FOCUS ON CREATING, WE HANDLE THE REST
What is MystockIMages
MystockImages is a stock photography service dedicated to photographers and filmmakers - and has been working with major agencies for years
We work exclusively with Getty Images, and partner company iStock, while managing all aspects of post production for our global community of contributors, including file uploading, trimming, editing, color grading, file naming, photoshopping and metadata keywording.
With MystockImages representation, you can focus on shooting and living adventures and let us handle the rest!
WHY UPLOAD YOUR WORK TO MystockImages?
We find that a lot of photographers and filmmakers have large libraries of great work on hard drives or computers, when they could in fact be generating a revenue stream through stock sales.
With a huge demand for online content in the marketplace, your JPEGs or video clips could be circulating the commercial & world and bringing in a nice passive income, rather than be buried in archives.
Also - going forward - shooting new stock media allows you to create work in your own time and with total creative freedom.
BUILD A RESIDUAL INCOME STREAM
Your photos and video have the potential to be earning you a passive income. We specialize in maximizing the return you can earn from your media content.
We'll help you establish and grow a steady scalable source of passive income.
All you have to do is submit your media and we’ll take care of the rest.
WHAT CAN I EARN?
Through our exclusive agreement with Getty Images, you are guaranteed a higher royalty rate while working with us than you would be by uploading directly to Getty.
Working with MystockImages is easier, faster and more profitable than doing it alone.
Submitting to stock agencies is a time consuming and draughting process, However if done right it can be incredibly rewarding. We relieve the work and risk of submitting to stock and provide personified guiding on what to shoot to maximise returns
WHERE WILL MY IMAGES GO?
Getty Images are the stock photography industry leaders, serving more than 1.5 million customers in over 200 countries. Their vast distribution network ensures your work is seen by the maximum number of potential customers globally.
Your images can be purchased for advertising, marketing, apps, websites, social media, TV and movie productions and for many other uses.
When a buyer chooses images, they purchase a license that allows them to download your files for commercial use - resulting in a sale for you, the contributor.
Can I still use my images and video even if on Getty?
Yes! Your content will be licensed to customers around the world on your behalf while you hold the copyright.
Can I sell images on my own that are similar to the one Mystockimages accepts?
No! What you submit to mystockimages can't be sold somewhere else.
What can I shoot?
Anything! That is the beauty. Total creative freedom. But the more universal the appeal, and the more conceptual the content, the more likely sales will soon materialize
How do I submit content to MystockImages?
Google Drive, DropBox, WeTransfer, Hard Drive
BECOME A MODEL
If you are interested in working with us then send us a few pictures or a link to your web page, (it is very important for us to see a photograph of you smiling, don’t send us an application without sending us your smile).
We pay a once off model fee. It does not change depending on how the footage or photos are used.
What is Stock Photography/Videography?
“Stock photography is the supply of photographs licensed for specific uses. It is used to fulfill the needs of creative assignments instead of hiring a photographer, often for a lower cost. Today, stock images can be presented in searchable online databases. They can be purchased and delivered online.
Why do I need to sign a Model Release?
Model releases help protect the contributor, the model, the agency and the end user alike. And even if you shoot yourself, you’ll need a release. With the proper paperwork, everyone knows what to expect from each other, and should any disagreements arise later on, this document can be the deciding factor.
