downloaded. Your photos can be downloaded a boundless number of times.

You can present your computerized photos to sites Shutterstock and the agency for whom i work, 123RF. You don’t need to be an expert picture taker. You simply require a computerized camera (with additional memory cards) and web get to. Agreeing to accept these sites is free. Each time one of your photos is downloaded you’ll get paid a level of the cost of the photo, which for the most part comes to twenty-five pennies to a few dollars.

Something is wrong.

Pretty much any sort of computerized picture is acknowledged as long as it is of high caliber. Your photos should be in JPG/JPEG and for most stock sites they ought to be 1600 x 1200 pixels or bigger. New picture takers for Shutterstock need to submit photos that are 4.0 Megapixels or Million Pixels (MP). You can ascertain the quantity of pixels in a photo by increasing the width by the stature. A photo that is 1600×1200 is 1.92 million pixels.

In photos that portray a minor, or where an identifiable human face is unmistakable, you should send a model discharge with the photo to the site. You have to submit unique work and ensure that you do exclude copyrighted material or logos in your pictures. Try not to submit photos that have been expanded in estimate from their unique document measure. You should read the accommodation rules from every site before you begin posting your photos.

When you have transferred a photo to a stock photography site, it remains there for whatever length of time that you like (notwithstanding for quite a long time). Each time it gets downloaded you win cash. You can transfer your photos to a few unique sites as long as the sites permit the accommodation of non-restrictive photos.

You can take ten pictures every day and transfer every one to ten diverse stock photography sites. In only three months you’ll have around 900 photos transferred 9,000 times. What is extremely cool about this is before your photos are transferred they keep on making cash for you with no extra work on your part. In the event that you constantly transfer pictures to the stock sites you can win considerably more.

TIP: As a stock photography agency employee, I know that the first real milestone income-wise is having 1000 photos on sale. From that turning point, you will see a major change in your revenue. 

Yet, you don’t need to reach that amount to have some good surprises. When I had around 500 images on Shutterstock, I sold one for 44$ of commission in one sale… I was astounded! But this sort of unexpected surprises happens often and the more pics you have online, the more frequently you’ll get surprised.

The majority of the stock sites pay you once every month through PayPal, MoneyBookers, paper check or direct store.

Start by taking pictures in your general vicinity, or travel anyplace and bring home the bacon by taking stock photos. The more pictures you upload the all the more procuring potential you have. You can profit from this “employment” from pretty much anyplace on the planet.
