      Hey Metz,

      Yeah being creative definitely helps I think to make money from photos but is something pretty much anyone can have a go at. Of course people with skills will be likely to do much better.

      Yes even smartphones have good enough cameras nowadays :)

    A good digital camera and a creative mind is all one needs to earn money selling photographs. Some years ago i usually had my camera with me always looking out for rare events to capture, i actually sold a couple of the events i captured but now that smartphones come with good cameras one doesn’t need to walk around with digital cameras even and this is an opportunity that doesn’t require a lot of skills to cash into. Thanks for sharing.

    We bloggers make money selling affiliate products, photography is one of the art that we can monetize making money.

    For effective results, once we’re ready with some awesome photographs, we should notify people to know your skills by creating groups on social medias and ask like minded people to join the groups.

    Also if we’ve funds in making a website, we can create portfolio type sites and redirect the social traffic in to the portfolio sites and make them to buy photos for their personal and business purposes would help to make money online.

    And the most effective ways is selling photos on crowd sourcing stock photography sites.
