People sell beautiful pictures
I remember that in the summer of 2013 I heard that there are people who take beautiful pictures and sell them, earning money for them to live on. I always liked to take pictures. Where can I sell the beautiful photos I take? I was going through a hard time and I had no money at all. You know, life is so hard sometimes.
I thought I could take good pictures to sell to those who needed them. Do you want to buy good photos? I read on the internet that there are companies that buy representative photos for their business. There are bloggers who need images so they can illustrate their articles. So I started dreaming that I could make money doing what I love.
I started by creating accounts on all kinds of intermediate websites
They give people the opportunity to sell and buy photos. Of course, these sites charged a commission, but that wasn’t a problem if I could sell a lot of beautiful photos.
In my imagination, companies and bloggers would have struggled to buy the images I was making, or even offer extra money, just to be able to use them. I must tell you that, in my imagination, I was already the best photographer in Europe, even on Earth. I have already seen myself rich and famous due to my excellent pictures.
After any beautiful dream comes the awakening, like a shower of cold water. How do I sell the photos I take if I don’t even have a good camera? How can I take beautiful pictures if I leave the house so rarely? I was writing a lot on blogs then. What kind of photos can I take in an old town, where there are only communist apartment buildings and garbage? But most of all, how do I take pictures if I don’t have a camera? Sounds funny to you, doesn’t it? It wasn’t for me, because I needed money and that would have been an easy and pleasant source of income.
The result came naturally. I knew you had to invest first if you wanted to make a profit, so from the money I earned from writing I bought the cheapest camera and left the house to take the most beautiful photos. I photographed everything I came across – trees, butterflies, dogs, cats, cars, flowers, old buildings, statues, birds, landscape, sunset, graffiti on the walls, lanterns, toys, books, fruits and coffee cups.

From dream to reality in selling photos
Now, I’m sure I’m starting to make money selling my photos! I was thinking, happy. I uploaded one of my photos to a site where photos were sold, convinced that I would be successful immediately. The outcome? My photo was rejected. It does not comply do not know the required size there. : D
Disappointed, I decided to use all my photos to illustrate only the blog posts I write. Years have passed. In 2018, I bought a better camera with which I can take beautiful pictures. I’m not thinking about selling them anymore. Sometimes I don’t even post them online. Sometimes I include them in small videos that I upload to YouTube.
Here my photos are successful. People really like my pictures. I know I have a lot of work to do until my pictures look like professional photos. However, I am proud of the pictures I take. I’m waiting for the day when the first company will want to buy my photos. : D Until then, I post them on my blogs and on my YouTube channel.
All photos in this article were taken in October 2018. Where can I sell the beautiful photos I take?
