Earn money from your videos/photos

If you feel talented in photography or videography, you can make money from your images and videos. If you upload your images or your videos to a stock agency, your potential customers will be form all around the world. And the most exciting news is that you can sell your videos unlimited times, so if you lucky, you can earn a lot of money even from 1 video footage.

Check the numbers:

4K footage ~ 68,7 $ / download
HD footage ~ 17,7 $ / download
Single image ~ 0,25-28$ / download (depend on from resolution and license)

So If you want to earn 4000$ a month, you can reach it with only 58 downloads (4K footage). It's 2 downloads/day.

First I recommend to shoot and upload what you like. If you would like to earn more money, make some research; check the download statistic at IStockPhoto (see the link below). I tried some agencies and I suggest the following five to try. If you would like to try one or two of them, try the first and the second one from the list, it will be perfect. It’s fast and easy for beginners too.

Some important rules:
-no trademarks/logos on the images
-check the focus and the noise (they don't accept noisy/blur images)
-You have to add keywords and a short description to your submission
-you can upload the same image to several agencies

Shutterstock (very fast and easy to upload)
Sell photos, footage clips, illustrations & vectors | Shutterstock

Fotolia (very fast and easy to upload too)

IStockPhoto (harder uploading, but higher royalities)

Bigstockphoto (easy uploading, but fewwr visitors than others)

Dreamstime (easy uploading, but very slow)
Stock Photos, Royalty-Free Images & Vectors By Dreamstime

And don't remember - enjoy your work, because this is the only way that you can reach your goal in photography/ videography.

I don't have a 4K or a professional video camera, but I see that this is a big possibility to make money - so don't miss it!

Here are some tips about videos on Shutterstock:
