"Anticipating what sells is as simple as making subjects that are needed."   The key for the real stars is knowing what will be needed i.e getting ahead of the curve...its not so hard to see what sells now....what will sell in six months not so much. Those people who followed events closely were probably pumping out Covid related images months before the rest of us.....see also Crypto etc.

reading some of these replies, I'm rather shocked no one mentioned this...

The pendumlum swings back when you learn how to do your OWN marketing, and be EFFECTIVE at it.

Most artists (and I get this) don't like marketing, because it is "work". But once you figure out a formula that WORKS - so start seeing nice returns.
While "stock agencies" are nice (and I 100% admit I use them myself) - they aren't the only way of making $$$ from your work. Start seeing that, learn & apply, and you'll see increased $$$.

Scarcity and exclusivity.
Look at all the Instagram models selling memberships to their OnlyFans page.
