Review of Backyard Silver’s Stock Photography Master Class

Having recently attentively watched Steve Heap’s Stock Photography Master Class, I was impressed with quality of the material provided. Thank you, Steve as I picked up valuable snippets of knowledge to further my stock photography business and I trust it will be equally rewarding to others.

Who is Steve Heap?

Steve Heap is the author of his blog, Backyard Silver, where he openly discusses tips on making it in this increasingly difficult business-model. Evidence to his expertise is earning $3k+ a month by submitting stock photos to some 17 agencies.

The class is one-hour long and consists of 70 slides outlying the following topics:

  • What is stock photography?
  • Uses of stock photos
  • Discussion on Steve’s best sellers and why
  • Which types of images sell and why
  • Licensing: RF/RM, Commercial/Editorial
  • Legalities including releases
  • Pricing: how much can you earn
  • How much have Steve Heap earned, # of images and with which agencies
  • Capturing/creating profitable subjects
  • Alternative revenue streams including stock video

How much?

Master Steve has decided to offer it for a bargain basement price of $0.49, including the instructions in the PDF. He’s put the option where on top of the minimum above, you enter what you think it might be worth to you.

I think it should be worth about $10 for the content you’ll receive…nothing out there for free like it and great content should not be given away for free, in my opinion.
