Photograph People:

Duhh! Right? Well, it is probably the most conventional way of making money with your digital camera. Pro photographers make a lot of bucks just by pushing the button of their camera. I probably shouldn’t say “just by the push of button” as photography is an art and to reach this level where you can earn money in the field of digital photography “just by the push of button”, you need to work very hard.
If you are great with your camera then this will be a piece of cake. You can photograph weddings, births, couples, families and hell lot of events that are held every year.

To earn money in this niche you have to be great with your camera as people want their photographs taken perfectly so to be successful in this niche of digital photography you have to please them with your exceptional clicks.

Sell your Photos Online:
Stock image industry is a 5 billion dollar market. Just Shutter stock, the biggest website of stock photos has 70 million images in its database and thousands of more are uploaded every minute, let alone the other stock image databases.

Selling your photos online is probably the best way you can
earn money with digital photography. And you know what the best thing about stock photography is? You don’t have to be a very good photographer to earn money from it. You don’t have to be Ansel Adams to earn money by selling stock photos. You can just capture simple images of anything you want and upload them to one of the stock websites and boom, you are done. Now you have to wait for them to be downloaded and you’ll be paid a commission each time the photos are downloaded.

The commissions start from $1 and go up depending on the photo. Let’s assume you are paid $1 for a photograph and it gets downloaded a thousand times, you’ll get $1000 from one photograph. Multiply the amount with 100 photographs, rinse and repeat. Pretty awesome. Isn’t it?

Now you might be wondering, why would people pay to download photographs when they can download easily by a simple google image search? The answer is “Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)”. DMCA protects your digital work from being used commercially without your consent. So people pay you to download image which gives them the license to use your image as they like and you make money.

Here are a few great stock websites on which you can earn money by selling photos.

Google ‘stock photos’ and you’ll find hundreds of them. Choose some good ones, upload your photos and make money.

Once you have enough “fan-following”, you can hold some free classes about basics. You don’t even have to get out of your room, you can teach them online if you have a good webcam, a computer and an internet connection.

After giving them free lessons you can offer them paid advance courses. If you are a good teacher then people will surely enroll in your courses and you’ll make money by teaching digital photography from the comfort of your home.
