Tag Archive: bestselling stock photo


I have just read an interesting blog post from a stock photographer who randomly shares websites that have bought his photos and are displaying them within a news article or alike. I thought this was a brilliant idea and I would love to do this aswell with my stock photos 🙂

The latest find is a Yahoo Finance news article about student housing (?) in France and the author has used one of my Angers photos with empty streets:

The original photograph can be found here on EyeEm and is also available through Getty Images:

During June 2020 I was able to sell three stock photos on Getty Images through EyeEm:

I have sold one photo again – directly on EyeEm without Getty or any other agency involved. This time I have sold a photo of my daughter unwrapping birthday presents.

I totally forgot to blog about stock photo sales on EyeEm. Oh my… not one thought crossed my mind until now. EyeEm is not a big earner for me, but it is small and steady and I am still hoping for it to increase over time.

In March 2019, I had one sale of a rather popular image on Getty Images:

Ok, “saleS” is a bit too much since I only had ONE sale on EyeEm but it was a small sale on Getty Images which tend to make me feel rather proud about it. Why? Due to the HUGE competition on Getty Images, that’s why 🙂

And I have sold a photo which I had already sold three times during 2018, so this is kind of my first bestseller 🙂

The original photograph on EyeEm can be seen – and purchased – here for a probably smaller fee *cough*
