How to Sell Photographs Online
Here is how it works. First, you build a nice collection of some great photos. Secondly you want to begin selling them. You sign up with a stock photography company and in return, if someone buys your photo to use in their work, then you get a percentage of each sale. If your work is good enough, and your photos are relevant to a certain topic, they could be worth money.
