One of the most fun sources of Passive income that I have ever experienced, and believe me when I say I am in this area for a long time, is stock photography. Stock photography, or micro stocking consists of existing photographs you that can be licensed for specific uses. Book publishers, magazines, advertising agencies, filmmakers, web designers, graphic artists, companies in general, and other entities use and desperately need stock photography to fulfill the needs of their creative tasks. By using stock photography instead of hiring a photographer to perform on location shooting, customers can save valuable time and stay on budget.
Selling stock is not selling photographs. Selling stock is selling the right to use certain photograph in a certain way, for example, use it in a book not exceeding a certain number of copies; or use it in printed advertising, etc. This approach allows to sell the same picture multiple times to the same or different buyers for different use. As you figured out already, Stock photography companies are agencies selling to buyers the photos supplied by photographers and taking part of the price as commission.
The advantage of stock photography to photographers is that you can make money from the photographs made without a specific assignment. This is interesting both for amateurs who could start getting some compensation for their hobby expenses and for professionals who often have unused pictures at their disposal. Another advantage of stock pictures is that successful pictures will sell again and again over the years unlike an assignment work that is only paid once. This is in fact a high profitable source of passive income, and a fun one, if I may add. And on top of that you could be taking home an income as a part-time or even a full-time job, depending on how much time you can dedicate to this.
