Now that you understand what to take pictures of, let me explain the many ways that you
can make money with your photography. As I have mentioned earlier in this category guide, there are plenty of outlets for every type of picture.In this section, we will discuss the methods and options for making a living with your pictures --and more importantly - show you how easily it is done.

Upload Pictures To Stock Photo Sites
One of the best ways to make money with your photos is to upload them to stock photo sites.
When you upload your pictures there, then anyone who wants that type of picture can buy it and
download it. When they buy it, you get a percentage of the fee.
You’ll get paid over and over for the photos you upload here!

What Are Stock Photos?
Stock photos are images that are not taken for a specific product, company, or service. Rather they are a generic or “stock model” that can be used for a variety of purposes and a lot of times for more than one purpose.
The main benefit to a company using stock photos rather than setting up a photo shoot is cost. 
Only the very large businesses have the budget for hiring a photographer and setting up photo
shoot.

For example, a large hamburger chain like McDonald’s might set up their own  photo shoots for
their products, but a smaller local business would probably choose to purchase some stock photos
to use in their promotional items.

Stock photography sites encourage professionals, amateurs and hobbyists alike to upload their
photos. These sites get almost all of their photos from individuals just like you.
Stock photography sites supply the business world with their creative tools to finish their projects,
without having to hire expensive photographers. As I mentioned earlier, if a company wants a
specific shot in their brochure, it is often easier, faster, and cheaper for them to spend the money
on a stock photograph  than it is to hire a photographer and models, and schedule a photo shoot.
Stock photographs are saviors for these types of situations, where a photo shoot is just not feasible.
And remember that you get a percentage of the price that the company paid for all that simplicity,
speed, and convenience.!

Who Buys Stock Photos?
The majority of industries require photos for a number of reasons. Web designers need them for
the  never-ending stream of websites they design for clients. Businesses need them for marketing
purposes. The media folks thrive on photos to highlight news stories.

Magazine editors obviously need photos. If you can sell a photo to a magazine, depending on how
big it is, it can be a very nice payday. Capture a candid shot of a celebrity on your Smartphone and
you could find yourself holding a jackpot in your hands.

Are Stock Photos Just One Of Those Short-term Fads?
Absolutely not! The fact is, there will never cease to be a demand for new photos. Advertisers and
marketers know that the proper photos can create a bond with the customer and can make them
feel more at ease about buying whatever they happen to be selling.

So you’re always going to be able to make money from simply uploading your photos until we stop
being such a media-dependent society. Frankly, I don’t ever see that happening!
Here are two little gold nuggets of information that I learned a long time ago about starting a new
career:
•     Never underestimate how much you don’t know
•     Do not carry old assumptions and thought patterns into a new content area
Just because you would NEVER dream of buying a photograph, does not mean that it is not a
profitable option for other people worldwide.

Remember, you’ll earn a percentage of the revenue every single time one of your pictures is downloaded.

While that may not seem like much money for each download, it really adds up when you realize
that photos can get downloaded thousands of times. This what I like to call “Set and Forget” (or residual) income.  You do a bit of work setting it up, and then the money just keeps rolling in with no additional effort on your part. Now, let’s take a look at some of these stock photography sites so that you can decide which ones you want to use.
