Stock Photography Sales Statistic April 2012

This is my stock photography sales statistic for April 2012. You can find a complete list of stock photography agencies that I work with here.

These are for me the best 4 performing stock agencies for April 2012:
  1. Shutterstock
  2. Zazzle
  3. DepositPhotos
  4. Dreamstime
April was very weak with a decrease of 27% compared to March, and only a 2% increase compared to April 2011. It was the best month ever for Stockfresh, and Photospin.

(This statistic include referral earning at the different agencies)

Hey Henrik,
can you say how much do you earn ech month ?(and for how many photos)?
I'm a new photographer, and I still dont see great income from these sites..

I have a little over 2000 images in my portfolio. But it varies from agency to agency, because they accept and reject different image.

The important part in this statistic is not so much how much I make with it. I supply all my images to all the agencies I work with. And I do not create one type of image. With this statistic ( specially for a beginner ) you can see that it is not a strait line up. There are ups and downs. If you looking for a new agency to work with, then it may help your decision. Or if you have similar results, you find the right agency to drop or to concentrate on.

But mostly I like to show this also as a motivation. If you keep adding and you are willing to learn, then you will achieve an increase of income over time.
