How to Use Stock Images in Your Business Photography Portfolio

Are you a photographer looking to make money from your work? Selling your images on stock platforms is a great way to generate income. Having a portfolio of incredible images on a stock site will make your photos more visible and can often lead to more customers. But how do you get started? The answer is simple: buy stock images from a stock photo agency and download them directly from their website. That way, they're covered by the stock photo site's license agreement and you can legally use them in all the ways accepted by royalty-free licenses, including for commercial purposes, such as marketing materials and more.

Once you have your stock images, you can start building your portfolio. You can blog about your daily life as a photographer, the photography business, or anything that allows you to show your images in an interesting way. You can also create social media accounts and post your images there. This will help you reach a wider audience and get more exposure for your work.

Finally, don't forget to promote your portfolio. You can use paid advertising or organic methods such as SEO and social media marketing. This will help you get more customers and make more money from your photography business.
