For many years, professional photographers allowed their images to be sold through stock photography companies. Anyone buying an image paid a fee to the stock photo company and the photographer also made money. This still occurs in the marketplace, but royalty free stock photography has now entered the picture. Some royalty free websites offer photographers the chance to list their photos for free. Purchasers can also buy these photos for under $40, a dramatic savings when compared to traditional stock photos. This new wave of stock photography has opened up new avenues for:
*Amateur photographers who can now sell their photos to many of the same buyers that professionals can.
* Small businesses who can now afford to find great photos at bargain basement prices to enhance all their visual materials and marketing programs.
