It's got tips on how to get started with selling your photos online to stock photo sites, which
pictures are hot sellers, and even how to take better pictures. You could be making money with the photos you already have NOW.

If you you've got what it takes to sell your photos online, then don't restrict your art to just a hobby never seen by the outside world. There is a wide and varied market out there ready and willing to pay for your pictures. All you have to do is take quality photographs and learn to market yourself through the right channels. Here's how you can make money from home by simply taking pictures:

Make note of agencies that are on the lookout for pictures. Study some of the more popular magazines so as to better understand the quality and style of the pictures used to enhance the articles. On your own, try and match the quality of the pictures you study. If you are lucky enough to find a magazine that already has the same picture quality as your own photographs, contact them with 20-25 pictures from your portfolio. As an alternative, you can contact the photo editor and send them some of your pictures for their perusal.

Another type of business that seeks the creative services of photographers are insurance and mortgage companies. These businesses receive frequent demands for freelance photographers to display online pictures of their various property types (like apartments and commercial malls). You could go out and take quality photographs of some appealing properties and then send them to these companies. You can also take on this type of work as a part-time job which can be done at your leisure. If you are selected for the work, both the location and time to take the pictures would be at your discretion.

In order to further view a list of companies seeking freelance photographers, you can conduct an online search. If you go to Google and type in the keywords "freelance or part-time photographer required" it could help you with an introduction to prospective clients. Yet another alternative would be to work with stock photography agencies who will successfully sell your photos online, as they have access to a wide range of photographers from across the world. They then in turn present these pictures to a large contingent of online consumers, making it a lot easier to sell your photos online. Given the cut-throat nature of stock photography, ensure that your pictures are of the highest resolution and best quality to avoid possible rejection of your work. Once your pictures have been accepted by a stock photography site, make sure you select keywords when describing your pictures so that your work is most viewed by the online audience in the first-two pages of the search engines.

Increasing both the sales and marketing of your pictures is in your hands. Continue to study and observe quality photographs on stock photography sites done by your contemporaries; have your pictures measure up to the same quality. You need to ensure your pictures are of the sharpest quality with no blurry or out of focus shots or you won't manage to sell your photos online. Don't take pictures of signs or logos that represent a particular company. The more you practice the better you will be. And remember, the Internet offers a wide range of possibilities to make money from home from your photography art work.

The internet is currently the leading money making forum in the world. You need to keep an internet business right down as far as overheads are concerned which will boost your eventual profits.
