Hey, this is a pretty nice photo! If you would permit me to tell you about something really neat I just discovered and am having a blast with, I recently learned that photographers can sell their photos on microstock photography websites like the ones I listed below. Read on if you are interested.
It is a pretty cool system: companies can cut costs by buying from microstock sites rather than paying their own photographers, and you get paid every time an individual or company buys your photo(s). The signup for these kinds of accounts is free because they keep a bit of every sale. Also, companies don't get your copyright, so they have to buy your photo once for every time they use it! The photos never leave the microstock site, and will earn you passive income whenever they sell for years to come.
Also, I do understand that there are photographers out there (already met two) who got upset by my mentioning this opportunity. If you dont appreciate this message, that is okay, you have a right to your opinion just like everyone else, and I respect that. Already a bunch of people have appreciated my telling them about this neat opportunity. One very nice guy I met was already involved with microstock, and he has helped me with my own efforts to sell my photos!
So please dont get upset, and even if you dont appreciate this, that is okay, I totally respect you for your opinions. I know that while some people dont like my idea, many, many more have told me that they appreciated the info. I apologize if you get this message twice, I try to avoid that.
Well, have fun! (By the way, so you dont get surprised like I did, Crestock and Shutterstock are tougher to get into since they have a skill requirement, but they pay more.) So perhaps you can give this a go next time you find yourself with some free time.
Enjoy your summer!
