Two years ago I applied to become a stock contributor with Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, and Pond5. Since then, I’ve learned a lot about how to shoot, edit, and sell stock footage.

It’s a great source of passive income, and when done correctly, you can really make some great side money as a filmmaker.

When I first began, I was so curious to know how much money you could actually make selling stock photography and stock video. With the upfront work involved in shooting, uploading, and key wording content, you need to know if it’s worth your time and effort.

I began this blog as a way to share my own experience. Each month I’m sharing a monthly income report with exactly how much money I’m making from each site.

I’ve been having so much fun during this entire process that I decided to share other helpful hints I’ve learned along the way. I hope you enjoy!
