Stock photo sites have come a long way and today if you are a keen and skilled photographer you can definitely earn a living out of selling photos. Different sites have different submission procedures and rules to follow and also some pay more and others less. The trick is to get the right balance and then submit to sites where you work gets highlighted and comes in the limelight.
These are a list of some of the best Photography sites to sell on:
Shutterstock is one of the most popular sites for buying and selling photos on. Their payouts work on a sliding scale basis meaning the more images you get downloaded the more you will earn with every image.
This is a stock photo site which is great for beginners. The payouts are not that great but they offer an extended licensing program which helps increase the amount garnered from every sale
Getty images have good payoffs but the entry process is difficult and cumbersome as Getty is a traditional stock photo agency
Stockxpert was initially a small microstock photo company which was taken over by a much bigger company and they now have a new name Jupiter Images. They offer 50 per cent commission on all credit purchases and pay electronically through PayPal as per your preference. They can also mail a check to you if you like.
