Photography is the art, application and practice of creating images either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of photographic film.

Stock photos are professional photographs of common places, landmarks, nature, events or people that are bought and sold on a royalty-free basis and can be used and reused for commercial design purposes.

The photographer has ownership of the images unless he has given exclusive rights to a photo purchaser.

Stock photography is a cost-effective method for designers to obtain professional photos and images without the costs of hiring a photographer directly.

Turn stock photography into money by submitting your images to various stock photo sites.
