Recommended Reading & Equipment

Here I list links to information and equipment that will help you get started in Microstock.  If you do not find what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us here.

The best candidate for micro stock is someone who already had a DSLR, knows how to use it correctly, and likes photography in general.  I understand the person looking for a “stay at home” job or the mommy wanting to do something extra from home; but its not easy work.  Microstock is not a get rich quick scheme, or a “stay at home mommy” scheme, its a real industry for photographers that just happens to be very flexible.

Now, with that said, I would never try to discourage someone from doing something they feel they can.  There are many people making a living from microstock that had never taken anything more than a snapshot with a simple camera.  If that’s you, you can do it if you try but you will have a lot of learning to do.  That’s where this page comes in.  Below I list books, equipment, and sites that will help you get started.  Lets begin.
