Stock photography

Nothings shows I am ready for rejection quite like submitting my first images to iStock. I’m looking forward to their feedback though, since one of the most difficult things to do as a photographer is to curate my own work. No, this is not what I submitted, I’ll keep you updated with the process :).

    • Thank you. Start by reading their requirements – if the photos are clean (in terms of quality) then the secret is to give them things they don’t get that often. I will share my experience maybe others will learn something from it.


    • I’ll keep you updated. I thought about it for a long time too. After I get their feedback, I am planning to submit to other platforms too and maybe start to build a stock portfolio. Well executed, clean conceptual photography is what they are mainly looking for, and I don’t have any of those unfortunately…There are so many restrictions too, it’s eye opening going through their guide.

      • Thank you 🙂 When they ask for ‘conceptual photography’ do they tell which concepts they would like to have photographers explore? Or do they just say it as a guideline and give creative freedom for the theme of the portfolio?
