Thousands of creatives all over the world gain a second income by listing their photos and videos on Lobster. Our platform sits between you, the creator, and professionals that want to license your work.

It’s free to join and you could start earning straight away. Our contributors keep 75% of every sale they make!


It only takes a minute to get set up and there’s nothing to upload either. Just sign in with an existing social media or cloud account and you’re good to go.

Remember that most of our creatives are amateurs, so you don’t need to be an expert to become popular. Maybe you’ve taken a photo of something unusual, or a video of an interesting City?


You probably store photos and videos in all sorts of different places, so connect as many sources as you can to increase your exposure.

If you’d rather hold some of your work back, then that’s easy too. Just select which items to share with us, and which to keep private. Or if you prefer, simply use #ilobsterit when posting and we’ll list that specific item automatically.


Top advertising agencies, bloggers and the press choose Lobster to find and license unique content. Maybe you’re hiding away a travel photo that could become the signature for a new campaign, or perhaps a blogger might snap up one of your pet videos to use on social media.

Either way, just leave it to us and we’ll try to find a good home for your work.


It’s inevitable that we want to take photographs of our holidays. Have you captured somewhere exotic beautifully in one of your photos? Selling travel photography online is a bliss as there are so many different places and angles.


Whether you’re appreciating the part of Earth you live on or a part from your travels, our clients love seeing them all.


Did you get to an awesome event and captured a few great action shots? This is rarely reflected in stock photos and allows for a lot of creativity, so you may want to start selling your online documentary style images to the leading media editors.


Do you have a cute pet or perhaps you’ve caught beauty in another species? Different world regions have different wildlife and diversity is key to authenticity, which is great for selling photography. So show us your online photos for a chance to sell them, - those might just be what media companies are looking for.
