About This Class

What makes lifestyle photography so attractive? How can you tap into its booming popularity to make money on the side? 

This fun and interactive 50-minute class with photographer Blake Bronstad and Snapwire will show you how you can take the photos you already love Instagramming and sell them online.

Blake begins by showing you his creative process for shooting lifestyle photos, including:

  • Top down food shots and tablescapes 
  • People interacting with food 
  • People interacting with products and other people 

He then shares pro tips on the business side of photography – from knowing your rights and maximizing your revenue, to when you should use a model release.

You'll even learn Blake's editing process in Lightroom for evoking a warm, aspirational vibe. 

By the end, you'll master the techniques to capture your very own lifestyle shots, and turn them into a viable source of revenue.


Snapwire is a photographer-driven community founded on the principles of cooperative equality, respect, and fair distribution of profits. Their contributing photographers receive 50% of a photo purchased in the Snapwire Marketplace and 70% of a photo purchased off an assignment.

Easy and good looking info. Most important info for me is about "Legal stuff" and selling images site..
WOW! Thank you so much for creating this video, Blake. I honestly never knew much about selling stock photos, other than the fact that some people do it. Did not realize how realistic it was for me to do the same. Will definitely be creating a Snapwire account soon and taking some (hopefully) sellable shots. THANK YOU!! Ps I checked out your instagram and you are the bees knees.
Really useful class
