You Can Make Money Online Selling Stock Photography

Expert Author

Are you a shutterbug?  Do you have a penchant for taking excellent pictures? If so, you can make money online selling stock photography.  What is stock photography?  How do you earn money with pictures that you take on your own?  Will people really pay for your pictures?

Everyone has a need for unique pictures online, from major corporations to blog owners and everyone in between.  How can you fill that gap?  By taking high-quality pictures, with a decent digital camera, you can provide a recurring income for you and your family. To understand how you can make money online selling stock photography, you must first understand what stock photography actually is.

What is this form of photography?  Stock photos are much the same as "stock" in any store that you might enter.  Just as your grocery store keeps several of the same items on the store shelf, stock photographs are sold multiple times.  Anyone can purchase these pictures, with the acknowledgement that they do not own the rights to the picture.  In exchange, you earn royalties for each sale.

Stock photographs are used for everything, from creating dynamic title bars to making sidebar backgrounds, advertisements, blog backgrounds and more.  Your photographs can be turned into high-impact web content by businesses, entrepreneurs, ezines and blog owners. To make money online selling stock photography, you must first own a digital camera.  You'll need one that has at least 10 megapixels (more is better, though).

Once you have the camera, the second step is to take the pictures.  Photographs of many different things sell quite well as stock photography.  For instance, pictures of computer equipment, flowers, trees and the natural environment, money and business paraphernalia, books, charts, pets and more.  Almost anything you can conceive can become a bestselling photo online.

The next step in the quest to make money online selling stock photography is to locate the right photography websites.  Thankfully, you will find quite a few of these, though their terms of service vary considerably. Each website has its own requirements, covering photograph size (in megapixels) as well as file format (JPG, GIF, etc).  Finally, each website has its own pay rate.  Some offer 80% of the profits from each sale, while others provide 50% commission on each sale.  Choose the websites that fit you best, sign up, upload your photos and earning money online selling stock photography!

Here are a few excellent resources to help you get started.

From all of these types of websites, I most like price comparison websites where the affiliate provide the users to compare prices on their required products with different retailers and stores and to find cheapest deals.
