Six Ways To Sell Photos
Anyone can be a photographer. Anyone can sell their photos and make money from their photos. This is not to say that everyone will have equal talent at photography, nor will everyone have equal success at making money from photography, if this is the goal. Anyone can be a hobbyist photographer. But that’s another eBook. ;)
In this eBook, we will skip right to the available income-generating options assuming that you are looking for places to sell photos you have already taken or photo you plan to take in the future.
I’m going to discuss three different methods for selling your photographs and each of these three areas have two-parts, so technically there are SIX ways to sell detailed in this ebook.
Stock Photos are images that are not taken for a specific product, company, or service, but is a generic or “stock model” that can be used for a variety of purposes and a lot of times more than one purpose.
For example: Whereas a large hamburger chain like McDonald’s might set up their own (typically medium to large scale) photo shoots for their specific products, on the other hand a local diner or bar/grill might purchase some stock photos of hamburgers to use on their menu and promotional items.
Ever notice how a lot of the images on take-out menus look the same??
The main benefit to using stock photos rather than setting up a photo shoot is cost. Some businesses do not have the budget pay for hiring a photographer and setting up photo shoot, which could entail additional expenses for hiring models, make-up artists and hair stylists, renting a studio, and also potential post-production costs.
Stock photography is usually performed by professional photographers and most of the stock agencies (we’ll get to that shortly) have quality requirements and creative criteria. So – you know you can get good to excellent photographs to use without spending as much as you might… though there ARE stock photographs which do cost a pretty penny due to licensing rights (another topic we’ll touch upon).
There is also no shortage of photographs or photographers out there, so for most of the common items someone might need stock images for - pets, plants, household items, landscape scenes, etc. - there is a plethora to choose from.
But at the other end of the scale you have larger usage needs (such as a national magazine or news site) photos which include recognizable people/celebrities, buildings and privately-owned places, brands, exclusive events, etc. where one would need permission to use the photos – that’s where we pay the piper, er – photographer, photographed subject(s), property-owner, or photo-owner
