It’s time for a part II of the passive income series of the websites that will pay you for your photography! Making a passive income by selling photography online is the number 1 passive income source for photographers. And now stock photos are more mainstream because bloggers understand it’s not fair to just Google for images (and illegal!) – so start now. Mindsets are changing, people are willing to pay for the visuals for their website. Of course, photographers who started out with Stock Photography a few years back have a huge lead when it comes to passive income from stock photos. I’m told it’s hard to make a full-time living off of selling Stock Photography these days, but why not try yourself first?
Read PART I of this series here for 7+ more stock photography websites and tips to make more sales.
- ThemeForest. I originally knew ThemeForest from its WordPress themes, but they sell so much more (Envato Market), PhotoDune is their stock photo marketplace. It offers non-exclusive authors 55% of each sale. Envato Unstock is where to sell premium authentic photos, which have simple, straight forward licenses and purchase options.
- 500px. 500px is a photo community for discovering, sharing, buying and selling inspiring photography powered by creative people worldwide. It’s one of the websites I like most when it comes to photography, because it’s not the standard ‘office guy eating a random banana’ kind of photography. You sell your photos at their Marketplace.
- Alamy. Alamy is a standard stock photography website where you can sell your photos.
- Stocksy. Stocksy is definitely a great website to find photos as a blogger, so to sell great images as a photographer too! The position to submit photos is not always open, but follow their social media for more information!
Corbis. Corbis was established before the whole online stock photography took over the passive income world, so it’s a bit more work to submit your photos. Unfortunately, they just announced right after I wrote this blog post:
Corbis has announced the sale of the Corbis Images (excluding Splash), Corbis Motion, and Veer licensing businesses to Unity Glory International, an affiliate of the Visual China Group (VCG), a leading Chinese visual communications and new media business.
Following this transaction, VCG is expanding its longstanding partnership with Getty Images, and, after a transition period, Getty Images will become the exclusive distributor of Corbis content outside China.On May 2nd, the Corbis.com and CorbisMotion.com sites will be retired. As of April 6th no further content submissions are being accepted by Corbis.
