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.

In this article, I will discuss three tips that you can use to get paid for your photography.
