We get a lot of questions about making money from photography – so I thought it might be interesting to find out how many of our readers have actually done it.
If your answer is yes – HOW? Was it through selling an image on a stock photography site, doing some wedding photography, selling an image to a publication…. or are you a PRO?
If your answer is no – have you tried? Do you think you will try?
PS: let me kick off things with an answer to my own question:
- Yes I have made money from my photography
- I used to semi-regularly do weddings. I was ‘that guy’ in my friendship group who used to get asked to do wedding for friends. I was never a ‘pro’ and always tried to dissuade people from hiring me – but people seemed to like the results. In the end I stopped doing it mainly because I started doing other things in weddings (I became a minister and started conducting ceremonies).
- More recently I’ve sold a number of images on micro stock sites.
Over to you – have you made any money from your photography?
