Being a single mom isn’t an easy job; you have to take care of your child or children while working. If you are a mother that loves taking high-quality photos, you could turn that hobby into a full-time job. Selling stock photograph is a very cool way to earn lots of money while still taking care of your child or children.

So let’s dive in and see how it is done.

How does it work?

If you have a digital camera, and you can take excellent photos, you can sell your photos to stock libraries, for print-on-demand products, or to sites for prints. Stock libraries buy and sell high-quality digital photos to use on website, products, in books, and even in ads. Although the library will take some commission out of every sale, your photo makes.

One of the best ways to make passive income streams is by selling photos through a stock site. The good thing about selling photos online is that you can upload a photo once and sell it over and over again, as much as you like. Although before you can get on a stock site, you might have to submit a selection of picture which will be processed before you can be accepted. After you get accepted, you can then become a stock library contributor.

You must note that when you sell a photo through a stock library, you are not selling the photo, you are selling a license to use the photo; so don’t think you are giving away your photo because you are not!

What should you shoot?

There are different categories of stock photos, in fact, the list of the classes of stock photos are limitless. The world is your customer. You can choose to shoot a particular niche that you are very interested in, or you can opt to shoot random categories of stock photos, the choice is all yours.

However, no matter what you are shooting, you have to make sure that you are shooting something that lots of people like.

How much can you earn?

The amount you can make depends on you. You can make millions of dollars from selling stock photos, but it all depends on how dedicated you are to the business. The truth is that a business that is not dedicated to will not be successful.

So what do you need to get started?

You need a digital camera that takes sharp images. You should also take some shots and pick few of your best shots and make a portfolio. You can also sign up on photography sites. If they like your photos, they will sign you up. And you will be on your way to making millions.
