How to sell your photos

By Andrew Hudson Published: October 17, 2013 Updated: October 16, 2014

The easiest way to cash in with photography is microstock. You can sign-up online with one or more microstock agencies and upload your photos. Then wait for people to license your work and watch the funds get deposited into your bank account. Ooh, that sounds nice.

You can also sell your photos on your own photography website, and on products such as postcards, greeting cards and posters.

Additionally you can be a freelance photographer and sell your photos to photography magazines and postcard publishers. Me, I self-published 14 photography books.

By law, your photos automatically get copyright protection when you take them. But, for extra coverage, you can register your copyright online. You can submit a group of photos (any number, as long as they are copyrighted by the same person in the same year) for one fee of $35 (subject to change).
