Adventure-themed pictures have proven to be a highly marketable subject in stock photography. Photos of people do sell better than anything else in stock. Self-portraits and adventure could be the ticket to selling more stock images.
You’ll be more likely to sell stock photos if you can stay current on what’s selling. Here are four different industry resources to help you shoot what’s hot right now.
If your goal is to make money shooting photos for stock but you don’t have a lot of spare time, shoot your hobbies. Take some time each day to figure out how to photograph what is on your hobby list.
When starting out in stock photography, never ever give up after a first rejection. Set goals and keep trying. Eventually you will sell.
Upload seasonal stock photos two to four months before the season hits. If you’re prepared with images that designers are looking for by the time sales pick up in the fall and winter, you’ll be off to a great start.
