The creators of Aerostock are fellow aerial photographers. We have been for the past twenty years, back when it was flying with a street directory and film cameras. Oh how things have changed.
As fellow creators understand the incredible value of the work you do. As such we we believe the vast majority of earnings need to go to you, the photographers, the ones in the field doing the hard yards! As such we have opted to give you the lions share when we sell your photos for you.
As founding members, currently all new photographers will receive 80% commission on all sales through our database. We are calling this the founding members rate, this will change over time, as the library grows, however all founding members will keep this amazing rate as a thank you to our fellow founding members.
After you become a contributor, our editors review the images, illustrations, or videos you submit to ensure they meet the requirements before making them available online for customers to view and purchase.
When a customer wants to use your content, they purchase a licence that gives them legal permission to use it in their projects. It could show up on a billboard, a book cover, social media, in a magazine article, blog post, or on a website—almost anywhere. Royalty-free licencing is the most common licence we offer our customers, it allows them to use your content for an unlimited amount of time in as many projects as they like, for a one-time fee.
We'll do our best to get back to you within a week of submitting your application. The welcome email will have instructions for completing your application including a request for your tax and payment information so you can be paid royalties.
