What is Stock Photography?
Lots of people in this world they don’t like to hire a photographer for their small jobs like newspaper, magazine, advertisement poster etc. So they buy from some websites, that is called loyalty free photography or Stock Photography. That means you will give rights to use your photography by others. And by using your photography they will pay you.

Lots of Business firm, educational or training institute, famous magazine etc all of them buy stock photos very often. Even discovery, National Geography etc. they buy stock photography too for their publication.
