Without a doubt, 2020 has been brutal on a lot of photographers across all genres, and as the year comes to a close, many of us are still looking for ways to diversify our income streams and increase our financial stability in 2021. This helpful video features a photographer discussing some of his side earnings in stock photography in November of this year and what a variety of stock photo sites are currently paying.
Coming to you from James Wheeler with Photerloo, this great video discusses his stock photography situation in November of this year with a detailed breakdown by company. As you will see, Wheeler is not using this as a main source of income, but rather uploading mostly photos from his travels to create a nice source of passive income on the side. He has spread his images across a variety of services (15 are shown in this video alone), and while that certainly takes a fair amount of work, if you can develop an efficient system, that extra few hundred dollars a month for photos that might have just sat in your personal catalog can be nice to have. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Wheeler.
