Beginner tips for selling your photos

Hi,

I want to share some info on how to make it in stock photography even if you're a beginner!

I have been in stock photography for about 4 years. I am a contributor of 6 stock agencies:

Shutterstock:

Fotolia:

123RF:

Deposit photos:

But actually I have found that Shutterstock works best for me and generates stable income. There are a few difficulties that you may face during registration process:

For when Shutterstock exams your first uploaded batch of photos:

don't worry if you don't pass on the first try, it happens very often. Carefully read the information they provide about examining the photos and try again. If you don't pass, you may need to wait for a while before trying again. Also, for your first photo batch, try to upload various photos with different subjects. Many people struggle with this because of a few reasons:

*Check there are no people in the photo if you don't have model release (document that the person in photo allows you to sell photos of them).

*Check there is no advertising or trademarks that might be subject to copyright (even manufacturer name on a kitchen knife is subject to copyright for example, so be carefull and photoshop it out)

*Check the exposure: your photo should be not overexposed or underexposed, even if you think that it gives mood to the photo. Such photo will probably not be accepted.

*Check that there is no vissible grain or noise. Inspect the photo at 100% size. That's how Shutterstock checks them.

For me, Shutterstock is no. 1 in stock photography. I like 123RF too because they don't delete rejected photos, so you have all the keywords archived. For me, 123RF earns low but stable income, and they also usually accept more photos than other stock agencies.

Hope this helped, good luck in stock photography!

19 ways to become a hated photographer

Human beings seem to think that we are gonna take their photograph, positioned it in an ad, and make a gazillion greenbacks off of it, and they won't get a say inside the count, an awful lot much less a reduction of the $. Oh, if only that were proper. This isn't always certainly paranoia, as photogs and editors used to be plenty much less careful about releases. Nowadays no editor worth the pay will receive a photograph without a replica of the discharge, no matter what the use (besides news.) information is specifically exempted with the aid of case law within us - any individual sued and lost, but in Canada, a launch is required for the newspaper. I do not know about European law. Well-known human beings are exempt from the release regulation, however, regular people are not.
