Just starting out? Rather than aim for
a gigantic sale of one of your photos,
aim for multiple smaller sales. You'll
get your foot in the door, and, you'll
make new buyer friends. Also, selling
ten photos at $75 is a lot easier, in
the beginning, than trying to sell one
photo at $750.

If there's a living legend in
our field of editorial stock
photography, my vote would go for
Rick Smolan,
the creator of the ever-popular
"Day in the Life.. "
series of coffee table books.

Here's a half-hour well-spent when
you hear Rick Smolan trace his
background from the early days
of stock photography to the present.


By the way, In 1977 Rick, on assignment
from National Geographic, photographed
Robyn Davidsonís epic 1700-mile trek
via camel across the Australian desert.
And now a movie, ďTracksĒ has been made
of it and the word is itís making the
ĎFilm Festivalí rounds and will be out
this Spring or earlier. Davidson and
Rick are played by the up-and-coming
Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver.

If you're a sports photographer,
you'll find quicker and better
markets for your sports photography
if you choose one favorite sport
(like golf, tennis, soccer, etc.)
and specialize in just one.

Same with nature photography,
-the competition is easier, especially
because photobuyers rarely look for
"nature photos", -they look for
specific categories of nature.
Eagles, salemanders, bears, and so on.

Specialize and you'll succeed.

A photobuyer is looking for you
at this moment because you have the
specialized picture they need.

If you have a large collection of
photos in the specialty they are
seeking, you will become a sought
after photographer for that buyer
who continually needs photos that
reflect the "theme" of their
publishing house.

Stock photos, especially editorial stock
photos are more interesting if they include
"involvement".

To tell a story with your photos,
feature people who are "involved." It
can be involvement in family situations,
the outdoors, in business, in school.

Whenever the people in your pictures
are involved, the viewers to your photos
will be involved with the photos.

You'll find photobuyers like this
aspect of your photography style because
it gets their readers involved in
their magazine or book project.

If you're shooting pictures to appeal
to the magazine industry (magazine
publishers spend thousands of dollars
monthly for photography) -- are you
shooting specialized photos or
generalized photos?

If you are shooting "general" photos,
you are shooting for magazines that
don't exist --they disappeared in the
last century.

Magazines today are
specialized.

Yes, it's possible -- even if you have

Some companies offer free do-it-yourself

However, keep in mind those kind of websites
rarely impress professional photo editors
