Type “make money from your photos” into Google and you get around 1.3 billion results. A look through the first few pages of results will suggest how easy it is and how the money will be rolling in for very little work. Indeed on the first page of the search is a site that tells you which agencies will make you $100 plus per image.
That particular page lists 5 websites, all of which could sell your image for $100 but carefully omits that the chances of that are next to 0. The harsh reality of stock photography is that you are unlikely to be making huge sums of money at all.
In fact, without a lot of hard work and dedication, it is quite possible you will be making money for the agency without seeing a return. More on that later.
