Build a monthly income with stock photography.
• It doesn’t cost you anything in terms of money. All you need is your pictures.
• It’s easy to start. You just need to start submitting.
• It’s highly scalable. The more you have pictures on the marketplace, the more you’ll earn.
• It’s online, meaning you earn money even when you sleep. And you can work from wherever you want.
These are the same methods I use as a stock photographer and I am going to teach you exactly how I proceed!
My goal is to help you do the same as a beginning and then go beyond – depending on the extra effort you are willing to put along the way.
If you’re looking to earn extra money with your pictures as a side-hustle (and why not go full time after some time), with help from an expert instructing you how to best position your pictures for success and increase your chances to have a greater ranking to sell more and take actionable steps to get started, keep reading.
*** NOTE 1 ***
If you are looking to make “quick” money with your photography submissions, expecting guarantees that your pictures will “for sure” sell, or looking for a method to help you sell without any single effort from your side, THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR YOU.
Indeed, it takes time and consistency to start selling IF AND ONLY IF you apply the right methods – as I am describing in my course.
*** NOTE 2 ***
All of the pictures and videos you’ll see in this course are my own and available on the stock platforms for licensing.
The practical examples and DEMO I am making are with my own pictures – so you can have a close up view of how (and why) I am editing with Lightroom and Photoshop as a stock photographer.
I assume you already have a collection of pictures that you want to monetize for stock photography.
So, this course will help you focus on how to best select and curate your photos so they can sell better.
You’ll learn how to have your pictures accepted and published as well as best practices to improve your ranking so your pictures will sell more and more over time.
You are probably already active on social media and sharing your content somehow online, but this may never put money in your pocket, unless you know how to best monetize your pictures.
In this course, Stock Photography: Beginner’s Guide, you will learn the following 4 core steps:
• Identify pictures that will sell
• Prepare for submission, editing best-practices with LIVE EDITS in Lightroom and Photoshop
• Identify the right keywords
• How to increase your ranking
You might not have any experience with stock photography, but already taking great pictures on your own.
That is absolutely not a problem.
I’ve designed this course to be actionable with all tips & tricks I am using on my day to day workflow with Lightroom and Photoshop,
and made it as simple as possible.
No expert knowledge required.
All you need is to follow my recommendations and best practices.
Once you master the 4 core steps, there will be no limit!
At this stage, you might think: how long does the entire process take to start making money?
It took me approximately a month after my 1st submission to see my pictures selling.
The key here is determination and consistency – but I know you have it both.
The more your pictures are accepted, the better your ranking will get and the more you’ll sell.
And my course will help you achieve that.
So here’s exactly what I’m covering in my “Stock Photography: Beginner’s guide” course:
Taking pictures that will sell
Trends analysis, copy space, illustration
Prepare for submission with LIVE EDITS in Lightroom and Photoshop
Edit / Transform
Identify the right keywords
Manual, Automatic & reordering
What specific things you need to pay attention to before submitting your photos.
Increase your Ranking
When I started this journey on my own 3 years ago, I’ve come across a lot of training offerings with all sorts of prices ranging $400-3000!
I’ve decided I could do it on my own however it took me almost a year to understand every single aspect and most importantly all the things I could have avoided at the very first attempts.
It was very much time consuming to discover the untold practices and I was upset, hence decided I should share my knowledge broadly and help others succeed, quicker !
This course will help you get your time back and let you hit the ground running already!
Also, most of the courses I’ve come across were generic with no specific actions I could test right away.
It was all about theories without any real-life and practical tips & tricks or a step by step process.
An affordable pricing means more people can start the journey and I am here to help you do so – rather than you to waste your time with expensive and theoretical courses.
With my course, you’ll get the most efficient way to increase your chances to sell your pictures on the stock platforms, and that’s it.
