I guess you've all come across some of the best known stockphoto sites like: 
And there are heaps more!  

Have a look at the pictures on these sites to see what they're after. And then go out and shoot some yourself. You might already have good quality pictures in your portfolio that are worth loading up to a stockphoto agency.

All the sites are after good quality pictures that have a great composition and are pinsharp. Besides loading up your pictures, you also need to pay attention to filling out the right keywords.

The key to seling your images via stockphoto sites is to upload great pictures on a regular basis. Pinsharp, well-composed, standing out from the crowd. It takes time to build up a portfolio at each of these sites, but stick with it! It's worth it in the long run!
