Creative (non-editorial) stock photography

As a self-employed photojournalist, even when I don’t have something to do (an assignment), I HAVE something to do. Beside the “business” side (billing, self-promotion, etc), a freelancer always have to try to find new markets and new ways to make money out of his skill.

I recently told you about going back to my archive to put my photos into stock bank. Now it’s done, so as soon as the weather is cooperative, I go shoot headquarters, landmarks, or anything that might sell.

And when it’s snowing, raining, or when it’s just cloudy? I just started to try a new market: creative (non-editorial) stock photography. Earlier this week, I selected the theme “coffee” and spent a couple of hours setting up a little studio and shooting everything in the apartment that was coffee related. Some example below, complete sets of coffee stock photography on my Photoshelter page.
