For professional photographers, having a variety of websites on which to sell your top shots can be a great way to diversify your income. For newbies with a bit of skill, it can be an interesting way to start earning some cash on the side.
The 12 websites below have been chosen due to their high royalty rates, their popularity, or simply because they offer something different. Each could provide an additional income stream for anyone with enough good shots lying around.
If you would like to add any other websites to this list, please provide a link in the comments at the end of the article.
There’s a reason why Alamy has over 60 million images and videos for sale on its website. It’s because it offers photographers a huge 50% royalty payment on each photo sold. The site also allows photographers to sell their photos elsewhere (it doesn’t demand exclusivity).
This has enabled Alamy to become the world’s largest marketplace for stock photos, and it now has a huge number of monthly visitors – all of whom are potential customers for your photos.
