Great News . Well done do you need a licence to sell images from a drone ?

Thanks Paul. This is a complex question, and the answer varies depending on which country you fly the drone in. It is usually more to do with whether you can fly the drone for commercial purposes, rather than sell the photographs from it.

In the US and UK, you will need a commercial drone license to fly a drone for "work" (that is; you fly expecting a fee for your services), which usually involves undertaking a course.

 

In Ireland - where I live - all drones should be registered with the IAA, but there is no such thing as a "professional" or "commercial" drone pilot. However, there are restrictions on how and where you can fly the drone. If you want to fly outside of those restrictions (this may be necessary to undertake commercial work) you will need permission from the IAA, who may grant you a license for that flight; and you have to attend a course to be in a position to apply for the license.

 

Oddly, in the US (not sure about the UK), it is legal to sell images or video taken with a drone used initially for hobby purposes and not for commercial use, after the fact. So, if you fly the drone for fun and then someone wants to buy a photo you took with it, you're not breaking the law.

Another one dropped in this morning; $50. Very close to breaking my all-time record for sales in one year with 6 months to go. Rock on!

Second sale in two months from a shoot I did at a Federal Appeals Court in Washington DC.  I was lucky to get access since cameras are not allowed in while courts are in session.

This one was for a book use.

It's a good feeling, getting a sale and even better is seeing your images in print. I still get that buzz 35 years or more after my first published image (and I'm now associate editor of a camera magazine).

My best advice, though, is to concentrate on two other S words. Not "sales", but "shooting" and "submissions". Keep taking photographs (with an eye on the content requests and blogs Alamy puts out) and keep submitting them. Don't worry about the sales, the more you shoot and submit, the more you sell.

Thanks, Steve. That's generally what I'm doing--I try to shoot everywhere I go and now I'm shooting with stock in mind too. I have way too many submissions to catch up on keywording, and lots more to submit when I have time. Never enough time for everything I need to do.

Hope I was helpful Lori. Keep up with the key-wording, even at the expense of sending in more images. You may have some great images but if no one can see them; they are of no use to anyone. :)

Yes, that is a good point, and getting farther behind will do me no good! Thanks!
