    Can we earn money uploading the photos we took with our camera?

    Hi all again,

    I want to know whether is there any sites which pays us money for the photos which we took with our camera's?

    Please share your information.

    Hi Karanthi,

    What you are referring to is called "Stock Photography" ... you can have a read about it here.

    Colin hit it on the head... However, there are many fraudulent web sites which purport to purchase images but, which are simply vehicles to separate you from your hard earned (well, at least my money is hard earned) money. I would look askance at any web site which requires you to either join at a price or somehow pay for posting your pictures.

    Oh, I forgot... The Photographer's Market by Writer's Digest Books provides lots of information regarding where and how to sell your images.

    Apart from stock photo sites you will also find a number of sites that allow you to sell your images. I use a site called Zenfolio but there are others. There's also sites with higher profile where people go to look for art...one is Artist Rising (http://www.artistrising.com/). I recently put some images in here and I'm getting a lot of visits but no sales yet. I'm not sure if I would recommend it yet....it's just another way to cast your bread on the water. So far as I can tell, Artist Rising is an entry point through which one may gain access to other on-line art galleries. Zazzle is another one to look at, I've not tried it. Just do internet searches and see what you find. There are many photographers out there looking for a way to market their work so the competition is robust.

    Good luck and have fun.

    Chuck
