So I love to take pictures, and have taken photography courses. I have a small collection and never thought that I could get paid for my shots. I am recently trying to upgrade my camera as my last SLR bit the dust. I thought I would pass on this way to make money buy selling your prints to photo sites. You for the most part give the rights to the photo to the site and they sell it for you and you earn money frome ach sale. Also, you can charge a price for your print, and throught the site a persona can order your print in your size. You get paid for the picture, and the site makes money by selling the print/framing.. etc Bigstockphoto Fotolia Shutterstock Dreamstime Keep in mind you must have a good camera, high resolutions prints. They are picky with people, but it is a legit way to make some money, and it is a very fun rewarding hobby as well. Does anyone else have any legit, real, fun, hobby based money making ideas?

Hi, some sites are very strict on photo's quality and I got some photos rejected due to bad lighting, subject and contrast. On my profile there are some other sites that you can join which are on the same basis. unfortunately I didn't have much time for this hobby but hopefully now I will be able to spare some time on it. Good luck with your hobby!

I write as a hobby and to make money. I write on some less serious sits and I also write on some of the more serious sites, I also write reviews for 2 different review sites. I enjoy writing and I love getting the immediately feedback that I get on the internet.

So you write articles? I was wondering if it was at all possible to publish reports or articles I had written in the past for school to make some money. Now that they are no use to me.

Hi I love to take photos as well but the only two sites that have excepted my photos are Fotolia and Big Stock Photo. They are still very picky but I have heard that those two sites are the more reliable ones to use.
