Back in the days of film I join a couple of stock agency's but for them to hold your photos they had lots of rules..the main one being that you needed to add to their stock library 25 photos per month...for that they did all the paperwork and sent me a cheque ever quarter for ny that had been used less their commission.....I had full control of the copyright but had the option to sell the rights on fully again less the agency's commission (which was about 5%) it worked well but having to submit 25 pictures per month in the winter months became a pain so stopped working with that agency and sent all the images to the Getty picture library...I still retain the copyright and they send a cheque 3times a year but at the time they wanted 750 images as a min....they still have my photos on stockbut the payments get fewer and fewer...I think last year got a chq £50 for the year...so you need to check out the t&c's.....
Good luck as yoy have some really fine images
