7 Ways to Make Money with Photography
Start selling your prints
Craft fairs / art festivals
Local businesses need pretty pictures of their products. Think food based businesses, local coffee shops, handmade shops, small businesses, etc.
Portrait photography is huge whether it comes to Family, Newborns, Seniors and so forth.
Wedding photography is probably one of the quickest way to get into making money with photography. Where do you start? Well you need a website, social media, and begin advertising. There are so many local wedding fairs so make sure to get a booth and get your name out there.
HUGE HUGE HUGE!!!!!! Workshops are awesome! This is where you actually get paid to teach what you love! Ugh, I am so excited and amped up about workshops lately! If you haven’t done so make sure to head on over and sign up for my Email list specifically for workshops I will be holding in the future!
Blogging and/or Youtube
Ok, so blogging and Youtube take a ton of time, effort, and persistence, but it is well worth it in the end. With blogging you can create a passive income through affiliate marketing and so much more. If you haven’t done so, make sure to check out my post on How to make Money Blogging.
Youtube, is an amazing place for creatives. You can actually get paid by Youtube via their ads. You can also use things like affiliate links in your comments, or you can refer your audience back to your blog!!
I haven’t ever dabbled in stock photography as I sell my own prints right here on this website ; however, I wanted to bring up the idea because so many people do this and it is definitely another way to make money with photography.
