Updated: Jul 13, 2020



This post is a follow up on my first ever blog post If you haven't read it yet the link is below so you can catch yourself up




In the post I list some good options for uk van lifers to make money whilst living the van life but today I am going to concentrate on just one on them and that is Shutterstock.


This is Part 1 of a series, it is such an awesome way to make money from the road I have decided to make a whole series on it, the aim is help you all make money from the road and enjoy your Van life.


If you would like to earn money on shutter stock so you can travel and enjoy your life whilst making money at he same time make sure you subscribe to my blog and like my facebook page to keep up to date with all my posts.





Shutterstock is an amazing way to make a passive income from literally anywhere in the world making it perfect for anybody living the van life. You can be your own boss and work when and where you want and all you really need is a decent camera or smart phone and internet connection to get started.


As I said in my previous post I am a Photographer & Cinematographer so Shutterstock was an obvious choice for me from the start but you DO NOT need to be a professional Photographer or Cinematographer to make money on Shutterstock. Anybody can do it if you know what to post and when, how to keyword your photos/videos, and put the time in. Hopefully this series will help you get started so you can make a passive income too.
