After many failed attempts, I have finally been accepted by a couple of photo stock agencys, My images are now available to be downloaded and seen by potentially millions of people globally, its a great feeling and I do intend to shoot more especially for stock purposes, including product photography as this is something ive really got into during the Covid 19 Pandemic.

So what did I do differently to be accepted for stock photography?

Instead of trying the normal photo agencies like everyone else does, I had been trying Alamy for years, instead I went for Adobe, seeing I am an Adobe cusyomer anyway, most of my submissions were accepted straight away.

Here are some of my images currently on the Adobe Stock platform, I intend to upload a ton more too.

Additionally I have started to build my own photo stock library website too, more on that another day.

10 Top Tips To Shooting Stock Photography

  1. Do not edit the images.
  2. Get everything right in camera and not on the computer.
  3. Straight lines and horizons.
  4. Maximum resolution.
  5. No branding.
  6. No intelectual property.
  7. Model and building releases if needed,
  8. Using the correct equipment.
  9. Finding the right agency for your niche.
  10. Use a tripod in daylight (not me personally).

I shoot a lot of landscapes, I try and ensure personally there are no people in the images, thats just me tho, how you shoot might be a lot more different.
