How to make money from selling your stock photography with us

This includes Photographers and Graphic Designers wanting to sell images, in Jpeg format and Vector Graphics.

Your creative work could be worth money. With the boom of technology and the easy of loading and presenting copyrighted material online, the stock photography industry is a perfect environment for people to unlock value in their creative work.

Not for Zombies provides an safe online environment for you to host and publish your creative work. We are skilled retailers of stock images and drive large volumes of traffic to our site. We license the use of your images and remit a royalty payment to you for downloads of your images.

The interface between you and the customer is web based, providing an easy-to-use environment for you to upload and manage your content. This in turn provides customers with an easy search, selection and download mechanism.

Preparing the Photograph

Before uploading your photographs to Not for Zombies, you need to make sure you comply with our image guidelines.
A stock photo is an image that someone could conceivably want to use for something. Imagine if you’ve taken a photo of a pretty girl holding a mobile phone to her shoulder, and typing on her laptop at the same time. If you have a model release for the picture (i.e. if the model doesn’t mind her photo being used, and you’ve got a piece of paper confirming that), there are a thousand and one uses for the picture. A newspaper may be doing an article about stress. A magazine may need an image to illustrate the dangers of mobile phone use. An job advert might need to appeal to a female audience. The possibilities are endless, but key to all of this is your photo.

Choosing Keywords

If you don’t index your photographs with good keywords, you will never get good exposure. You are competing against more than one million pictures and about 5,000 photographs added each week.
Put a lot of effort into the keywords that you use. If you have good pictures that customers can use, attaching good keywords will give you the best rating and maximum downloads. So, how do you select your keywords? The best way is to look at similar photographs uploaded by other users to get ideas. You can also use a thesaurus to find synonyms. Do not use keywords that make no sense or have no relevance to the image.

Getting Paid

Once you have accumulated a fixed amount of money you can get paid. Usually this amount is between $75-$100. You can get a cheque, bank transfer or use paypal.

Filtering and Choosing Photographs
• When you are considering your portfolio, it is important for you to consider the following point: does your photograph has a value as an illustration, or as a concept, or idea that a customer can benefit from?

• For example, a photograph of a businessman in a suit climbing a mountain will sell better that a shot of a mosquito on a pinhead.

• A lady holding a disk in one hand and a handful of dollar notes on the other hand, will sell better the a photograph of a hippopotamus chasing a crocodile.

• It’s important to remember that this has nothing to do with the quality of the photographs. Not for Zombies and our customers are looking for clear ideas and concepts that their clients can use.
