Microstock Earnings through June

July 21, 2017  •  7 Comments

My monthly microstock earnings came in at $807 for June. Overall, earnings are on a downward spiral. My Shutterstock earnings, in particular, are taking a big hit.

Following is a summary of my monthly earnings:

Hi Olivier...I have about 5,500 images now on Shutterstock. Dreamstime and iStock have about 2,500 each. Shutterstock and Fotolia have about 500 each. I hope this helps. Glenn

That is some very interesting data. I just recently started in microstock and from you figures I can see clearly I should put more emphasis on shutterstock and Istock.
But in order to better interpret these data, it would also be very useful to know how many photos you have online in each of these agencies.

Hi there, I just started visiting your blog, I love that you post your numbers! I'm a vector artist, no photography, and you've inspired to keep track of my own numbers this way - I was using Evernote, but I've sinced switched to a spreadsheet. It's SO much easier to see trends - thank you! Looks like you've got a pretty strong side business built, and your photography is absolutely stunning!! Keep up the good work! :)

That's interesting...I may have to try capturing some images from these institutions along the way. The bulk of my microstock portfolio are captured at the larger tourist attractions at this point.
