  1. Hi, I am new to stock photography, basically because I like to learn a lot about photography, experiment, etc. and I thought why not start something that eventually throws out a few bucks. I am not sure if this is still possible from 2019 or if agencies took over and an individual amateur photographer has no chance at all to gain visibility. However, as a start I am asking myself the following question: Should I focus on quantity (shoot/upload as many good photos as possible) or on trend by shooting only specific required photos? Usually stock platforms even give hints on what kind of photos and motives are requested. What is your suggestion on that? Markus
  2. From what I can see there are a number of factors that affect stock sales. Since Alamy ensures a minimum quality level is met by all contributors I’ll ignore it as a factor. Subject matter and proper keywords are also clearly important but for the sake of this discussion let’s assume subject and keywords are adequate. Looking through the forum discussions I see constant references to a minimum portfolio size as being an important factor in regular sales, but I also wonder if there isn’t also a time component affecting sales. If say, 3000 images represent the smallest portfolio that will generate consistent monthly sales, how long must those images be posted before they begin to generate a significant number of sales? A month? six months? a year? Also, is 3000 images a fair estimate of the minimum portfolio size needed to generate regular sales? Lynn Palmer lynn-palmer.artistwebsites.com
