Becoming a Photographic Author

Posted on: 26 July 2008

So you’ve taken tons of photos and you wonder what to do with all of these. How can you make money from the photos you’ve taken? Here’s some good advise from PhotoPreneur:

Moving from enthusiastic photographer to income-generating photographer is now easier than ever. The photography world has a wide selection of open entry points, from microstock sites to Flickr networking and from websites to art fairs.

But while the roads towards professional photography are broad, the room at the top is narrower than ever. Media companies are laying off photojournalists and increased competition is removing the shine – and the profits — from traditional stock sellers.

Of course, the rarity of being a leading photographer just makes the accomplishment even more impressive. It’s why print magazines like JPG can sell copies even though the Web has thousands of pages offering similar content, and it’s why companies like Blurb succeed even though any photographer can show off their works online.

There remains something special about seeing your photography published, in print and in your hands.
