(micro)STOCK: From Passion to Paycheck by Nicole S. Young

New eBook Available: (micro)STOCK: From Passion to Paycheck by Nicole S. Young is a jam-packed guide to producing, managing, and marketing your photographs for digital distribution on the micro-stock market.

There is a lot more to stock photography than uploading a bunch of pictures and hoping for the best. Nicole shares her industry experience and knowledge to help you better navigate the rules, procedures, and best practices to creating quality, useful imagery for the micro-stock market. She explains how to build and deliver on a successful portfolio concept, takes the mystery out of the different types of stock, like rights-managed (RM) and royalty-free (RF), and shares the ins/outs of licensing and releases.

And it doesn’t stop there! She interviews four successful stock photographers and illustrates how others are making the big bucks online. If you’re looking to grow your revenue through digital sales then building a successful micro-stock business is a great way to do it!

She’s is an accredited Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) in Photoshop CS5 and is a Help Desk Specialist with the National Association of Photoshop Professionals.

  2. I think that the title of the book sums it up perfectly. From passion to pay check. It shows that you can in fact make money from a hobbie in some respects. If you enjoy what you are doing and are making money from it, you are certainly are set up to make huge profits.
    I would recommend this book to anyone, thanks Klaus.

  3. I was tempted to buy this , but I was somewhat put off by the first review. I have a couple of photos placed with a stock library and I really could do with someone (a book, for example) to handhold me to getting organised. Is that what the focus of the book is?

  4. I always used places like revostock.com for images video and sound as I usually am combining them these days (for production use and social media campaigns).

  5. This is an excellent post on the subject, however in my opinion people who have a passion for a particular task are much better than others in achieving the monetary benefits from the task.

  6. Thanks for this wonderful post! There is really money in selling microstock photos. I’ve earned so much from (link removed by TechPatio – looks like a weird affiliate link!) , and I think that patience and passion helped me grow my portfolio to increase my sales. 🙂
