For a really comprehensive view of the stock photography market, why not consider the bundled package of both Getting Started in Stock and the Brutally Honest Guide to Microstock Photography by Alex Rotenberg. I have read Alex’s book and it is a much broader view of the stock photography market than my edition. I focus on the “how to do it” processes, looking at each major agency and discussing their quirks and approaches, whereas Alex looks more at what you need to do photographically to compete and what you can do with the skills you are picking up as a stock photographer. Buying both together saves you over $5 on the Amazon pricing. Buy with confidence here:

If you are the sort of learner who prefers watching and listening, you should investigate my Master Class in Stock Photography video, available here.

Amazon sells the Kindle version – the download file if you buy it direct from my site includes the epub book plus a full color PDF to read on any device or print out for future reference.

Get started in stock fourth editionNeed more persuasion? Over the past ten years I have learned a lot about microstock photography and the various tips and tricks to get the best out of each site. Some things are obvious – others you only learn about after spending hours reading through forum posts.  Save your time – all those tips and tricks are now available in an easy step by step guide to Microstock and how you can make money from your photos. Learn how to get into the business, how to efficiently manage and keyword your images and get them online with the minimum fuss. Finally, jump straight to the time saving tools and web sites such as StockSubmitter, Stock Analytics and Microstockr Pro to effectively manage your portfolio.

This fourth edition of my book is greatly expanded from the first release. I now cover the main stock agencies and have added detailed graphs and charts showing how my income has developed on each site and whether they are improving in terms of income per online file – in my view the best way to measure success on a stock agency. I have dedicated chapters on Keywording Secrets, easy uploading approaches and discussions on how to analyze your portfolio. As more and more sites now accept editorial images, I have added additional information on how best to meet that need.

There are excellent books available at Amazon on the sort of images to take for stock. I’m not trying to compete with those. My book is clearly a “how-to” guide based on all the experiences (good and bad) as I have gone from an income of less than $100 per month to over $35,000 per year. Why make the same mistakes and miss the opportunities I have missed – one day’s worth of sales will more than cover the cost of my book! It is now recognized as the Best Seller in Professional Photography Books!

    Bought your book last year. It’s fantastic! I was just wondering if you have seen any decline in the past year or if you are still averaging .50 per photo per month. Thanks!

    trying to order and so far not successful.

  3. Connie Renda says:

    I bought the first edition of your ebook, and found it very informative. Is the third edition different enough with enough added information to warrant me buying it again? Thank you.
