Selling Microstock (Photos, Videos, Illustrations) — Is It For You?

Shutterstock Sales from Contributor Dashboard

I’ve just written up a page about selling microstock (licensed photos, videos, and illustrations). It’s worth bringing up for two reasons:

  1. I would not have just made my first $1,000 from microstock if I had continued ignoring it.
  2. Shutterstock gives me a referral bonus for talking people into buying or selling photos (even if they’re not mine). This means support for The Adaptive and everything I’m involved with.

If you’re a photographer, videographer, or illustrator, you owe it to yourself to consider the benefits of selling microstock.
