Good luck. And hopefully Facebook will not play one more time.

Shutterstock – this is the big one. For most stock photographers, Shutterstock consistently outperforms all other agencies. If you are thinking of getting started as a microstock photographer, make sure Shutterstock is at the top of your list to join. For most independent contributors, Shutterstock consistently brings in around 40-50% of a stock photographer’s monthly earnings. That’s pretty impressive!
They are the industry leader in many ways, and are constantly tweaking their website, on both the buyer and contributor sides to improve the experience. All these positives leads to a very positive Shutterstock review. Thus, they get our highest rating of any agency!
Highest earning agency for most stock photographers each month
Consistent, regular sales ranging from $0.25 to $120 per sale (depending on your royalty tier)
Realistic level-based earnings achievements means you won’t be stuck at $0.25 for long
Relatively tough agency from a review perspective that will help improve your images long-term
Massive worldwide exposure
Easy to use website with new features often making their debut
Facebook deal that treats contributors fairly
Shutterstock Review – Conclusion
Shutterstock’s search model favours new images quite heavily, although perhaps not as much as it used to. They have introduced new search functionality recently that has changed things around a bit, but certainly not broken anything (unlike some site’s new ‘features’ that seem to only make things worse). Each contributor will notice different things with search, but in the end it all seems to even out so that with any new search change you never get punished too heavily.
The way Shutterstock report your statistics as a contributor (downloads, revenue, gross totals etc) was updated recently. While it’s a little more aesthetically pleasing, it has made looking at a large list of sales more difficult. Rather than all being on one page, you now need to click through to extra pages if your daily sales are decent. Thankfully it is still presented almost in real-time (updated about every 15mins). Compared to agencies that only report sales once a month, this feels like how it should be.
They even have the Shutterstock Contributor app available for your smart-phone or tablet. Although the app could do with some work, it is being updated frequently and I am finding myself using it more and more.
