A Pittance for Creativity
Stock photographers are some of the most daring and creative visual artists in the world. They visit remote locations and explore dangerous terrains to capture moments and scenes. Often equipped with powerful cameras, this group has contributed to our understanding of the world and events around us.
However, their daring adventures and colorful images do not necessarily translate to huge returns. Most stock photographers rely on stock image platforms to sell their works. Some of the most popular stock image platforms around are Shutterstock, iStock, adobe stock, and Alamy.
Relying on stock image platforms often means that photographers settle for a pittance of the money made from their images and videos. Statistics show that stock image photographers only receive 15% to 40% of the revenues on their images per month. This roughly translates to between $0.02 and $0.25 per image per month.
These statistics indicate that stock platforms keep between 60% to 85% of all revenues that accrue from image sales.
NFT as a Better Alternative
NFT offers a better and more reliable alternative for stock image photographers. NFT creates an avenue for photographers to earn more and still maintain ownership over their works.
With NFT, image photographers can mint their works on a blockchain network. The blockchain serves as an immutable network that permanently stores the images that have been minted as NFT. This way, image photographers maintain 100% ownership of their works.
They can then sell their works directly to businesses and platforms that often buy stock images. They can set their prices and sell to their highest bidder. Additionally, stock photographers can benefit from NFT royalty. NFT allows them to set royalty percentages and earn perpetually from secondary market sales.
