Making Money With A Digital Camera

  1. 1. Making Money with a Digital Camera Shoot photographs; Upload them; Make money for a lifetime Author: Shalini “If a 22 year old girl like me can make $1000 a month by spending just 2 hrs a day, YOU CAN do it too!” Webpage: Shalini Hubpages Email: Shailini.Gupta@Gmail.com
  2. 2. Two ways of Money-making Methods I should warn you that there are plenty of get-rich-quick scams available on the web. Since I never will fall into one, I will never drag any reader into one neither. I would only write a hub page here only when I am thoroughly convinced that it is a genuine way to make money on web. This information collected and presented here are verified by me and through by my friends who are making real money in a genuine, good way. The more sincere in your efforts, the more you will get rewarded. There are fundamentally two genuine ways to earn money on web. They are by, 1. Selling a service or 2. Selling a product. If you choose to sell a service, you will earn only when you work. In other words, when you stop working, you don't earn money. Agreed? But, if you sell a product, you will earn money from it even after you stopped working. Let me make this clear, for instance, if you shoot some photos with your digital camera and upload them to stock photo sites, you will earn money whenever someone downloads your photo. Every person who is downloading you photo from a stock photo site will have to pay royalty to you. You will earn from your photos for your lifetime, actually. Which one do you think is a better way to earn money? I prefer the second method, because like the majority of hub page users, I try to make money as a part-timer and this would be applicable to moms working from home, dads and other young lads who are trying to build a passive income from web. Forget all the hardships you faced so far. You are one stroke away from creating your cash flow.
  3. 3. Can you REALLY make MONEY with a Digital Camera? quot;Yes. You can sell the same photo a number of timesquot; quot;You will earn royalty whenever someone downloads one of your photos – for lifetimequot; Yes, all with a simple, point and shoot digital camera that you might already have. Are you tired of get-rich-quick scams? Here's a genuine way to make money. Yes, it will NOT make you rich overnight, probably. But, with your hard work and some clever techniques that I teach here, you can build up a passive income. Welcome to the world of Stock Photography. I know what you are going to say, 'you don't have a professional camera'. Right, that's the first myth I am going to break here. I have seen many ordinary photographers with a simple digital camera with 5 megapixels, 3X zoom - who are making a decent monthly income from selling stock photographs. Here, I am going to help you to make money with your digital camera. Believe in you and your digital camera. You are going to make money with it.
  4. 4. What is Stock Photography? Look at the above photos. They are some of the highest selling photographs and you know it is not too difficult to shoot such pictures, if you the know-how. Once you have shot such a good quality picture, you can make money from it by selling it a 'number of times'. Yes, every time when a person purchases, you will make money. That's the beauty of stock photography. So, what exactly is quot;Stock Photographyquot;? quot;Stock photography is photography or other imagery of common landmarks, objects, concepts, people, and events that can be used and reused for a variety of commercial purposes. Stock photography can be searched by keyword and remains cataloged until purchased by a customer.quot; stockphotography.uv.ro/en/dictionary.html
  5. 5. You shoot some pictures that are of good commercial value (look at the above examples) and submit to stock photo agencies. A stock photo agency combines the stock photos from many photographers and promotes them for sale. Media publishers (magazines, newspapers and web sites) search such stock photo sites for images , and when they download your picture, you get paid a commission. So, you make money whenever people download a copy of your photo. You can build a portfolio and submit to many stock sites at once (without providing exclusive rights to anyone), and make money. Simply put, it is like selling your digital photos and earning royalty for a lifetime. That's why this is a passive income. For example, I had uploaded 25 images on a stock site named, fotolia an year ago, but still they earn me commission. How much you can earn? It varies depending on the stock photo agencies, as they pas from 30% to 80% commission. So, for each download you can make from 30 cents to $1. So, at the end of a month, if 100 people have downloaded your photo, then you would have made $30 to $100. You can also sell a photo on an quot;Exclusive Buyout Licensequot; for up to $300 a photo, but once you sold a photo on this condition, you loose all your rights, royalties etc. Things you need: 1. Digital Camera (minimum of 4 megapixels) 2. A Light box. No need to spend money for it. You can make a light box with this tutorial How to Make A Inexpensive Light Tent by Jeffrey Bail.
