Did you know that it’s quite easy to make a business out of submitting photos online? Selling your photos to thousands of potential buyers that need them for websites, catalogs, books, magazines, ads, or a variety of other uses. This is an income stream about anyone can establish. To get paid to take photos online all you need a decent digital camera, an internet connection, and some creativity. At least, according to this lady from a product I’ve recently been looking into..She says the more photos you have, and the more they get downloaded, the more you make.

Your Best Camera Is The One You Have With You
I can’t remember where I originally heard that but it is true. Nowadays our phones often include very nice cameras. Don’t get in your own way by thinking you have to get some expensive camera with 3 types of lenses and a camera case first. First, consider the quality of the camera on your phone, it’s the one you’ll have with you.
