My name is Daniele Carrer, I’m Italian and I was born in 1977. Until 2007 I’ve tried to be a film director. With my short films I’ve been selected by many international Festivals and I won a lot of awards, until I realized that it couldn’t be a job for me.
Then I worked as a story editor for a TV show. In 2006 I discovered stock footage and stock images, and my life changed, even if at the beginning it was just a hobby. In that period I’ve travelled Europe paying flight tickets and hotels with the sales of my content on many Agencies, like Shutterstock and Pond5.
In 2013 I lost my job, and I started to be a full time producer. Microstock saved my professional life! Today I earn about $3,000 per month selling stock images and stock footage, and I created this blog to teach everybody how to make money with the passion to shoot.
You don’t have to believe in my words, because I know that the internet is full of liars, but you can believe in my numbers, so please have a look at the list of my best sellers:
This is Pond5: I got 50% of the amount you see.
This is Shutterstock: I got 100% of the amount you see.
