Making Extra Money With A Digital Camera

Copyright (c) 2007-2017

There are quite a few of us who are relentlessly in search of ways to make extra cash. By using items that we already have and adding to it some brain power and motivation, we may surprise ourselves with some of the things we can come up with. It could be something as simple as taking a photograph. Yeah, anyone can shoot, but how many possess the eye to actually do it well? Not many. Now let's group these people together into a percentage. How many more of these people actually take an interest or have the patience to take pictures of their family, special occasions and events? Of course some do, but still there are some who don't; yet it seems almost impossible to imagine anyone who doesn't appreciate having photographs of themselves, family and their memories, right? This is where a potential opportunity presents itself.

Hoping that your camera skills are not too bad, you can start brainstorming some ideas as far as how you could use your camera to start making some extra money. Pets make great subjects and most owners would love having pictures of their pets but rather not struggle with trying to get that perfect shot. Also, you could offer a service where you photograph pets with their owners. They make wonderful gifts and additions to the family albums. You can charge for your service, plus you time and offer the photograph in the digital or printed version.

Make yourself available to attend events such as performances or parades. Take pictures of the people who are participating and then sell it to them and their family members. Think about it, neither performer or family member may have time to actually capture the moment. You would be doing them a favor and at the same time making a profit.

Landmarks also make great scenic backgrounds. Locating historic places in your area and then offering tourists your service of taking their picture in front of it is a great way to make a profit. The only gamble is that a lot of tourists have cameras of their own, so finding the ones who do not have a digital camera is the real task. You can offer them the option of seeing what their picture on your camera looks like as opposed to them only guessing what theirs may look like on their non-digital.

Different contests like animal and fishing contests provide you with the opportunity to take pictures of the contestants. A lot of people at these kinds of events are so concerned with the actual event that they forget to bring a camera and would love to have a photograph. Fishermen may want pictures standing next to the all the fish that they caught or just many shots of that one prize fish.

Events like graduations, prom night, and recitals are prefect opportunities to capture those shots that family members of the graduates maybe couldn't capture. For instance they may be seated a great distance from the stage or may not have as great of a shot as you do. These are special moments in peoples lives that they would definitely want captured.

You can take portraits of children for parents. Children's portraits come out best when you capture the beauty of their innocence; such as while they are looking away from the camera, while they are playing with a toy, or smiling in another direction. You can also take pictures of different families and put them on postcards for different holidays and events. You can even get more creative and make the prints available online so that existing customers can refer their friends and family to the option of purchasing larger prints if desired. Also providing them with the option to have their photographs printed out on t-shirts, mugs, key chains, and other items serve as great gifts.

There are plenty of other unmentioned ideas that are out there. Just be creative and use your resources. For example, taking pictures of used cars and selling them to dealers who may not have pictures of their new inventory; or teaming up with a freelance journalist to provide pictures to go with their stories. Many people also sell their photographs to newspaper and magazine companies, and real estate agencies that could maybe use additional photographs to include in their headlines, ads, and brochures. Different Sale Methods

1. When you take your photographs, provide all of your subjects with a web address where they can view thumbnails and order high resolution digital versions or prints...

or

2. Collect the customer's detailed information, payment and arrange to have the photographs sent to them. Don't forget to provide your information in case they want to hire you for something else...

or

3. Charge a fee and then email it to them later. That is the advantage of digital photography. After you take the picture, you can show it to the subject and they can choose to buy it only if they like it...

or

4. Carry a computer with CD-RW and give the customers their digital portrait on a disk.

Most of us fear what we don't know and have a tendency to doubt ourselves even when we know in our hearts that we can do something. Instead of shying away from a new situation, which is what we are naturally inclined to do when it comes to fear; we should muster up enough confidence to push ourselves forward.
