At 500px, it’s a critical part of our mission to help you, our member photographers, earn money from their work.

We’re first and foremost a photography community. Since our founding in 2009, our network of photographers has swelled to more than 9,000,000!

Right now, Marketplace showcases millions of high-quality photos and puts money in the pockets of our photographers.

You can read success stories from your fellow photographers on ISO. ISO also offers educational posts to help you hone your craft and learn what sells.

Earlier this year, we launched Quests, themed photo contests that let you share your photos with the world and give you a chance to win great prizes.

As we move forward, we’re keeping our support for photographers front and center.
In the last month, we introduced 500px for Business, a growing suite of services that enables custom photography on a global scale. We’re transforming on-demand photography by connecting the world’s premier photo community to the brand and product managers who need custom imagery. Today, we are thrilled to add Directory to 500px for Business, making it easier than ever for any client to find you and match your talents with their needs.

How Directory Works

Directory is a new way to link you directly to paying clients. You list your skills and specialties in your Services profile. That information is added to the Directory, which is searchable by location and specialty. Clients find you in the Directory and hit a “hire” button on your profile to contact you directly.

All 500px members are eligible to be in Directory while it’s in its beta version. Explore the Directory here.

How to get in the Directory

Getting added to Directory will let clients contact you directly, and it will also enable the 500px team to offer you Assignments—another key feature of 500px for Business. To get started, just go to your profile and fill out the three-page form to tell us about yourself, your equipment, and your services. You’ll also need to upload portfolio photos that support your offerings.

Once your profile has been completed, you’ll see a “Services” tab replace the “About” tab you have now. Your “Services” tab will be populated with the information you put in your form, and you’ll be all set!

We hope you make full use of 500px to take your photography career to the next level. Thank you for being a part of the 500px community. We can’t wait to see your work!
