    How to make money on Photography

    I'm going to wait a year or two and then sell my current stock of Azo paper on eBay for a hundred bucks a sheet. I'll even throw in a gram of Amidol with it for another twenty five dollars.

    This is what the old pioneers of industry would do, and did do.

    In the mean time I'll contact my small negatives on Azo and have a big write up about how they are printed on the special Azo paper and developed archival with Amidol etc.. Should catch a fortune on the description alone.

    Ideas take off where products end...

    If you'd like to make money at photography, especially in the future, then don't give up your day job.

    Sell your photo equipment and use the money to buy stocks.

    To paraphrase Richard Branson, "To become a millionaire in photography, get a billion dollars and open a studio."
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Reminds me of a Michael Collins axiom - The Three stages in a Photographer's Life:

    Phase 1: Make all your studio equipment
    Phase 2: Buy all your studio equipment
    Phase 3: Sell all your equipment and get a real job!
