We want all photographers on EyeEm to have an equal chance of selling their photos. That’s why we bring you these insights each month, detailing what kinds of images are selling particularly well. If you’re unsure what to shoot next, let yourself be inspired by these shots: They show that creating a bestseller often isn’t about the camera or subject, but about taking your pictures from a new and surprising perspective.

If you’re looking for inspiration on what to upload, you can also explore a larger selection in Market Bestsellers 2017. That way, you’ll be able to see what sells yourself.
