Stock Photography Secret 1

posted on 17th of january, 2016

Long before in a magazine I saw a security camera Ad. It has a picture of room, interior was out of focus but an ant stealing a large piece of bread was well focused. After I jumped into Stockphoto industry that Ad revealed me a big secret.

When you get a lot of energy and start thinking about your career or easy money in stock photography. Well you understand later that it’s an ocean that you have jumped into. It’s difficult to earn your share as most of giant photographers with exceptional gears and stuff do not leave much room for you. I do not want you feel disappointed.

Hi Habibullah , good suggestion! I would also add a hint not to get disappointed too quickly and learn from your mistakes and continue to improve! I've been on dreamstime for 5 years now, first 4 years were really slow, I didn't get many pictures approved or sold, but it's changed in last year, and actually recently managed to buy my first cool lens for earnings made on dreamstime. I know it may take another few years to buy next gear from stock photography, and there are more efficient ways to make money, but despite it being time consuming, I find it also good learning path on the way to better pictures.
So, don't get discouraged too quickly! Cheers! ;-)

I am here because I enjoy photography, and not necessary follow the stock photography trends. For me this is a hobby, not source of income, otherwise it would not make any sense. As you said, this is the ocean in which is difficult to be found. Nevertheless, I am glad that some of my images are found and represent some value to be downloaded. This is my secret.

The thing that is depressing is that 30,000 new photographs are added each day and mine may be number 29,999. Buyers will never find it! Too many people, too many photographers, too many pictures!
