Todays High Five! has got some recommendations for microstock newcomers from our contributor Mariia Sniegirova, photographer and postcard designer with three years’ experience in microstocks. To view Mariia’s portfolio, please follow this link.
1. Work hard. You should already know that working in the microstock industry takes a lot of time. Be aware that you will have to work as much as you would at a full-time office job – or harder! Of course, the quality of your work is very important; but the stock business demands quantity as well. Every day, thousands of images are uploaded to stock websites, and even the most brilliant image can get lost among the others. That is why, if you really want to earn, you have to produce a large number of images.
