Offsetting cost of this hobby...microstock?
Feb 1, 2013

I'm not quite sure where to place this thread!

I've delved into the world of microstock. I know that for some this is controversial. My objective is simply to offset some of the cost of this rather expensive hobby. And, the most expensive part of this hobby for me has been the lenses!

In any event, I started experimenting with some microstock uploads a few years ago. Over the past three years, the revenues have grown to over $500 per month. At this point, it pays for a camera upgrade, a new lens and maybe a photography trip during the year.

I know many are interested in ways to make money using photographs that they have already taken. So, I thought I would share some information about my experiences in this area.

Please feel free to visit my photography blog if you are interested in reading more about this and viewing the earnings by agency by month:

Thanks...and I hope that this information is helpful.
