Updated on January 13, 2011

Taking pictures is a hobby that has been able to bring out the creative flair in many people. There are millions of people who take pictures each day, but there are only a few who are able to take exceptional pictures and these are the people who really make money. As a hobby photographer you may not be really be thinking of the money that you can make from the hobby, but the opportunities are many and it is quite simple to make money taking pictures.

The best option of making money is right in your home. The popularity of various stock photography sites on the internet has made it easy for you to make money online by selling the pictures that you take. Stock photography sites maintain a stock of pictures on various themes and topics. All you have to do is to take still pictures of various things, sceneries, animals or anything that you can think of. Before you actually take pictures to sell or display on a photography stock site, you would do well to read the rules of submission that are listed there. This will help you to create pictures that are compatible to the site.

The next step in the process of making money taking pictures for the stock photography sites is to take the picture. Select the situation, theme or object and then take a clear picture with adequate lighting. Once the picture is taken, you can edit it with the various software that are available, so that the quality of the picture is enhanced. Once you have completed this process, you are ready to submit the picture. You can submit hundreds or thousands of such photographs to various sites. After submission, whenever someone downloads a picture that you have clicked and submitted, you will be able to get a commission helping you to earn money from home.
