Our first program meeting of the new year will be a presentation and talk on the Stock Photography industry by Steve Heap.
Steve has been selling his images for the past five years, and has built a portfolio of more than 5000 images that are offered through the main online stock agencies as well as his own personal stock site – BackyardStockPhotos.com.
Steve will cover the different ways that you can make money from photography, and focus in on what has worked for him in building an income that he expects to reach $25K this year. Although this is not an easy path to follow, it is one that keen photographers should bear in mind if they decide to try to monetize their hobby.
Steve is the author of an eBook – Getting Started in Stock, available from Amazon, Apple and his own site, BackyardSilver.com, where he blogs regularly about things he has learned about the stock photography world.
