Storefront Walkthrough with FiveElement

We’ve partnered with RedShark editor Simon Wyndham (also known as FiveElement on Pond5) to walk you through customizing and optimizing your artist Storefront!
In the video above, join Simon as he takes us from shoot to upload. See for yourself how easy it is to use these features, then read on for some key takeaways.


Production Planning

Even before you shoot, start thinking about potential customers. In the video, Simon explains how he leveraged his surfing lifestyle shoot to include landscape scenes, expanding his audience. Like him, you’ll want to consider the following aspects before your shoot:

  • Location
  • Models
  • Props
  • Weather

Remember, the weather can be unpredictable. If you’re shooting outside, it’s a great idea to plan your contingency shots!


Customize Your Storefront

Use your Pond5 Storefront to showcase your brand identity and work. See how Simon:


Let’s Get Exclusive

It pays to be exclusive. Simon decided to become a Pond5 Exclusive Video Artist to take advantage of Pond5’s industry-leading 60% royalty share. You can sign up anytime too!


Refer and Earn

Simon says…take home 90% of your sales. He’s referring to the Pond5 Referral Program—giving you commission for every new buyer you bring to Pond5!
Here’s how:
Click ‘Refer and Earn’ on your Storefront or visit your My Referrals page.
Share your unique link with friends or on social media. Your referrals get 20% off their purchase, and you get 20% too!
When your referrals purchase your work, you get an additional 10% on each referred purchase.
