make money with my camera?

January 1, 2009 9:13am CST
I got a digital camera for christmas, does anyone have any ideas how I might use it to make some money? I am OK at taking pictures, not good but OK, I dont have photoshop. I tried shareapic but they seem to only pay US residents. And any other pictures I have submitted to sites like big stock photo have been declined.

I know a couple of sites which allow users to upload images and in return you can earn a profit. Perhaps one of the most useful sites I have found is istockphoto or photographersdirect. These sites not only allow you to upload images but do it in a clear and fairly easy to understand way. I am also a member of Flickr which I know many people use to upload photos although i'm not too sure how people can earn money there as many of the pictures can easily be lifted from the site through copy and paste. Making money from photography is something I have considered in the past but have always been a little daunted as to how to go about it. Especially in terms of uploading pictures as many sites ask for a few hundred when you start off. I wish you luck with this and if good money can actually be made from this i'm sure we'd all like to hear more.

Glad I could help. If you want to know a little more about ways you could make money from this you could also take a look at the moneysavingexpert website. On there you should find a forum named up your income. In this forum I have read in the past different threads relating to this. You may find this very beneficial to read and it lists a few other sites I haven't mentioned.

You can try www.igougo.com. A photo uploaded is worth 25 points. And 6000 points can redeem for a $25 amazon gift card. That is 240 photos.

I don't think shareapic pays only US residents, but I may be wrong.

It would not let me register as it would not let me enter my postcode,address or anything like that.
