Join the Symbiostock Network!
Symbiostock is open source and free to download. Use the FAQ or videos on how to install the Symbiostock theme to get your site working. If you’re a photographer who’d like your own website, please join us!
While Symbiostock is easy to set up, for photographers lacking the time or technical interest, we offer a Symbiostock Installation Service. Or, if you’d rather avoid the cost and work of maintaining a website altogether, consider joining the Symbiostock Network Co-operative
When your site’s ready, announce it either thru the Symbiostock Community forums, MicrostockGroup.com forums, or leave a message on our Symbiostock site. Once you’re added to the database, we’ll automatically update the database using the Symbiostock XML files from your site.
How do I promote my site?
Symbiostock is an open source project that allows photographers to sell their work directly. We’re a network of independent photographers, illustrators and artists who license our royalty-free and rights-managed images.To make it easier for customers to find the right image, we are also linked to each other. So, a search for a “mountain” on one Symbiostock site also shows images from other members of the network. However you discover the image,
you can be sure you’re directly supporting the artists.
Microstock Photography Agencies
Another more traditional approach is through stock agencies. It’s quick, easy and rewarding to sell your images online. Microstock photography agencies display your images. They take care of sales. You get royalties. Whether you’ve got 10 or 1000, you can find a site that handles all the selling details. You just upload your images. Then collect the checks! You can spend your time doing the fun parts. Travel more. Work less.
