How To Sell Photos Online: For Both Amateur And Pro Photographers
Making money as a photographer, like a YouTuber or Instagrammer, is all about harnessing that same creativity at the heart of your work and applying it to the monetization of your talents.
It can seem hard to make it when anyone with the newest iPhone can call themselves a “photographer.” But success, for most creators who turn to entrepreneurship, comes down to three things:
- Finding your niche.
- Building an audience.
- Creating several streams of income.
This guide will explore some of the things you should know about selling photos online with resources to help you make your photography-based business a reality.
How to sell photos online: two essential steps
Defining your niche
Every successful photographer has a consistent style or theme that runs through their work. Whether your thing is travel, fashion, cityscapes, nature, food, etc., consistency is key.
People follow other people online to see more of whatever it is that interested them in the first place. People unfollow other people when those expectations aren’t met.
Finding your niche if you want to sell pictures online is typically something you feel your way into as you see which styles and photos resonate with your audience.
Integrate ecommerce into your portfolio
Most photographers have a main portfolio site to showcase their work and let clients hire them.
But by adding ecommerce to it, including the ability to accept payments, you can open several more doors to monetization, like selling courses, physical products, and services.
