Earning money with photos

Updated on January 13, 2012

Earning money with your photos online

I joined Hubpages at the beginning of 2010, I’ve never been that good at writing but wanting to give it a go and see what I could do. After a month or so I discovered a website called RedGage where I could back link my Hubs and gain more views to my work. I soon realised I could also upload photos to the site and be paid for doing so. This was better for me as I’m so much better at taking photos then I will be at writing.


When I joined RedGage I didn’t have a proper camera, I just used my mobile phone camera, which was a Sony K800i. Using my Sony k800i did limit to what I could take photo wise. Earlier this year I got myself a bridge camera Fuji HS10, Ok it not a DSLR but it works for me and my next buy will be a DSLR. I hope you enjoy my photos and it you would like to join RedGage, click here

I soon became interested in Marco photography, the amazing detail that you wouldn’t normally see when you are looking at something. It’s as thrown a new light how I look a bugs and plants now days.

When I joined RedGage, I didn’t know anything about taking a photo, I’ve learnt along the way. I’ve still got a long way to go but I’m keen to learn and always amazed by what photos I can take.

On RedGage I’m known as Kevin1877uk and not Arren123. I hope that you have enjoyed some of my work, thank you the taking the time to look

What I've earned so far with RedGage

      Kevin, your photos are great! I'm on RedGage but have only put up a few photos and hubs so far and have made the grand sum of $1.09 as of today. I quite like just browsing on RedGage, there is no trolling or anything and it's a pretty low key social networking experience which suits me fine. Voted up, more people need to see that lovely moth photo.

      I joined RedGage to drive traffic to my online articles. But I have found members are more interested in viewing photos. Thanks for sharing your views.

      Interesting to see someone making money at RedGage. I've been a member there for about a year now, but slowed down on my participation because the pennies trickle in so slowly. With photographs as great as yours, they probably get featured often, which will definitely help boost your earnings. Congratulations - this hub is rated up too!
