If you are familiar with buying stock photography, you probably know that, most often, individual photos are for sale. But, the stock photography market is changing rapidly. Many online photo stock companies are now offering subscriptions as an alternative to buying single photos. When you buy a stock photo subscription you are given the chance to download as many photos as you like in a given time frame, such as three to six months.
This may or may not be the best deal for you. Consider the fact that, if you research such deals, you'll find that the price for them varies greatly. You might find one deal for $129 and another, similar deal for as high as $400. How do you know which one to choose?
Getting the best deal for stock photography is much like buying anything else: a car, a house, a boat or a toaster. The market will supply buyers with many options at differing price points. It doesn't mean that lower cost stock photography is a lower quality and it doesn't guarantee that higher subscriptions offer you anything better.
The best way to buy stock photography is to investigate the market by reading trade magazines, talking to colleagues and spending time on individual sites to determine the best deal for your use.
