ABOUT STYLED STOCK SOCIETY

Styled Stock Society is a stylish stock photography membership for women entrepreneurs created by women entrepreneurs. We currently have a library of over 9,000 images + videos organized in cohesive collections to help our members save time creating visual content for their brands. Our members are typically millennial women with small businesses ranging across a variety of industries – they’re coaches, strategists, designers, developers, virtual assistants, copywriters, home organizers, health + wellness professionals, bloggers, podcasters, and more! You can learn more about membership here.

WHO WE WORK WITH:

We work with contributing photographers + videographers across the globe to create content for our members. Because we are committed to adding fresh images to our member library every single week, we love working with our photographer partners on an ongoing basis. However, we don't require long term commitments, and we also accept collections for licensing on a “one-off” basis if they are a good fit for our library.

Our contributing photographers typically have experience with stock, brand, lifestyle, product, wedding, and/or portrait photography and are able to capture “elevated everyday” moments with a fresh + modern style.

You're a great fit if:

  • you want to supplement your photography income with recurring stock photography revenue (we do not have full time photographer positions available at this time)
  • you love visual storytelling (we strive for collections that tell a visual story as a whole rather than “portrait style” composition with many variations of the same shot)
  • you value diversity (we want to see photos of people of different races + ethnicities, hair colors, skin tones, body types, and sizes)

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

Currently we’re looking for talented photographers to submit lifestyle images around the following themes:

  • Entrepreneurial women working
  • Creative workspaces
  • Wellness + holistic living
  • Interiors + home decor
  • Travel + leisure
  • Nature + landscapes
  • Weddings + entertaining

For examples of previously accepted collections that fit our guidelines, please see the following:

HOW WE CAN WORK TOGETHER

  1. If you have an existing collection of photos and/or videos that you would like to submit for potential inclusion in the Styled Stock Society member library, please submit this form.
    • Please note that any images or videos accepted must be exclusive to Styled Stock Society (with very limited exceptions) and may not be submitted to other stock photography sites. You retain copyrights and may use them for your own personal use / portfolio purposes. 
    • We typically look to curate collections of approximately 25 images (or 10+ videos). Please submit at least 30-50 images for consideration (more is always better!) as we will not select all of the images submitted.
    • We’ll be in touch within 5 business days with a licensing offer if we determine that the images are a good fit for our library. Licensing will be based on the number of photos / videos selected.
  2. If you do not already have a gallery of photos or videos but are interested in shooting collections as a contributing photographer on an ongoing basis, you can submit an application via THIS FORM and we'll be in touch when we are in need of new talent.
