Yesterday I challenged you to take one photo every day for the next 21 days. And as a dangling carrot to help you build a habit of getting your camera out every day, I brought back our $1,000 Photo Challenge.
Of course, I’d love it if you learned to take better pictures this week because of this challenge. But I’d love it even more if you sold these photos for extra income.
A couple months ago, I reached out to some of our members on Facebook and asked if they have any examples of photos that have earned them more than $500.
Here are just a few they sent me…
Snapped at a wedding, she’s sold this photo as a fine-art print and also as greeting cards, earning her an upwards of $750.
Theresa St. John:
Taken on her front porch, this photo has sold as fine art and as stock with royalties totaling $600.
This photo, along with a cover image and story for a regional sailing magazine netted over $500 for Marylinda.
And Lisa Top sold these three together printed on metal for $750…
Incidentally, Lisa says her best-selling stock photo right now is termite droppings, here…
Guess that just goes to show that the world needs photos of EVERYTHING!
I’ve asked these ladies to tell you just one thing they learned through our programs that helped them each make different decisions about where they would sell their photos and how much they would ask for them. Look out for their insider advice over the coming days.
