I have gotten asked quite a bit about how I got up the courage to actually sell my photos online. To be 100% honest with you…. One day, I just decided to do it.
Was I scared? Yes.
Did I think I would sell any? I had mixed feelings, but I was hopeful.
Does it take a lot of work? Yes.
Is it worth it? Yes.
Why do I do it? Because I love photography. I think photos are so incredibly important. This is my true passion and I am so excited to be able to share it with the world.
Now, after this question of how I got up the courage to sell online, I then get asked ‘where can I sell my photos if I don’t have a website?’
