In the continuing series of “How to make money in photography”, here is Part 3 of 5
7- MAKE MONEY WITH YOUR EDITING SKILLS:
Photo editing is an art that is becoming real important as the final stage of creating photos. The work with Photoshop, or Lightroom is a big key to making clients happy. And if you become skilled at this, then there is always someone looking for help with this.
8- SELL LIGHTROOM PRESETS:
It’s also possible to sell custom Presets and filters for programs such as Lightroom and Photoshop . These allow users to apply your edit settings to their photos with just a few clicks. For example, presets are particularly invaluable in wedding photography, where a consistent editing style needs to be applied simultaneously to a large number of photos.
9- SELL PHOTOS DIRECTLY ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
If you have a large social media following, you already have a ready-made customer base. Check which of your images have the most likes so that you know what is most likely to sell.
Simply inform your followers what is available and make use of payment sites, such as PayPal or Shopify, for payment. To encourage sales you can offer various incentives. Try promotions such as:
- Limited time availability
- Limited editions of prints
- Signed prints
