A couple weeks ago, I saw an interesting class on Creative Live...about making money with micro stock, like with iStockPhoto.
I was curious if anyone on the list here sold photos through this, or other stock image sites...if so, what are you general thoughts?
If you would, could you give advice to someone who would just be starting..how to make you first images acceptable for the initial application to become a contributor to the site?
What site do you like the best and why? Is there a money difference between them? Do you just do stock photos or have you done video too?
Just looking both for comments on the game, and any advice you would be willing to part with to a noob that is thinking it might be fun to try.
I'm sure that the big money was done a few years ago early on, but I'd just be thrilled to sell a couple photos, and if it turned out to be a little beer money, well it would justify all the tax write offs I do with my company on the photo equipment so far....etc.
Thanks in advance,
