    • If Travel For Business, Make Some Extra Money On the Side
    • Use Your Time Away To Make Money
      • One way to make some extra money as a travel professional is to get paid for some of the photos that you take while you are on the road.
      • If you already do a lot of traveling for your business, then you can start this business for free.
      • For some other articles on travel photography, you can check out www.charterpilotguide.blogspot.com .
    • Learn to Take a Great Photo
      • If you want to make money doing this you will need to learn how to take great travel photos.
      • If you want to get into the world of commercial photos, you need to understand that it is clarity that sells.
      • One article cannot cover everything you need to know about taking a good photo but here are some important tips to get you started.
    • Resource
      • For more important tips and free stock photos check out www.free-stock-pictures.com .
    • Tips
      • You can really do this with any camera but at some point you should get a high quality one like a Canon Rebel.
      • Learn how to use it and all of the features that it has.
        • You should pull out the operating guide and really learn about each feature.
        • If you buy a high quality camera you can also find books specifically on your model at the book store.
        • You can also probably find articles on the web for your specific model·
      • Have an eye for detail and color.
        • Start observing the world around you and look for situations that might appeal to other individuals in a photo.
      • Be ready to grab an opportunity when it presents itself.
    • Example
      • For example if you are hiking through the hills of Scotland and come across a lone piper, grab your camera and get some pictures.
    • Photograph Everything
      • Look for anything that you can photograph and take the picture.
      • Look for sunsets, moonrise, cloud formations, rivers, oceans, beaches and tree shapes.
    • You Want to Take Pictures of Everything.
      • One great thing about a digital camera is that you can take tons of pictures and only keep the ones that turn out good.
      • You no longer will be wasting money on film learning your craft.
    • Take pictures of buildings and cool sights
    • Take a lot of flower pictures
      • These are always good sellers.
      • Greeting card markets love photos of flowers
    • Wildlife and Nature
      • These are great for calendars and geographic magazines and educational markets.
    • Diverse Array of Subjects
      • Having a diverse array of subjects that you photo is the key to success in any photo business.
      • It also applies to a travel photography business.
      • The more topics that you cover the more potential sales you can get.
      • You can make a good living from stock photography.
    • Think Outside the Box
      • Use your travels to sell photos.
      • You do not necessarily have to sell your photos as travel photos.
      • You can sell your flower photos to calendar companies or whatever.
    • So take pictures of everything.
      • For the pictures that turn out like crap, just delete them.
      • For the ones that do turn out good, think about who would be interested in that subject and market it to those types of companies.
    • Where to Submit
      • You can also submit them to stock photography sites and let them sell the pictures for you.
      • Travel guides, brochures and websites are all possible markets for your photos but so is every other market.
      • So if you decide to be a travel photographer just don’t limit yourself to travel photography.
      • There is a wide range of markets that you can sell your pictures to.
      • The main thing to aim for with any photo is to sell it to multiple markets.
      • This is how you will make big money in this business.
    • Develop a Portfolio
      • One thing you will want to do is to create a portfolio of your best work.
      • That way you can advertise to potential clients using actual photos that you have taken.
      • A high quality portfolio will look better than rummaging through your desk to find some examples.
    • What to Charge
      • The other thing is that you should charge a fair amount for your photos.
      • You don’t have to sell them for just pennies.
      • You should sell them for a lot more because you have spent a lot of time learning your art.
      • You also spent a lot of timing finding and taking the perfect picture.
      • So don’t sell yourself short.
      • Research what others are charging at Stock Photo Sites to get an idea of what to charge for yours
    • Other Places to Submit Photos
      • If you really know what you are talking about and can take a fantastic shot, think of submitting it to a photographic magazine, along with all the details of the precise equipment you used and a step-by step account of your procedure.
      • A bit of a challenge maybe, but worth the effort.
      • There are many other markets to consider too; all kind of magazines, newspapers, catalogues, travel brochures and books.
      • So grab that camera and start shooting
