Stock Photos!

Every now and then I check to see where my photos have been used, usually it’s just searching myself. Around January I’ll do a deep search with a Google Reverse Image search and that kicks up a lot more results but is more time consuming. While photography has provided the creative outlet that I really needed after quitting music, it’s been stock photography has given me a sense of photographic purpose. Creative photography and stock photography sometimes crossover in that the creative, or more artistic shots, that I never thought would sell as stock sometimes do! Even better, sometimes it’s like the gift that keeps on giving in that shots taken years ago still make money today. In fact, of all the shots below, only six of them were taken in the last two and a half years. Yes, navigating high seas of stock photography’s rules, the heavy editing that comes with removing trademarks or copyrighted material, can be a pain. However, in the end it’s been pretty rewarding and hopefully makes me a better photographer.Every now and then I check to see where my photos have been used, usually it’s just searching myself.
