The popularisation of small business and private websites offers the photographer a large and potentially lucrative pool of clients. However, small businesses usually means small budget. How can the photographer reach these clients, and how can this small budget be conciliated with the photographer’s higher production costs?

Stock photography offers the solution. Yet, many photographers fail to explore this market.

This workshop introduces you to the world of stock photography and to the financial benefits of investing time to shoot theme based photographs and tap into an unlimited source of income. The workshop focuses on microstock. By the end of the 9 hours you will have the necessary tools and knowledge to begin submitting your own photographs to Stock Agencies & Image Libraries.
