Well, I have talked about Dreamstime and GettyImages, now in this article, I am going to talk about BigStockPhoto.com. Yes, for some of you reading this article, you might think that it is just another stock photo sites and for those of you who are not keen of selling photos, then you might not be interested in this article at all.

I am writing articles about different stock photos sites because I have an idea that I would like to share with all of you. The idea of making money online using stock photos is great because it is truly an amazing way to generate residual income online.

"Stock photography has big potential to become a recurring and continuous income source which can ultimately replace our main source of income - Working Income"

Stock photography has been around for years and it will continue to stay for more years to come. Personally, I think that stock photography has bright future because the advancement of technology and rapid growth of industry will require a lot of great photos to represent their websites, apps and products. That is where stock photography comes into play. That is where we can make money and make a lot of money. (What is Stock photography and How to Make Money using Stock Photos.)

Back to BigStockPhoto, it is another great site to submit our photos to make extra money online. Since I have talked about Dreamstime, GettyImages and Fotolia, BigStockPhoto will be another site for us to generate another stream of income source using our photos. In total, now we have Dreamstime, GettyImages, Fotolia and BigStockPhoto and that is four sites to submit photos and make money.

BigStockPhoto.com is quite strict in terms of photo quality. Personally, I have around 20 photos submitted to BigStockPhoto but only around 5-6 photos are accepted. So, I think that the site is quite strict when they select photos to be placed on their site.

Benefits of using BigStockPhoto
Since BigStockPhoto is quite strict in the selection of the photos, it means that we have more chances of buyers buying our photos if our photos are accepted. Another benefits of using BigStockPhoto is that if your photos are accepted, then it has higher chances of getting approved in other stock photos sites. (I am not saying that other stock photo sites are not strict but I personally feel that BigStockPhoto is harder to approve  photos, read the next disadvantages section and you will understand.)

Disadvantages of BigStockPhoto
The approval of photos take very long time. I noticed that some of my photos are still in "Pending Approval" after waiting for one or two month. So, sometimes I feel annoyed because it takes so long to get approval.

So, that is my experience with BigStockPhoto. So far, I have not made any sales on my stock photos because my portfolio is rather small. I will be increasing the number of photos in my portfolio to try to get some sales. Stay tuned for the payment proof. :)
