Top ways to earn money with Photography:
Do you love taking pictures and are often dragged into the beauty of the art that takes place in photography? Well if you know, photography in itself is a huge profession and is one form of art which is widely accepted and adopted by enthusiasts too as their favorite pastime.
The question we resolve here is, whether there is money involved with the art? Well you will be surprised to how much money photography get you. And that is regardless of the skill level you are or if you are a seasoned professional and is looking to know more ways to siphon money from it.
The ways enlisted below should give a fair idea about how to make money through photography.
Product photography for online sale
Most products that you see in online adverts and print widely bank on the fascination it creates in the eyes of the reader. It’s a trick where even a low priced object can be converted into a high selling, profitable venture. This is because selling takes place largely due to the presentation of the product. That’s the key and makes all the difference. You can try putting up a website with a portfolio and profile to attract clients who need photographs of their products to boost their sale.
Using the right angles and presenting the product in the best way is not a skill that is inbred in all. A good learning curve with regards to taking good product photography, close-up pictures with alluring angles and understanding of supporting equipments like lights, tents, etc is the key to this growing trend. Editing with world class software’s is another way of boosting the above skills.
High quality photographs for graphic designing
Graphic designing is becoming a fast paced industry and is most widely used for anything small like a brochure design to a major design layout of a website. Photographs make an integral part of such layouts and if you have the right kind of photographs, a little knowledge of editing tools and understanding of vector graphics software’s, there is a big market and huge money allotted to this segment.
Sale of prints
If you possess great skills in photography and your clicks are quite the attraction, chances are that you can sell the prints and make money for it. People who cherish and treasure art many a times purchase picture frames to hang on their walls and if your photograph is worthy enough you might sell it at a high price or sell several prints of the same picture. Plus there is no particular area that you have to look at, all it needs is some handy camera attributes and the right moment.
Purchase of photographs by media blogs and websites
If you are a news person you should be able to judge what area and type of news is selling in the current trend. You can utilize your photography skill by being at the right place where you feel coverage is possible. News outlets also pick up generic images of places that often are mentioned in the news or match the current trending news.
Apart from media websites, the newest addition to internet trend is blogging. These blogs have a fierce competition and can pay well for photographs that are pertaining to a subject of their interest. If you get a chance to click a very interesting picture of a celeb or a place in demand, these blogs too can pay well for it. Original photographs are always welcomed as blogs no more carry pictures from the search engine due to copyright issues.
A photographer needs both skills to take a picture and at the same time beautify it to make it appealing. Many freelance websites need only editing skills for existing photographs too and are said to pay handsomely for good work. For developing such a skill, software such as Adobe Photoshop or GIMP should be studied thoroughly to gain potential to earn good amount of money online.
Wedding album photographs
Wedding photography is one of the easiest and fastest growing ways to earn money. To showcase your skills in the area you can start a website with your portfolio on it or accompany someone who is already an established name in the market. Even free photography offers should be placed initially to get a foothold in the business.
Portrait photography is a great way to get some bucks from your skill and gives much more flexibility in your hand as compared to wedding photography. Here you can experiment with lights, angles and more. Again, assisting or doing free photography to get known is a good way to begin.
Photographs for greeting cards
Greeting cards have always been one of the warmest ways of expressing feelings. If your photograph has the power that can capture such emotion, photographs can be sold for greeting cards and can be a huge hit for years. Plus there are so many events that take place making way for more opportunities.
T-shirts that carry message, funny jokes and pictures of favorite sports car, celeb, places, etc sell quite a lot today. You can benefit from such a market by taking picture of such most wanted places and people and convert it into a t-shirt. Additional graphic designing can make it a fun job which pays well too.
