New eBook – (micro)STOCK
I sell a few thousand dollars worth of stock images a year through various stock agencies. I don’t put much work into it, which is what keeps my paycheques low, but while stock photography isn’t remotely what it once was, it’s still an exciting and viable option for photographers. I make enough to cover a new camera or a two-week trip overseas, but with a little work could see much greater returns. I know several photographers making a solid living with stock and microstock and free to do what they love – make photographs day-in and day-out. Markets evolve and change and microstock is one of those changes. Loved by some and loathed by others, microstock has changed the face of the industry and I’d be surprised if someone doesn’t try to pick a fight about this latest book. Anything that changes the game this much is bound to raise some hackles.
Nicole S. Young is a talented photographer and author – she’s currently writing her third book for the publisher we share – Peachpit. She also makes a living with microstock and does so while creating work she enjoys. Nicole covers the topic from start to finish, discusses the challenges, and includes case studies. It’s realistic in its approach and doesn’t blow smoke. If you’ve ever wanted to pursue microstock, to make a few dollars a month to pay for gear or to make a full-time income to get you out of the cubicle, this eBook is a great place to start. If you’re currently trying to make microstock work for you, this is bound to give you a step up.
