Stock photography are images that are put into a database until someone finds a use for one of them. These people will pay for the image and the photographer will get paid on the download.
The main reason that someone sells stock photography is to make money. You definitely won't get rich overnight by selling your stock photography, but you can make a good chunk of change. It is important to have faith and remind yourself that as your images sit in the database, the money will start to roll in. The more images that you have on the stock photography sites, the better chance you have at making money.
The more photos you take, the more experience you will have. Remember practice makes perfect. Even if your first few photos get rejected, keep resubmitting after correcting the problem. As you gain more experience with stock photography, you will soon have more photos that are accepted.
You are able to take various images while submitting stock photography. You are not strictly forced to stick with a certain category. There are plenty of different categories to choose from. You can submit photos of nature, animals, objects, art, abstract, architecture, people, and many more.
You can gain exposure by submitting your images to stock photography sites. Using the same display name for all of your accounts is helpful so people can search for you on various sites.
Make selling stock photography a hobby for you. This is a great hobby that is fun for you and that can make you some extra money. Photography is probably already a hobby for you if you enjoy taking pictures of anything and everything.
