In May 2019 I had three sales on EyeEm through Getty Images. I only earned a few cents though, no big hit.

EyeEm Sales May 2019

EyeEm Sales May 2019


Both photos are rather average and not outstanding memories from our Caribbean cruise a few years ago. But it seems that these unusual views are what customers are buying. Not the dream vacation white sandy beach with coconut palm tree and turquoise blue water. Nope… A view over an old marina on Isla Margarita and a view onto a harbour shot from the cruise ship with a crowd of tourists.

I wonder where I will find those images online… 🙂


Getty Images has just accepted many new photgraphs from us through EyeEm and it’s a total of 399 stock photos now! This is a milestone I am very happy about!

Do you sell stock photos 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*

During our Caribbean Cruise a few years ago – way before hurricane Irma destroyed a lot – we have enjoyed one lazy day on the island Antigua. It was one of the most beautiful stops during the cruise, really worth a second – longer – visit!

I am uploading a whole series to EyeEm and GettyImages, why not check them out?

In 2010, my husband and I have been on a USA vacation and shot gazillions of photos of the Grand Canyon. Back then, we cursed the rather bad weather with lots of clouds and even hail and snow. Now with stock photography in mind, we do have rather rare shots compared to all the “good weather photography” that you usually find on the net.

If you are interested in these beautiful weather conditions, please check out my portfolio on Getty Images:

So I have joined EyeEm one year ago, in order to start a new adventure in trying to sell stock photos. With gazillions of vacation photos on our own media server at home (99% shot by my husband) and very limited time on my hands for adding new designs to my various print-on-demand shops, this had seemed like an easy endeavour.

And yes, it was. EyeEm makes it super easy to upload and tag your photos since they do recognize what’s the topic of your photo and suggest suitable tags. It’s a recent feature for the app version, I am using the computer version most of the time – because that’s where I have easier access to our photos.

Almost all of my uploads also add their geo tags which is important for potential customers. Also, of over 3,000 uploaded photos, more than 2,000 have been accepted into the EyeEm Marketplace. Of these, almost 500 were accepted for premium and almost 250 are actually already live on Getty Images. Other photographers do have a better ratio but I am happy about it since I usually upload almost all photos from a topic. I only weed out the ones that were a mistake, e.g. when feet or other things were cut of. Hubby tends to do that, you might say he has a thing for cutting off feet 😉

What I also like about EyeEm is the fact that you can upload photos without the intention of adding them to the market. I did this with my digital altered photos of the Santa Monica Pier. Why? Because I do have all EyeEm uploads imported into Copytrack in order to find illegal copies of my works. That way, I do get an overview of what copycats do with my work.

And my sales? I had 3 sales within my first year. Not too bad for the first year, especially since adding photos to Getty seems to take ages. All three sales had been through the Premium Collection on Getty Images and earned me a total of $15.00:

Guess what I found on Zazzle’s front page? They are featuring the shop “Iconic Seattle” with photos from Getty Images and it just suits my current obsession (greysession?) as a Fifty Shades fan. Sorry, it’s the truth! In case you haven’t checked out my own new shop category “Fifty Shades of Seattle” yet, what are you waiting for?

Ok, let’s start with Getty Images, here are the most beautiful products with their Seattle photos:
