If you have never heard of Depositphotos you should really check their website. This is a nice gem with truly nice photos and footage.

Depositphotos has been around since January 2009 and has grown a lot since then. You should take a look at their beautiful About Us page where they present their history in an impressive timeline.

Let’s crush some numbers first:

  • 185+ million files
  • 14,000,000 customers
  • clients in over 190 countries
  • 57,300 downloads per day
  • 90,510 contributors

Why you should try Depositphotos

They have both on-demand as subscription-based programs. Both have pros and cons, but it will let you, as a contributor, benefit from both of them (higher price per download for on-demand, higher volume for subscriptions).

You can sell your pics, photos, illustrations, art, and footage, so there are opportunities for digital artists, illustrators, and designers, videographers, and photographers of course.
They even sell music and audio files, but I haven’t found much information for contributors on that topic.

Once you become a contributor you will have access to tools that will help you become successful. 
Think about things as market insights, which lets you study your target audience. You can then adjust what you create to meet the demands of the market more.

Depositphotos will give you suggestions based on upcoming events and holidays.
