Stock Photography 7 Years, 4 Months ago  
Any other stock photographers out there? I have been selling my images as stock for a few years and love it.

I am trained as a product photographer so that sort of lends itself well to stock and it has been a great source of income for me. The list of sites I use is on my website if your curious.

When I was doing a lot of photo-manipulations, I offered photo's I'd taken as free stock. But my equipment was (and still is) rather limited so I do not do much with it anymore.

I had always wanted to get into product photography as well, but lack of fundage always holds me back (for both equipment and training).

There are stock photographers at many equipment and skill levels from what I have experienced.

The equipment for product photography and the training is pretty specialized, but if you ever wanted to get into it on the cheap you could try to find a local photographer to assist. I learned the most out in the field with experienced photographers as an assistant when I first graduated photo school. There are both free & paid assisting opportunities out there & usually are day by day jobs.

I occasionally sell a train photo as stock but I haven't sold enough of them to actually receive a check so far.

We've just started offering some of our library of photos on our other shop, for people to download and print themselves. Our kit isn't good enough to produce big commercial images but for people looking for things online to work from, as most of them will only have an a4 printer anyway, its fine.

We always take far more than we use and even if we only sell a few it helps to cover printing costs for the ones we need to work from
