If you’re interested in selling your photos online, this is the right course for you. We’ll cover EVERYTHING you need to know to successfully upload and sell your photos online. In this course you’ll learn how to plan, shoot, retouch, keyword and upload your photos and sell them online.

I’ll share with you all my knowledge and secrets acquired through 10 years of uploading more than 40,000 photos and selling more than 1,000,000 photo licenses worldwide!

This course is for you whether you’re just looking to make some extra bucks with photos you have lying around in a hard drive or if you’re an experienced photographer looking to become a full-time photographer and make a living out of it.

What’s so great about being a stock photographer you ask?

1. Be your own boss – You decide what to shoot, who to shoot, when to shoot. Just make sure you DO shoot and work, this is not an easy money scheme. More on that below!

2. Manage your time – Work whenever you can, at your own pace. If you have another job, you’re a student or anything else and you just have a few hours a day or weekends free, that’s fine, that’s enough to get you started. That’s how I started anyway, and now I’m a full-time stock photographer. I work when I want, I have spare time to spend with my family, friends, I decide when to work and what to work on.

3. Do what you love – If you love to travel, you love food, love pets, love people, anything’s fine. You can shoot what you love and still make some money from it. No dealing with clients or bosses, just follow your passion.

You won’t get rich overnight

Don’t get me wrong, getting paid for your photos feels great. Finding some of your photos being used across the world is also really great. However, like all good things in life, you have to put some work in it. Stock photography is NOT about taking photos of things you have lying around your house, it’s about finding your passion and giving it value by creating a photograph. And sometimes, if you get lucky, you may get that one photo or shoot that becomes viral and gets sold thousands of times!

Becoming a successful stock photographer takes time and a lot of work, but you’re already ahead of so many people just by taking this course. I’ll give you a head start, I’ll share with you everything I’ve learned over the years.
