Stock Photographer/Digital Artist
The demand for quality digital imagery increases as fast as technology advances. Companies cannot keep up with the need for fresh content on their social media feeds and digital marketing campaigns. But sadly, they rarely hire photographers and pay them top-dollar for assignments anymore. They license images from stock photography libraries for their many visual content needs such as marketing materials, social media feeds, product packaging and more.
You have two choices. Spend your time bitching about the industry changes, or use your time productively to learn how these changes can benefit you.
Stock agencies have opened up commercial photography opportunities to artists of all levels, in every corner of the world. Let me teach you find them.
Gain access to the complete system that consistently makes me approximately $4,000/mo in royalties
And my monthly earnings are continually rising!
I will not mislead you with false promises of quick and easy riches. This is real hard work. To be successful, you must have a very clear understanding of what sells and what doesn't. You must know how to produce a large quantity of images that are highly valuable in the commercial market. This could take many years to figure out on your own.
I've spent the past 7 years figuring out a system that works, so you don't have to.
Image licensing is not for everyone. Allow me to give you all the info you need to figure out if it's a good fit for you, before you waste much of your precious time trying to figure it out on your own.

|Susan is one of those rare mentors that will likely change the course of your photography life from the moment you begin the course. Bluntly, Susan created a course that is worth much more to a photographer in the first day than the cost of buying it many times over. The content is organized and presented in an interesting and compelling framework, while also being exciting and practical for anyone interested in entering the world of commercial stock photography. This is truly a fantastic class for any level of photographer and comes with my highest recommendations.
