So you can be sure that your photographs will get exposure and you will earn money from good quality and creative photography. The websites that pay for photography are listed below.

Apply to Dreamstime by registering and uploading your first files. Your application will be reviewed, and if you are approved, the images will be uploaded in your personal account.

As soon as your application is accepted, your files will be available for sale on the site. Upon review, the file will be included as a 0 level file. Depending on the quality of the shot, composition, subject and print size, the file will have more or less downloads than other similar shots. Once a file exceeds a certain amount of downloads, it automatically moved to a higher level and sells for a higher price. This approach is intended to give an equal chance to all files in the very beginning. It is also a way to encourage good shots that have fewer downloads, against other similar shots that have many downloads.

For each transaction, the photographer receives a 20-50 percent Revenue Share, which is calculated based on the net sales amount for the transaction. Exclusive images receive an additional 10 percent bonus, while exclusive photographers enjoy a 60 percent Revenue Share and an additional bonus of $0.20 for each approved submission.

Any photographer may request to be paid for his/her sales on as soon as the balance has reached $100 and the photographer submits a payment request from the Management Area. Payments  are made via bank, check, Paypal or Moneybookers.
