Who says you can’t make money licensing your photography? Not us, that’s for sure. We’ve done our best to make sure you DO make money if you license your photos through the 500px Marketplace.

We work with big-name buyers, constantly advertise the broad spectrum of talent using this awesome community of ours (that means you!), and offer an industry-leading payout of 70% per license sold without any sort of annual fee to balance the scales in our favor.

But the coolest part of this is that we’ve actually seen results—or rather, the photographers who have trusted us to sell their work have.

Want proof? Check out the photos below. A collection of 11 photos that have, together, earned over 10K in royalties selling on individual licenses through 500px:

Keep in mind that these photos aren’t the Top 11 highest selling photos on the 500px Marketplace… the total royalties made by that Top 11 would come out higher. They’re just a diverse set of successful shots that have each sold several times and can CONTINUE selling more licenses and earning more money.
