Stock Photography:The Beginning of a new journey.

in ntopaz •  4 months ago  (edited)


Last August 7th I decided to take new paths in the art of photography. One of those paths is Stock photography. And I started doing it on my favorite site, Pexels.

Stock Photography is the supply of photographs, which are often licensed for specific uses. - Wikipedia.


I noticed that when I needed to make a presentation it was very difficult to find good/quality images online. So, I started making them for my personal use a couple of years ago when I was studying in dental school.

This time, I started by uploading a photo that I had originally shared here on the blockchain. It was a natural and simple photo that could be used as a wallpaper. To my surprise, it became one of the most viewed photos and gave me the confidence to continue sharing my work there and of course here as well.

Got any pics of waves for my @nftwav project? I have no art, photography or design talent but i can do programming. I'll need help making things look nice. :)

I don't have pictures of waves right now, but I do think I can help you to make things look good. I'll think about what I can do for you. :B

Thanks Dear W! <3 You have great artistic talent and although I have none myself, I can definitely see it when others have it. And you have it. :)

Great photos!
Do you upload photos to other stock agencies? I wasn't aware of pexels but it seems it offers the images for free?
As I do stock photography as well, monetization of my work is very important to me. Thank you and good luck!

Pexels works with a donation system. I'm just there for the moment, I know about Shutterstock, and I think Adobe has a site dedicated to it as well.
My pleasure. Thank you so much for the good wishes.

Ah, I see, thank you. I don't know if and how that would work, generally people avoid to pay for something they could take for free, but who knows... I upload to Adobe, Shutterstock, Alamy, iStock and another ten agencies... If you have any questions, shoot. Best of luck!

I'm crossing fingers. It'd be great to monetize on Pexels because I love the site. I didn't know about Alamy and iStock, I'll research that. Thank you so much for sharing this information with me and also for offering your help as well!
