The world of photography is an exciting place to be. There are classes you can take, books you can read, websites you can visit, etc to learn from and further your knowledge about cameras and taking pictures.

There are a few ways you can make money taking pictures. If you develop a mindset of putting forth a little bit of effort, and take time a day to always learn a little more, you can really start to make an income with photography.

One way to make money with photography is to actually take pictures!

Think about that. If you have a decent camera, and know a few people needing pics for events like graduation, weddings, baby showers, and the like, you can develop a clientele.

Charge small fees since you are just starting. Make your own business cards to give off a more professional presence. You can put in ads, make flyers for community bulletin boards, and have people do word of mouth marketing for you. Start networking with your clients and figure out who they know and if they need pictures done as well. Give them your card and let the word of mouth marketing do its job!

A good tip would be to start learning about marketing. This is how you will get new business.

Another great way to make money with pictures is to sell your photos

There are multiple sites on the web to post your work for people to download and use. You get the royalties and people get your picture. Flickr is a good site to keep in mind. Deviant Art is another one. Just look online for what people are saying about the different sites. What's best about all of this is that this is a residual income. That's money that can keep on being made well after the initial work is done.

Those are just a couple tips for making money online. If you have other ways or techniques, I encourage you to leave a comment about it!!!
