    How you earn money with your photos?

    Hi guys.

    I´m a beginner photographer and new here.
    I would like earn a few dollars with quality photos that I cautch when I am traveling.
    I have read on a forum that trying sell photos over internet is time losted,
    then another guy has recomended to use the website: [spamspamspamspam]
    he said that people with an google adsense account and good photos earn more money with ADS
    that try selling photos. Because on that site you only need your Adsense ID, and share your photo links
    to earn a few dollars.
    Someone here use that website? And really earn money?


    Regards

    Uh...I'll try my best to respond:

    Work hard. Love your work. Learn your trade. Expect to finance yourself for a long time. Continue working hard.

    I've never tried to sell anything online or gain a profit through internet advertising and I would recommend that you keep in mind that nothing comes easy. The main thing you must keep in mind is that if you want to have your own business you have to think less about yourself and more about your clients - if you cannot add anything of worth to the world you will not profit from it for long - period. If you want a quick couple of bucks then go for your internet scheme.

    I've run my own photography business and it's a tough gig - if you're serious about photography you have to network constantly so the internet is somewhat useful for that but meeting face to face and establishing relationships is the only way to really succeed. Gimmicks only work on fools and usually only once or twice (depending on the caliber of the fool.)

    I don't know if you're just here for a quick answer or if you're actually serious about photography. My hope is the latter but my suspicion is the former.

    Good luck out there.

    I recommend taking classes on the basics of photography and classes on selling and marketing. Join a photography organization whose mission is to help the pro earn a decent living. Find a person who would be willing to serve as your mentor and coach, helping you along the way.

    But Mr.Clark and I worked so hard on our responses

    Yes, I agree - I didn't really pay attention to the fact that he's been posting this question everywhere.

    Oh well.

    Welcome Home Carl86,

    It's definitely hard work !
    But if you spend anytime at ISPPhotoBomb,
    you are not going to get a lot accomplished.
    They look A Bunch Of Naughty Girls, and
    that sort of thing is not good for business.

    Eating Spam with baked beans, and eggs ...
    Not good for business either, definitely avoid
    that combination !

    Get a good day job.

    I do not sell my photographs, however I have an arrangement that I send photographs to a manufacturer and the manufacturer sends offroading vehicle parts to me.
