Where to Submit <ul><li>You can also submit them to stock photography sites and let them sell the pictures for you. </li></ul><ul><li>Travel guides, brochures and websites are all possible markets for your photos but so is every other market. </li></ul><ul><li>So if you decide to be a travel photographer just don’t limit yourself to travel photography. </li></ul><ul><li>There is a wide range of markets that you can sell your pictures to. </li></ul><ul><li>The main thing to aim for with any photo is to sell it to multiple markets. </li></ul><ul><li>This is how you will make big money in this business. </li></ul>

What to Charge <ul><li>The other thing is that you should charge a fair amount for your photos. </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t have to sell them for just pennies. </li></ul><ul><li>You should sell them for a lot more because you have spent a lot of time learning your art. </li></ul><ul><li>You also spent a lot of timing finding and taking the perfect picture. </li></ul><ul><li>So don’t sell yourself short. </li></ul><ul><li>Research what others are charging at Stock Photo Sites to get an idea of what to charge for yours </li></ul>
  18. 18. Other Places to Submit Photos <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>A bit of a challenge maybe, but worth the effort. </li></ul><ul><li>There are many other markets to consider too; all kind of magazines, newspapers, catalogues, travel brochures and books. </li></ul><ul><li>So grab that camera and start shooting </li></ul>
