Today I have photography information that involves stock photography. There are basically two types of online photography that you will be selling. You have your assignment photography and you also have stock photography. Now when people think about assignment photography they are thinking of a photographer that that is hired to take a picture of a certain object and then they are paid. In stock photography the photographer will take pictures that are not sold before hand.
So what is stock photography? This term refers to photographs that can be licensed and sold for public and commercial needs.
Stock photography can be used for marketing, advertising and also design. There is a large demand for stock photos, all types of companies use stock photography. You will want to make sure that the photos are not illegal or harmful in any way. If you are going to use a model in a photograph you need to have a model contract or the photo will be useless. Also if a building has a name on it you will need to have permission to use the name or any logo. It's a sad felling when you get a great shot but you cannot sell it because you did not get permission. There are a few different ways that you can sell your photography online using stock photography. One of the ways is to sell usage rights.
This is where the photo can be used by someone for a limited amount for a set fee or you can sell all the rights to the image. When you sell all the rights you will receive a greater amount of money. So one way you get to sell the photo over and over to different people and the other way you sell the image once. Which why will make you more money? You can make a very nice extra income with stock photography but first you will need to review some information about photography that deals with stock photography websites.
