This half-day session in East London will start with a comprehensive introduction to creating and selling photographs for stock followed by a 2 hour photowalk to create some content to get you started. The location has been chosen to cover streets which can also be added to the Bleeding London project database.

  • Want to give your photography another purpose and earn some money at the same time?
  • Heard about stock libraries but didn’t know how to get started?
  • The mysteries of microstock will be revealed in this talk

After attending this event, participants will be able to understand whether they want to start to create stock photography for sale and how to go about it as well as supporting the Bleeding London project.

The session will start promptly at 12.00 midday with a talk on microstock which will include suggestions and ideas for subject matter.

After the talk, participants will follow suggested routes in the local area covering some of the streets which are still required to be photographed for Bleeding London and, on the way, looking for microstock opportunities.

Attendees will reconvene back at the venue for a debrief and an opportunity to have questions answered as well as reporting back on the streets covered and the subjects captured for stock

The event is open to members and non-members and is free to attend.

Please arrive at the venue promptly at 12 o’clock, and bring an A-Z London map.
