Photographers, to me, are a lot like writers. You begin doing what you do because you love it. Money is not something that comes easily, and many people never get to the level where they can make a living from photography or writing. It is often a labor of love, and if you want to do it for the rest of your life, you really have to work at it. It also seems to be a career that is either feast or famine. You may work hard and get very little for a very long time.
But if you keep up this hard work, you may be able to start to sell photos for a lot of money. However, for many people, this is not easy. There are newer ways for photographers to sell photos today, thanks to the Internet. Stock photos have always been around, and have long been a way to make money, but now you can find them more easily than every before. Many companies have stock photos online, which speeds up the process of finding and selling photos for both the consumer and the photographers.
If you take photos, but you canít seem to figure out how to make a living doing so, you should look into stock photography. There are new Internet sites popping up every day, and many of them need quality photos. I have used many myself when I needed a good photo to go with an article. There are more and more sites popping up that sell photos, and even new photographers can get in on the act. You simply upload your photos per the sites requirements and then wait until someone buys your photo. You can sell photos in heaps this way, and you can make some decent money doing so. Some of the stock sites will pay you revenue per download. They may sell a lot of photos, and you make a lot of money. You will have to read their terms to see how much you may get per download. Some pay more than others, and in some cases, you have to sell photos for quite a while before anything substantial comes in.
Donít let that discourage you. Keep taking good photographs and keep submitting them to these sites. The more you have, the more photos you are going to sell. You will also notice that as your work improves, you are going to sell photos faster than you can take them. Even just having your work on a site like this can lead to bigger things. .
