Hi everyone,

I would like to know if it is worth doing drone photography and uploading to shutterstock?

Thank you.

But you are already uploading aerial drone images

I'll say this though your keywords are rubbish no wonder nothing sells

Stop using phrases like fishing, fishing action, fishing concept etc and aerial, aerial photography, aerial view

just use one word at a time, aerial, fishing, concept

Confusing as you already seem to have a drone profile as someone else said.

The "best" time for drone photography was about 2 years ago.  Up until DJI released the mavic, it was quite hard or time consuming for people to get aerial pictures and there was quite a market.

Since then, the mavic, spark, air have meant that pretty much every person on the street owns a drone, can take their own imagery as well as submitting it to stock sites.  The things are everywhere in daily life now.

You can still make some money if you already have a drone for other purposes but whether its worth actually investing one specifically for microstock im not convinced.

Especially with the current SS issue of image saturation and new images being punished and hidden in the search.
