The damaging myth that mainstream stock photography has been pushing for years, but it’s just not true.
Why you should never settle for a bad traditional stock library deal, just to stay in the game.
How 100’s of photographers just like you are selling photography for fair and reasonable prices to quality buyers.
How to access 3 practical strategies that you can implement in your own photography business today.
Mainstream stock photography is big business these days. Shareholder profits are the only measure of success and photographers have largely become expendable content providers.
Supply images at this price or we’ll find someone else who will…
It’s not all doom and gloom though.
There are plenty of photo buyers who don’t like this approach any more than we do. Professionals who are sick of the discount-superstore approach and know that if they want continued access to quality images they need to support quality photographers.
So we believe it’s vital that photographers know that they do have other options and don’t need to join the race-to-the-bottom just to stay in the game.
Whether you plan to get involved with GlobalEye today or not, please help us get the word out that photographers do have options and you don’t have to settle for the appalling deals on offer from the mainstream stock libraries.

We do things quite differently to the mainstream stock libraries and while we’re happy to share our ideas & strategies, we do need to keep it manageable. The registration step helps us limit access to EXPERIENCED photographers who are SERIOUS about selling their photography with us. There’s no cost or obligation, but we do want you to think it through.
Good news… we don’t require previous business experience. As long as you shoot strong, interesting images and your attitude is totally professional, we’ll work with you and get you up to speed on the business of selling your photography ASAP.
To give you a useful assessment we really need to review your work in the context of a ‘stock’ submission. Most people will have some great photos on their website, but they won’t all be ‘stock.
So we’ll ask that you read our submission guidelines and submit a small selection of images that match our requirements.
We’re looking to establish a long-term business partnership here, so you should be prepared to invest some time and effort to make that happen.
Yes and no. Commission stock libraries do need to make sales, but they don’t care who’s photos sell. What you’ll usually find is 20% of the photographers make 80% of the sales. So a commission system offers no guarantee of sales.
GlobalEye photographers contribute a modest upfront subscription instead… less than a dollar a day… so they keep everything they make and we have a very real incentive to make sure every single photographer makes sales!
That’s why we ask for an application… so can both be sure you’re ready. And if it turns out you’re not quite ready to start selling your photography, the information in our Photographer’s Area will help you identify any areas you need to work on… so you can come back later and submit a Membership Application when you are ready.
You should allow about an hour to go through the Business Presentation and the Photographer’s Information pages to get a good understanding of how GlobalEye operates (We’re not your typical stock library!)
The Photographer Application usually takes about 20-40 minutes to prepare and submit, and we’ll get back to you after that… usually within 24-48hrs of submitting.
If everything is satisfactory, we can have you up and running 5-10 minutes after that!
We already have amazing photographers on board who are working in almost any field or location you can imagine, so chances are this is already working for someone very much like you. Your best option though, is simply to submit an application and we’ll give you our best assessment of your suitability for our stock library.
It probably takes less time than you’d expect! In fact, our top performing photographers average just 4.5 hours per month on the GlobalEye website.
Once your application is approved, there’s a short Set Up Tour to get all the essentials covered and introduce you to the tools and features in your account. After that our Smarter-Not-Harder action plan will show you how you can focus your efforts on a few simple tasks that are proven to get the best possible results in the shortest possible time.
That said, this is a serious business proposition and your results will be a reflection of the effort you put in long term. If you’re not prepared to make a real commitment to work the system, it’s probably best if you take a pass on this for now.
