Dear Reader,

Breakfast Stock Club reader Theresa StJohn wrote in to tell me she’s having a blast selling her photos as stock and then finding them in use.

For example, this photo she took of fried clams…

Delicious whole bellied clam roll

Ended up on this stylish blog called CereusArt.com:

And after she snapped a photo of this Irish soda bread…

She found the image on a website for this high-end apartment complex:

Another delicious seafood shot, this photo she took of outdoor dining…

Ended up illustrating this article on hospitalityhub.com.au:

Congratulations on the stock photo sales, Theresa! Keep it up.

Since I started selling my photos as stock, I’ve found them in deodorant ads, in online travel blogs, on a CD cover, on a book cover, and in National Geographic Poland!

Stock agencies won’t tell you who’s buying your photos… but if the photo buyer uses them online, sometimes you can find them by searching with Google Images.

Here’s a quick video to show you how:

Happy hunting!
