Premium Stock vs Micro-Stock

The Adobe Stock agency is a Microstock agency. The pay is low per image sold or leased. I plan to now try to start posting to a Premium stock agency where the pay is much higher, but the acceptance requirements are much more stringent. I believe my photography belongs on a Premium Stock site. My future transportation and travel will be posted on the Premium Stock site.

Microstock agencies accept amateur photos and have a lower entry barrier. While the price they pay per image is quite low, it’s important to notice that most buyers are working with these platforms. Examples of microstock agencies include iStock, Dreamstime, and Adobe Stock.

Premium stock agencies demand higher qualifications and therefore it’s not as easy to sell your images from there. However, the payout for the photos is usually much higher than microstock. One of the most popular premium stock agencies is Getty Images.
