Overview

A growing number of advertising agencies and corporations are using desktop publishing technology to develop marketing collaterals, print advertising, and Web graphics that promote products and services in a variety of creative ways. One necessary ingredient is economical, ready-to-use, high-quality photography that stands apart from all the tired old clip art out there. A stock photography company can provide these clients with 24/7 online access to an extensive portfolio of great photographs for use in their marketing materials. Whatever your clients’ subject matter, you will network with several photographers to build a keyword-searchable archive containing as many varied shots as possible—all at reasonable enough one-time usage fees to make a decent amount of money for both you and your “stable” of photographers. If you are adept at securing interesting, high-quality work and willing to offer it at a reasonable price, you can make a lot of money over and over again from work that is basically done once.
