Sell Stock Footage & Photography from ZERO to PASSIVE INCOME
BE A STOCK CREATOR.
One day I noticed a way out. I realized I could use my own creativity to make passive income online. I learned how to sell videos, photos, and vector illustrations of old finished projects so they could be used by buyers all over the world.
This is not only a career for photography & videography professionals. But a path for everyone starting with iPhone Photography, Drone Photography, Travel Photography or even iPhone Filmmaking.
So, here are 3 reasons you should be selling Stock Footage & Stock Photography.
Earn while you learn. It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional or beginner if you have a digital camera and know your way around it, it’s enough to get started. You can even get started with mobile photography
Bring dead projects to life. If you’ve been using your photo or video camera for a while or have been working on motion graphics or illustrations, you have money sleeping in your HD. Make them useful again by selling them to buyers on stock agencies like Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, VideoHive, Pond5, GettyImages, etc.
PASSIVE INCOME: Sales happen no matter if you’re working, sleeping or traveling. “You’re not only going to learn how to sell your footage & photos on stock agencies – it’s way beyond that. You’ll learn how to set your own passive income.”
This course was made for every creator, wherever you live or whatever the photo/video gear you have. I’ll show you the way to go from zero to passive income.
Beginners will learn how to do their first upload to a stock agency in less than 30 minutes after starting the course.
Advanced contributors will learn the advanced techniques of the pros to speed up the workflow and increase earnings.
I often find creators dealing with this struggle, just as I did. Hating their day jobs, not being able to enjoy what they’re doing and losing love for their art just because the need for money took over it. For many times I caught myself thinking if selling my time in exchange for money was what my life would always be about.
Getting more money won’t necessarily make you happier, that’s why we actually focus on slowly building financial freedom. Being financially free means you don’t need to waste your life doing things you don’t like just because you need the money. It means you don’t have to decide between projects looking for money only. Cause you don’t need that money desperately.
THIS ISN’T EASY MONEY
Selling Stock Footage & Stock Photography is far from a promise of easy money. If that’s what you’re looking for, I don’t believe this course is for you. This course is made for creators interested in selling stock videos, photos or even illustrations to buyers all over the world. By growing your portfolio in the right direction, you’ll be able to set a passive income source.
If you’re not sure yet this course is for you, I invite you to watch the free lessons. The investment to enroll in this class can be quickly repaid by taking action and implementing the techniques revealed.
Once I understood there is a way out, and after living it for more than 6 years, I took the decision to help other creators do the same. That’s what inspired me to create this course.
No matter if you’re the master of video production, color correction and all professional video editing techniques. Or if you fly a drone for aerial videography & aerial photography. Or maybe if you’re just getting started with mobile photography & iPhone filmmaking. If you are a creator, than this course is for you.
