Tag Archive: selling stock photos


Better late than never, I did invest a few minutes to set a few goals for my print on demand and stock photo sites – let’s see what I can manage to achieve in 2021:

  • Reach Payment Threshold on Displate ($50)
  • Sell first stock photo via Wirestock (and to write a review about their service!)
  • Sell first piece of furniture on Society6
  • Reach Tier1000 on Amazon Merch (Haha, good joke!)
  • First sale on MiPic, Artpal, FineArtAmerica
  • Win at least two of the three open cases of copyright infringement with my photos via Copytrack (and to write a review about their service!)

 

Ha, you might remember this happy post from earlier this month:

My EyeEm Sales in November 2020

and guess what?  Copytrack has found the sold vintage Sauerland photo on BBC Serbia!

Село Оберкирхен је такође познато по суђењима осумњиченим вештицама.

We do feel honored! My husband thought I was crazy for uploading those old photos from the 1950s to EyeEm / Getty Images. MUHAHAHAAAAAA 😜😜😜

My husband did translate parts of the article with Google and it seems to be about the burning of witches in the last centuries including famous witch trials in Oberkirchen in the German Sauerland region – where this photo was taken. Very interesting read!

Hurray, I have sold one photo on Getty Images through EyeEm. I did earn less than 10 cents but hey, better than nothing. It’s an old photograph from the 1950s and something I never thought I would ever sell.

With the help of Copytrack I had found another one of my legally purchased stock photos on a travel website, it’s a whale watching picture from our Caribbean cruise a few weeks ago. It’s used for a handy article about what to do with just 48 hours on the beautiful Caribbean island St. Lucia, please check it out:

I am so very proud of my photo to be used for such an article! 🙂

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:
