A guide to the essentials of stock photography: picking agencies, creating metadata, and shooting buyer-friendly images.
Web-based stock photography has become one of the biggest income streams for photographers around the world, and has democratised the process, making it easy for just about anyone to sign up and sell their work. Not all photographers, however, can navigate the terminology, let alone understand that keywording will have more effect on their sales than the quality of the photo itself. This book will break anyone into that world:
See why some photos do better than others in the stock-image market
Discover how to write metadata that will sell photos electronically
