    find 11ty billion buyers for your work on micro

    find a better medium than micro







    I'm not saying that this is what you're doing (I have no idea) but most get the idea you just send in your snapshots and someone will buy it. Stock requires a lot of work before and after the fact.

    :werd: except you can't just sign up for Getty/Corbis.

    Alamy is a good one that's easy to get started with.

    :werd: though its more than just a portfolio, they have to be good stock images. Most people think free money and don't understand what will sell vs what won't.



    I'm signed up with them but haven't got anything listed yet. Its going to take a good half day to go through all their submitting guidelines.

    Where is a good place to sell prints? I know that guy on here was trying to start up that site but I haven't seen anything come of it yet. I think I have a few shots that may sell, I just haven't bothered to look around.
