I don´t have experience selling pics; however, I have read something about the topic. There are people who can make a living by taking pictures or uplod them to sites that offer other sites good pics for their products and other matters. I once came across a site that asked for all kinds of good photos. They had a topic list from where to choose. I don´t have a good camera and I´m trying to get engaged into other area, if I weren´t, I would stick with this trade which is a good one

Tried this before hand and unless you are a very gifted photographer, it will be a while until you really make some serious cash.

I've just registered on a stockphoto site. I think it is very hard to make enough money only from stock photography. Of course, there are some very fortunate and diligent people that can make a fortune from stock photos, but mostly it is pocket money.

DO you have any payment review ? how much they pay per photo ?

@elanalove Mostly they pay a few cents per sellings. You have to have a niche that people would buy. As many people do stocks you have to have a lot of photos to get some sells or you have to make photos that are unique and that people are interested. And the minimum is to have a very good camera to make good quality photos. Good luck!

@elanalove Hehe. Photographers earn a lot of money and few companies online are accepting photos and pay you for cash.

I have heard some earned from such apps or websites but I don't think they are that much worth and earnings are lesser as well
