What are stock photos?

american bald eagle stock photos Stock Photos are images which can be used and reused for commercial design purposes in exchange for a license fee. Many book publishers, magazines, advertisement agencies, web designers, and corporate creative groups use stock photos instead of hiring a photographer, and carrying the production risk themselves, like weather related delays.

There is a large selection of stock photos on the market today, mostly distributed by mega stock agencies. These Stock Agents often use other agencies to distribute the photos, which means the commission is also distributed more widely, and invariably leaves the photographer with a very small profit from the sale of their own stock photos. Although the stock agencies are thriving on this scheme, the photographer has a hard time to survive. For this reason more high class photographers are selling their own stock photos now. By buying stock photos from the photographer you ensure that a stock photographer can survive and continue to shoot rare and unique stock photos. Usually you can get very exclusive photographs direct from the photographer for a reduced price. Stock Photos are the bread and butter for a serious, professional photographer.
