In some blogs and forums I often read, how easy and cool it is, to sell your own photos to earn some extra cash and generate passive income. Furthermore, some people write, they quitted their jobs and became full-time stock image sellers. The idea sounds great and if you like to photograph, why shouldn’t you earn some money with it? But if you ask me, all of these postings sound too good to be true. The fact is, that to sell stock photos is a hard work and you will succeed, if you are willing to invest a lot of time. In this article I would like to share my experience to show you, what you need to do to sell stock photos successfully.
Have you ever been in a situation when you made photos with a DSLR in RAW-fomat and your pics never looked like professional ones you know from a poster, post card or the internet? And did you ask yourself, if the problem would be caused by your equipment? Or maybe it were your poor techniques which let you feel like an amateur without any skills? Let me tell you folks – it’s not about you or your equipment. It’s actually about the way the modern DSLR cameras are designed! And that’s a good news, isn’t it? With this article I hope to give you some clarity so you can boost up your photography.
