Stock and mnicrostock is a lot of work for a small return: try Zazzle.com, Cafe Press and similar sites where your photos can be sold as prints, cards, mugs, T-Shirts and a hundred other products. My Zazzle Store at http://www.zazzle.com/practicaps earns a steady income with very little time or efforts on my part.

Hi erbear0879! If your really want to be serious in photography at the same time earn from it, you can start submitting to several microstock sites. Don't forget to check on the most popular photos. Each microstock site has its own advantages and disadvantages. You may find that some of your photos that are already earning from one site will be rejected on another site. Don't let that get to you. Instead, strive harder to get better. Search the net, there are hundreds of sites that talks about photography. Here are a few sites to get you started: istockphotos, shutterstock, fotolia, dreamstime, stockexpert, bigstockphotos, and 123RF (there's a lot more if you'll search them). Meanwhile, you can also join photography forums. Familiarize yourself with photography jargons/terminologies as you will encounter quite a lot of them. Good luck and have fun with your camera.
