Simple, colorful, graphic. I shot this for a accounting firm’s brochure. It was shot on 4×5 color transparencies and I was paid $500. After two years of usage I was able to list the image with a stock agency. The very first sale as a stock image was for $1500 of which I received $750. It has sold many times over the years. You hear it so often, but owning the copyright to your images is so important for your future.
