I am not primarily a stock photographer, but I do contribute to a few stock agencies (primarily Stocksy United). Right now, I mostly see stock photography as a way to earn passive income by leveraging leftover photography from paid gigs or personal work into additional revenue streams.
It’s pretty sweet to check your stock photography stats and find out that you just earned some extra cash from work that would otherwise just be sitting on a hard drive somewhere.
However, every once in a while I do go out to specifically shoot stock photography.
In this article, I am going to share the anatomy of a recent Christmas stock photography shoot.
