    Default How to sell photos through agencies/galleries?

    Hi there, I am an amateur photographer and feel like selling off a few photos.
    I am only a secondary sch student but feel like making money to buy more equipment,
    so is there anyway to contact an agency or gallery that may be able to sell my photos to clients? I mean, its up to them to decide if my photos are good enough but is there a way to get an interview or review?

    Thanks..

    So there you go!
    Please tell me what you think and if my photos are commercial?
    (Am I using the right word?)
    For those wondering I use a D40x with kit lens and 55-200mm and 10-20.
    I have flash but I hardly use it.
    I also have photos of every single historical place in Beijing including the Great Wall because I was on an school exchange trip for a long period of time there.
    I also have photos of their culture.
    So do reply. Thanks

    Photrade.com. Free website to share and sell photos. Best place on the web and I'm not just saying that because I work there.

    Here are six very popular stock photo agents in the market:

    istockphoto.com is the most popular one, and also, it is very hard to get photos accepted at the beginning
    http://www.istockphoto.com

    Shutterstock is based on subscription mainly
    http://www.shutterstock.com

    Dreamstime is very similar to istockphoto, but here you can submit 200 photos/day
    http://www.dreamstime.com

    The above three agents are the top three agents in stock photo market.


    Others include:

    Fotolia
    http://www.fotolia.com

    Bigstockphoto
    http://www.bigstockphoto.com

    Personally, I like dreamstime most. The management of photos is easier in dreamstime.
