Make cash with your cam!

Selling photos is one of the online money making phenomenons that brings people thousands of extra dollars a month. There is a high demand for photo usage. For example, millions of people need photos for advertisements, blogs, fliers, business cards, commercials, websites, articles, and the list continues. That means that there is and always will be a market for photos. The best thing about this is you do not have to be a fancy photographer from Paris. Anyone one can make money selling photos.The best part about selling photos online is that is totally free.

Equipment - The good thing about selling photos online is you don't need any expensive or bulky equipment. All you need is a digital camera and the internet. If you don't already have one, you can grab them pretty cheap at Walmart for about $50 bucks. Though, I would suggest looking at this as a business investment and purchasing a camera of high quality for around $300. The only other thing you need is an internet connection. After you have your cam and net, you would need editing software. I use Kodak because I have a Kodak camera. Not only is Kodak's software editor is very simple and easy to understand it also delivers professional results. If you don't have a Kodak camera don't worry, there are downloads available online for virtually any brand you get. Furthermore, your camera should come with it's own.

Research - Take a look at photos being sold on some of these site. Study your field so you can know the difference between a good picture and a bad picture. Try to gain understanding of what people are looking for in stock photography. Most new photographers get ideas from other photographer's photos and then add their own unique ideas to the shot.
