according to that stats site with the bird logo (I forgot the name), I am above the 93 percentile in earnings of all stock contributors. So I make more than 93% of photographers and videographers.

I have 20,000 videos and about 50,000 photos (half online, rest are pending upload).

I make about $35,000 a year from stock.

good luck

Ignore this guy.

So, as I thought, no more than the stats of those participating.
Whereas of course unonimous said he was "I am above the 93 percentile in earnings of all stock contributors"

If you keep the non-exclusive and exclusive portfolios and maintain them with good team. A good business with earning more than $150K an year is possible. There are lots of guys on DT who are exclusive and did well. I know one guy personally, he started with vectors and now has team of 12 people in his business and just does stock only.

This is the market of volume. First have the goods to sell and then find the place and model to sell. Thats how it works. I am planning to move my base to London with full time Stock business being operated there with team of 5-6 people to begin with.

I wonder if there is a potential clash with Shutterstock's and possibly others ToS?

"By submitting any Content to Shutterstock, you acknowledge that you will acquire certain confidential and proprietary information, including but not limited to royalty rates, royalty payments and earnings data (collectively, "Confidential Information"). You agree to keep Confidential Information confidential and to not disclose Confidential Information to any third party other than representatives, agents, attorneys, accountants, auditors and advisors with a bona fide need to know, who shall first agree to keep the terms confidential" Or do they have an agreement?

Title says it all. I'm genuinely interested in figuring out how can I make $150k/year from stock photos/videos?
It's fun to do - now I'd like to figure out how to reach those numbers.
Its quite easy. Upload 3000 images at the big three. Wait a year, to get the RPI / Year.
If your RPI ist 1 - you just need to upload 150.000 images. The Lifetime of an image may be 3 Years.
So you just have to upload 150.000 images every 3 Years. Quite simple.

of course once you start creating teams, with HR, salaries, payroll taxes, etc, etc, that 150K rapidly becomes a smaller number than was posed by OP  -- the chances for a single photog to make 150K from stock is vanishingly small today

Of course and to have a business where you can "make" 150K in the sense of giving yourself that kind of salary is not a simple task.

To be fair though that isn't actually true.
