Making Money From Selling Your Photos
If you are a photographer then there are a number of ways in which you can earn money from your photos. Yes, your photographs can earn you money.
But let's get one thing straight: we are not talking holiday snaps here, we are talking proper photographs.
If this interests you, but you don't yet feel quite up to the challenge, then maybe an online course is what you need. Online courses are super because you study at times convenient to you - and you're never waiting for a start date (or if you're like me find a course started 2 months ago!). One online course that's worth looking into is: School of Photography - Photography Courses
What Sort of Photos Sell?
Generally you only have to pick up any newspaper, magazine or piece of junk mail to find the answer to that. The photos you see in adverts and promotional materials are the sort of photos that sell well. Individual items sell well - this is called "stock photography".
If this doesn't appeal, then you can try other forms of photography: perhaps you could become an event photographer? This form of photography can be popular with sportspeople and makes for a great social life while you are practising your hobby and potentially earning money doing something you'd have probably done for free before!
Who the Heck Would Buy Them?
That depends on what you are photographing, but everywhere you look these days there are images: in advertising and promotions, junk mail, magazines, on TV, on mobile phones, online on websites, banner adverts ... just everywhere! Those photos came from somewhere and whereas some are specific photos, many are just random images used to illustrate an idea or emotion.
They can be turned into PC wallpaper or mobile phone wallpaper even!
There are literally 1000s if not millions of ways a photo can be used by somebody!
