While very few photographers make a full-time living shooting stock photography, it can be a decent way to supplement your main work and provide some additional financial security by diversifying your income streams. This excellent video goes in depth to show you how two photographers sold $47,000 of their photos on stock services.
Coming to you from Mango Street, this great video discusses how they sold $47,000 of stock photos. One thing that I really appreciated about this particular video is the hard data on the sales and an inside look at the sort of photos that sold well. Certainly, making a full-time living shooting stock photography is not as easy as it once was, but depending on what you shoot, you can often create a lot of assets on a job without a lot of extra work. If you already have the set, equipment, and talent there, snapping a few extra shots you can then use to build out a stock portfolio can be a straightforward way to create an extra passive income stream. This can also make getting the model clearances a bit easier since you are already on a job. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
