I'd like to see how this works out for you.  I've heard that stock as it stands today is struggling.  I think the current companies are single focused on one side of the business model.  Which isn't the side where photographers are standing.

Stock photo sites have changed so much in recent years, something needs to change.  I can't see making anything worth talking about unless you have zillion photos.  

However, good luck.  Keep us posted!

You just got to get creative with your shots that you are uploading.  Most sites will show top searches.  Look at what others are uploading, and add a spin to those shots.

Stock photograph definitely has changed over recent years.  However it's not dead, you just need to get an edge on others.  Have a degree in patience and go the distance.  Good luck to you!
