Outside of working for hire with no creative freedom, photographers have two common paths to monetise their work. Selling their work to photostocks, a revenue source that is waning as free stock sites proliferate, or landing brand advertisement deals, which is only accessible to the creators with the largest social media followings.

NFTs offer a new path for photographers to build direct relationships with fans and fund their art.

Excited to watch this category flourish. I think marketplaces tailored to the photography use case like Sloika and Quantum Art are going to shine, similar to what we've seen with Catalog and music NFTs.

Parameters: Dollar values are based on the value of the cryptocurrency used in the sale at the time of sale.
