I have recently started adding some of my images to the Alamy Stock Library. I thought I may as well put some of my images somewhere where they could potentially create some residual income in the future. You can also access the library from the “Stock” menu option at the top of this blog.
I am realistic, I don’t expect to make lots of money from doing this. Generally you need a huge and diverse library of images before many sales start coming in, but now that I have been accepted onto the library, the process of putting up the images is kinda fun. Plus it will make me think about different photographic subjects that I think would be useful to print and web media. As of writing I have 188 images accepted onto the library. My own personal goal is to get it to 500 by the end of the year. Let’s see how I get on.
I am planning some articles about my experiences of producing stock, including some tips for key-wording the images so that people can find them using the Alamy search engine.
