Digital Stock Photography
Digital photography is often a lot easier to submit to stock photography agencies online. Digital stock photography offers you the ability to share your stock photography work with the world faster than regular photography. Many magazines and newspapers nowadays will only take stock photography submissions in .jpeg or .gif formats. The days of negatives, proof sheets, and slides in stock photography are over. Some photographers still choose to offer 35 mm prints or other specialty photo services, but digital stock photography is where the money is in the stock photography industry.
Digital photographs take less than a minute to upload to your web host. It is much easier to showcase the different styles of stock photography at which you excel in this way. You can even start your own photography site that stock photography companies can look at, and maybe book some jobs on the side. Be sure to include the following on your digital stock photography site:
Offer a subscription service for your digital stock photography. Many people need stock photography for their websites, brochures, flyers, etc. on a regular basis. Offering one time downloads and a subscription service with a wide range of types of stock photography may be one way to increase your sales revenue while shooting whatever you like and increasing your stock photography portfolio.
Set up a shopping cart on your site and allow those who may have just stopped by to check you out to purchase a print for download instantly. For customized orders or packages or to set up special shoots, you can design an order form for your stock photography site that will allow them to be as specific as they like about what exactly it is that they're looking for.
You can also offer photographic services. List and define your services in detail. Some may not even realize that they are looking for the exact photographic service that only you can provide. List your hours, services and prices. If you are only available to work at night and on weekends, list this on your site. List different services that you provide such as wedding photography, baby and pregnancy pictures, family portraits, student photos, pet photography and more. Listing prices is not a requirement, but something that is highly recommended. Offering a variety of packages with the option to customize will help potential customers know right away whether or not they can afford your services.
Last but not least, list your contact info. Include everything that a potential customer may need: email address, land line, cell phone, studio address, etc.
