The Photographer's Life: Turn Your Pictures into Cash
Those of you who have worked with me in my trainings and workshops know that i like to use a lot of pictures ... "a picture speaks a thousand words". Some pictures i started to share with other people so they could use them in their workshops on GoalsSetting, Teambuilding or for coaching. Now i am looking to take a different course with my photography, selling them online. Instead of finding out how to do that all by myself i decided to take a course: The Photographer's Life.
Let me ask you a very straight forward question:
Can You Take a Simple Photograph?
If yes, you could easily make $200 - $2,000 a week taking photographs in your own backyard... on your family vacations... or anywhere in the world you care to travel
Just think if you could walk into your back yard, kneel down, and snap a photo of a flower in your garden... or capture a shot of your child digging in the sandbox... and then get paid $25... $50... even $150 or more for each one Or imagine if, every time you went on vacation with your camera in tow, you could turn those pictures you snap into $150 $400 or even $800 each The good news is: You can.Enjoy Freedom, Prestige and Luxury as You Travel the World Snapping Photos of Romantic, Exotic People and Locales. And Then Get PAID For It!
As a working photographer, you can pick-up-and-go any time you choose get on a flight to any number of far-flung destinations and enjoy the freedom of the photographers life. Imagine traveling to Kauai, a Hawaiian island. Renowned for its enchanting beauty, cascading emerald streams, flower bedecked mountains and swaying palm fringed shores, you stay there for a week, all expenses paid. Or how about traveling to Tahiti for a vacation, but treating it like a self-assignment. You shoot plenty of pictures that you can sell when you return home. Or imagine finding yourself in the Bahamas where most of your accommodations are paid for plus touring a local zoo and swimming with dolphins on a nearby island, all for free.
Play your cards right, and you could find yourself on the invitation list at some of the worlds best resorts, hotels, bed-and-breakfasts, eco-retreats, and weekend hideaways, getting all kinds of offers of hospitality invitations for overnight stays dinner on the house and more all compliments of the owners. This lifestyle is closer than you think. And, perhaps the best part is, your hometown is a goldmine of photographic opportunity too. The Worldand Your Hometownis Jam-Packed with Opportunities to Profit from Your Photographs Photo opportunities exist everywhere. On the roadside... at work... while talking with friends... in your backyard... a nearby zoo... special events... festivals... sporting events... pie-eating contests and more... Just take a look around you at magazines, newspapers, books, trade journals, technical manuals, and almost any published material. Look at the cover and flip through the pages. What do you see? Photographs. Someone has to take those pictures. Why not you? Take a look at The Photographer's Life.
Lori Appling is the director of the travel division at American Writers & Artists Inc. (AWAI). For years, their travel division focused on travel writing showing people how to write travel articles for publicationand how to use that skill as a way to fund their trips and get paid. But they realized that they were overlooking a very big opportunity when it came to photographs. You see, more and more, the folks who took their travel writer program were writing in to say they were having luck selling not just articles, but, increasingly, articles with photos
t turns out, editors love receiving photos with articles simply because it makes their job easier. Whats more, 80% of the photos you see in publications are shot by freelancers. A glossy magazine photo can earn you anywhere from $500 to $1,200 if, that is, you know what photo editors are after something youll soon learn. and follow a few simple tricks of the trade to taking better photos you can start immediately taking great photos that sell.
That is...when you understand one simple rule: you will only sell something (a solution - in this case a photo) when there is a need (for a specific photo).
It's simply this: Editors dont buy what they dont need. You might be the finest photographer ever to hold a camera. You might own the finest equipment money can buy and shoot thousands of pictures each year. But if you cant find someone who needs the images you create, youll be spinning your wheels. Youll never sell a single photo.
Sounds obvious, doesnt it?
Give an editor what he needs. Yet, even the best photographers often overlook this secret and its why many of them will tell youor want you to believethat it takes years to break into the photography industry or that you have to pay your dues. Its not true. Simply fill a need and youll break intoand succeedin photography far faster than you ever thought possible. If you fill a need the money will start rolling in, even if youre an amateur.
First however, what is it that editors need? And how do you know?
Thats exactly what youll discover in the photography program Turn Your Pictures into Cash: A Comprehensive Program in Taking and Selling Amazing Photographs.
You dont need years of experience and you dont need high-tech equipment to start making money as a photographer at least, not when you have this useful program by your side.
Up until now, photography might have seemed a complicated profession. Or, a profession reserved only for those who had the most rigorous training, the best equipment, and the most artistic eye.
Its simply not true. In Turn Your Pictures into Cash, they have simplified the process so you can start taking saleable photographs within days, even if you only have a simple point-and-shoot camera.
If youre at all interested in learning how to supplement your income, get your travel funded, and take truly breathtaking photographs that sell for hundreds, even thousands of dollars, Turn Your Pictures into Cash is a great place to start your new, lucrative hobby. Use this program and youll start taking saleable photographs within a month, even if all you can do is turn your camera on and set it to "automatic."

I wish you lots of fun and success with your photos...have fun sharing them with friends and family, see them as a great legacy to leave your children, and make money while doing it. And don't forget, make sure you bring your camera wherever you go.
