About This Site

Welcome to my website. My name is Bill. This project originally started as a personal blog and a place to share my photography. Over the years it's transformed into a blog about selling stock photography and print-on-demand products. My goal is to help people make semi-passive income with their art.

So what is stock photography?

Many online marketplaces sell the usage rights to media like photos, videos, audio, and digital designs. After someone buys access to your work, the marketplaces split the profit with you.

So what is print-on-demand?

Print-on-demand (POD) marketplaces sell physical products like t-shirts, framed prints, and coffee mugs. These products feature work from various artists across the world. When a customer orders a product featuring your art, you get a commission on the sale.

My Strategy

I started shooting stock photography in 2010. Since then, I've learned that offering both physical (print-on-demand) and digital (photo usage rights) products is the most effective strategy. If you already take the time to process your work for one of these, your files are already prepped for both types of businesses. Another part of my approach is using multi-marketplace software to mass upload my photos across as many websites as possible, which gets lots of eyes on your art.
