Editorial photography turned into stock

Hello, this is my first blog , so bear with me . I wanted to share my experience with editorial, street photography turned into stock , since I think very few of us tackle this niche . I did some research and since there are so many royalty free stock images on this particular site and on the internet in general , I found it very difficult to come up with fresh ideas. So I wanted to take a risk and I was surprised to notice that my editorial photos had considerably more views than my non editorial ones. So I continued to upload this kind of photographs and now I have to say my editorial pics have a big part in my portfolio and bring me most of my income. rnThe conclusion is : I encourage you to take a risk since your editorial photos might be rejected and try to see if it's an opportunity you haven't explored just yet . Good luck and many sales to all . Thank you .

Yes, I agree as well.

I uploaded an editorial image of a not to popular holiday destination in Europe and it was licenced that same day not as a subscription image, so it was not just part of someone bulk download.

Keep up the good work and thanks again for sharing.

Raluca - I totally agree. My sales exploded once editorial images were allowed here on DT, and they make up the majority of my sales by far. Keep up the great work!

Useful (so few know about this little green button on the top-right of this page).

Thank you Raluca. It is useful information. I think i can learn a lot from your editorial photos.

A lot of my portfolio is editorial as well, they sell quite well, but some of the most expensive options are not available for editorials...

February 25, 2012


Your are right! It took me a long time to realize that. Now I have more and more editorial photos in my portfolio.

February 25, 2012


Your conclusion is correct.You and me have the same view. Good luck!

Really nice ones! I'm pretty new, but I took some editorial this Carnival and, WOW, am I surprised with the number of visits to the editorial ones! also one of my few sales was editorial, so I got a bunch on my machine to see if they suit. Also, my Nikon will never miss an event again.

Your pictures in this posting are great........... I wish someone had said this 3 years ago when I started........ think of all the work in photoshop it would have saved. Thank you. David.

February 24, 2012


Thank you. I have no editorial and it is something I really should look more closely at. :)

February 24, 2012


Same here, as the majority of my portfolio is editorial.

February 24, 2012


Thanks for sharing, I am actually thinking about the same thing. And thanks for adding me in your list.
