Money From Photos

I bet you have a lot of photos are saved in your hard drive. Maybe most of them are your personal photographs. If you are a photographer however, chances are you have a lot of digital photos saved in your computer. When you are looking at those good shots, it might be that you are wishing to make money from photos you have. Well, I wanna tell you that yes you can make money from photos saved in your hard drives.

Most of the time, we are not making money from photos we are taking. We just capture them and then upload them just for the sake of art to satisfy our lust in photography. This is good since we'll be happy seeing those great shots we took. We'll sure be happier however if we make money out of those great photos.

That sounds great but how is that? Well, I'm not saying that you'll definitely get rich in making money from photos that you have. I'm sure however that you can turn those photos into money if you do something. Here are some of the ways that you can do:

1. Submit those Photos to Stock Photography Sites

The best way to make money from photos that you have is by selling them online. You can do so by joining stock photography sites (such as istock photo, big stock, shutter stock, etc.) in the internet. Then learn the photos that you can sell through those websites. All stock photography sites have guidelines that you can check for you to learn the proper photos that you need to capture and sell. Check out also for the top selling photos from them so that you'll know what type of photos you will take and upload.

2. Make Templates Out of Your Photos

Many designers does not have a lot of times so they are looking for templates to use in their designs. How about try to make templates such us background designs, textures or even foregrounds. You need to have some skills in photo editing though. To be able to this, you have to learn Adobe Photoshop. Almost every designer are using Adobe Photoshop so better learn it too. This is because it is better to do templates in Photoshop format. You can also learn other softwares such as Corel Draw and Adobe In Design. Of course you can also use some other softwares if you want. But chances are you'll not be able to sell those templates made from other software because most designers are not using them.

3. Sell Those Photos By Yourself

You can also sell those photos in your own way. In Etsy, photographs can also be sold. You can offer having them printed and framed. If there is trade fair in your place, you might as well sell some of your works. Just frame them and make some designs for them to be useful to others. You can also make some calendars with your photos as the heading or background.

I'm sure you can be very creative here. If had some ideas in your mind, try to list them down. Sometimes we think of good ideas but we tend to forget them later. Many times, there are good ways in making money from photos that we know but it just remain as ideas and we never do it. Or if we already wanted to do it, we cannot think of any good idea. So once making money from photos popped in your mind, then list them down. You can also keep on checking on other photography business ideas online to see what other opportunities you can apply.
