Stock Photography NOT Assignment Photography Doing photography as an assignment is not the same as doing photography for stock photos. In an assignment, the client tells the photographer what to shoot and thereafter pays him/her for everything that is involved in the process, e.g., camera equipment, SD cards, and photographs. The assigned photographer usually follows the contract or agreement with the client, to take only the specified photos. Stock photographers are neither paid not commissioned to shoot but shoots at their own liberty. Stock photography has more wider applications than assigned photography. Stock libraries are an excellent source of cheap stock pictures available to anybody. Different People May Buy the Same Stock Photo Because a stock image can be used several times by several different people, it can be sold and bought many times over. Publishers may need stock photos for illustrations, authors may need art photographs instead of sketches on their book covers, and designers may opt for new stock images for their projects. Life-span of Stock Images Depends on How Often Used The greater the need for the stock image, the longer will be its life span. If your stock image is unique, relevant, or of excellent quality, there is a good chance that it will live long. Historical events become part of the archives of stock photography. Many other stock images simply become irrelevant as time passes by. File size is also an important consideration in stock photography. Making Money out of Stock Photography Posting stock photos online is not a guarantee that they will sell, but the possibility is there that it will. The more you stock, the greater the possibility that people will use your stock photos. It is therefore important that you build a large archive of high quality images, as a good source of alternative income.
