How to Make Money Shooting Microstock

Not Free

There's money to be made in the realm of stock photography, specifically the super affordable royalty-free phenomenon called "microstock". However, with so many great photographers jumping on the bandwagon, competition is stiff. In this informative session, I share the tips I learned during my six years as iStockphoto's chief evangelist so you can have a successful career shooting microstock. Learn what kind of photos sell, five shoot ideas guaranteed to produce results, and more. You'll also learn processing tips in Lightroom and Camera Raw, how to describe and keyword images so they're found, as well as how to save and submit your files. Here's what people are saying about this course:

"I really enjoyed Lesa's webinar. It gave me the encouragement and information I needed to apply to iStock. My photos were accepted on my first try, and I owe a lot of that to this class. Thanks Lesa!" Feb. 11, 2016 by TD

This is one of many video courses I created for creativeLIVE.com. The courses are extremely affordable (starting at $29; no subscription required), and you can watch the videos by either streaming them through your web browser or by downloading the movies — in either standard or high-definition. All classes include layered exercise files you can download and follow along with.