  6. 6. Create an Account and Submit Photos To start selling your photographs, you need to join a micro stock agency. When you submit your application, you will be asked to submit few sample images. Your photos will be assessed for quality. Make sure that you set your Camera Settings to highest quality (Refer to the Camera manual) and largest picture size and shoot some sample images with bright light and preferably inside a photo light box that you had created. My friends have suggested that Fotolia is one of the easiest microstock agencies for new photographers to join. Fotolia offers 50% commission to you so, you will earn 50 cents whenever someone downloads your stock photo. You will get an easy approval and the process is very quick. Another good site is Dreamstime which provides 30% commission on each photo sales. Both these sites have tremendous traffic, high sales records, so, with a good quality stock photo portfolio of 50 images, you can earn up to $100 assuming people have downloaded 200 times. 3 Tips to Make Money with Digital Camera If you want to get some basic introduction on making money with digital camera, please head straight Make Money with your Digital Camera my earlier hub on the same topic. If you want to be successful in selling photos, you need to do three things. 1. Enrol in Stock Photo Sites: To make money by selling photographs, first you need to enrol in a stock photography site who will act as a agent to market and sell your photo. For example, Fotolia and Featurepics
  7. 7. are two very well known biggest stock sites for entry level photographers like you and me. Dreamstime is another stock site that is very popular among semi-professional photographers. You can earn your photos to many stock sites at the same time, so, sign-up in at least 3 stock sites to know which one will work for you. All stock sites could work for you and you can earn money from more than one place for same photos. 2. Master your Digital Camera: This is such a very simple yet powerful step and you need not spend money to master your digital cameras. All you have to do is to have a couple of good reads of the camera user manual, and plenty of practice. By looking at the best selling pictures, you can compare your skills. Try different modes and techniques with your digital cameras. And I will never advise to purchase a high-end SLR cameras at this stage, however, you can purchase a shiny digital SLR with your photo sale commissions if you are serious about photography. 3. Learn about selling your photos: Obviously, there are some tricks of the trade. You need to learn what sells, how to sell and where to sell. Even, I am just a starter in selling photos and had a fair success rate with it and earned few dollars (it's always good to earn money). So, in the next section, I review “Digital Camera Dollars” an online course that I undertook and it taught me plenty of good tricks and tips of selling stock photos. It is one of best investment I had made so far and a friend of mine paid that course fees from his online earnings. Remember to read Ten tips to earn plenty with Stock Photography Websites Remember this universal truth: For the one who seek wealth, there is plenty available.
  8. 8. Learn from the Best People Meet Mr. Yuri Arcurs, the highest selling micro-stock photographer in the world. This Danish photographer (still a university student) makes $25,000 per month by selling stock photos. All his earnings are his royalty fee, so he is not selling all those photos outright. You can read Yuri Arcurs interview on Crestock Now, if your goal is to earn at least $1000 a month (let us be conservative as you can be the next Yuri Arcurs if you want to), then you need to invest in some resources to learn few tips and tricks sincerely. Fortunately, one of my friend presented this “Camera Dollars E-course” as a birthday gift (value = $40) recently andCamera Dollars E-course I am amazed by the simple tips that they taught. These tips range from how to shoot the winning pictures, how to use the right keywords, title and description so that the photos come in top of the search engines and most importantly how to price your photos and market your photos so you can earn the desired passive income. Some of the myths that this Camera Dollars Course cleared out from my mind are: You don't
  9. 9. need expensive camera and top quality lenses. A simple 4 mega pixel camera will do. You don't need to be a top-notch photographer to earn money from stock photography. You don't need a 1000 photos portfolio to earn money as a stock photographer. You can start selling even 3 or 4 pictures. You don't need to work full-time. Just as a part-time hobby, in your leisure time, you can work. You don't need to hire models. Ask your friends to pose for you and give them a simple gift (a dinner perhaps) as a reward. I can go on listing all the tricks they taught but I would be violating their copyright if I do. All I can say is, it is worth the money and I can highly recommend the course. When you consider you are going to earn plenty of money (uninterrupted cash flow) in your spare time, you can earn that $40 investment back quickly. Enrol at the Camera Dollars Course to learn more and make a career as an amateur, freelance photographer. Report me back with your success story. I will be waiting for you.
