16- START A PHOTOGRAPHY “YOUTUBE” CHANNEL
Watching videos is an easy way to take in information and many prefer it to text. Billions of people visit YouTube each year, so it’s the perfect place to host a photography education or gear review channel.
The potential to make money ultimately comes down to the number of people that view your videos. As your viewer numbers increase, you’ll be able to sign up to affiliate programs that enable your YouTube channel to become an advertising platform.
There are a lot of YouTube channels already, so if you decide to do a YouTube channel, it will have to be good, full of information to succeed. I checked on several and this one is real good, if you want to use a comparison:
17- Specialize in a photography niche:
If you want to succeed in this program, you need to specialize in a particular subject of photography to really succeed. There are photographers who are wedding photographers, there are photographers who are children’s photographers, and there are those who specialize in school photos. But, if you want to succeed at this, you would have to pick one. You won’t be able to succeed doing several (or your chances aren’t as good, I should say).
BABY OR CHILDREN’S PHOTOGRAPHER:
PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS PERSON:
There are probably other ideas on photography niches, but, this should give you a good idea. If you think you are going to make money as a “landscape” artist, then, I can warn you now, there are millions of photographers who are trying to make that work. That is not a niche that you can sell, like portrait photography.
This concludes the series on: How to make money with photography! I hope you got some ideas you can work with. Good luck!

Now I have gone this far, I hope you are not thinking that I am just grasping for straws. The remaining subjects are legitimate. And this one is interesting. Just by developing a website or special page on the social media, such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter, and others, and you get big numbers, you can make some serious money. Brands will see your numbers and want to promote their product on you website.
There are dedicated websites and apps that connects you to brands. Some of the more well-known apps include Takumi and Tribe. Here’s how to make your social media account attractive to brands:
Large follower numbers;
High levels of interaction (likes and comments) on your posts;
Consistency in terms of subject and style.
14- MONETIZE YOUR BLOG:
If you already have a blog then you are half-way there. If you don’t have one, now is the time to start. Check out this guide to WordPress to help.
Here are some potential sources of income from your blog:
Affiliate advertising: use a plugin like PrettyLinks to generate income from products you mention.
Display advertising: get paid for clicks on ads you set up using Google Adsense. Or use AdSanity to direct sell advertising space.
Sponsorsored Posts: get paid by companies to write about their products or services.
The key to blogging success is organic traffic. The kind of traffic you get by ranking for keywords on search engines. IN order to get organic traffic, you need killer content as well as some SEO knowledge. Checkout PhotoBlog’s guide on SEO for photographers.
Remember to tell your friends and family about your blog. Likewise, link to your blog from your social media accounts. The more visitors you get, the more potential you have to make money.
Events provide great opportunities for photographers to make money. You’ll have a ready-made customer base in the form of attendees, who will happily pay for a photo of a memorable moment.
Look at local listings to see which events are scheduled in your area. Look out for:
Always contact the organizers prior to the event to offer your services– don’t just show up. It’s also a good idea to visit the venue before the event, so you can scope out the best angles.
Following the event, allow access to low resolution, watermarked images via an online gallery, so people can view before they buy.
Use a platform like Snapped4U to submit your event gallery for attendees to browse and purchase from. There’s no initial cost to you: simply set the purchase price for images and then Snapped4U retains a percentage of the sale price of each photo.

10. Sell Images Through Galleries:
How many times have you gone to a “photo art gallery”? Unfortunately, most people don’t even know they exist. A larger town that has an Art Gallery, will probably have one that you could see. We have a large building that someone put together a place where artists can rent 10 X 12 space and they can display their own art work, or for the artists who draw, you could watch them draw while seeing their displays as well.
Check out galleries in your local area and talk to the owners. Find out what they are looking for and be prepared with examples of your work to show them.
You may be asked to pay for wall space, a monthly fee, or a percentage of profits. Some galleries will print your photos for you, but if you prefer to control the quality of your work, it’s best to organize printing yourself with a quality photo printer.
11. Become a Photography Assistant:
Becoming a photographer’s assistant is one of the quickest ways to earn extra income, learn about the industry, and improve as a photographer.
Research and find photographers you admire, then make contact with them. Enthusiasm is great but you need hard evidence of your skills: a portfolio or a link to your website is essential.
You need to be willing to take on a variety of tasks: from ensuring gear is ready to organizing & editing images.
12. Publish in The Press
Have you taken photos of something that is newsworthy, like a local event? Selling your photos to the press can generate extra income and is a great example of how to make money with photography.
It’s important to take plenty of photos. Likewise, try to get as much detail as possible and from different angles. In news photography, the information conveyed in a photo is as important as composition. You can select the best for submission later.
Here are the best websites that connect photographers with journalists and press that may be interested in purchasing photos:
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.
In fact, I have a photo touch up service available. Here is my promo ad:
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
NOTE: Check out the main menu page of 123photogo.com, and notice there is a shop for purchasing such items. New winter photos available for sale soon. And getting ready for Christmas specials.
