How To Start Your Own Amateur Photography Business!!!

Seriously, photos are in such high demand that Getty Images (the parent of iStockphoto) reported annual revenue of $857.6 million in 2007 and since most of their pictures sell for around $2 to $15, it doesn't take a genius to see how lucrative this business can be.

Plus, I also know of five new photo websites that just opened their doors and who are eager to cash in on this growing trend. They are desperate for photos and will pay top dollar for the right ones.
So, if you're looking to break out of the boring, then a "home-based" Internet photography business may be perfect for you.It's a cash-rich opportunity that's allowing thousands of everyday people to make an above average living, from the comfort of their own home.

Ideal for stay-at-home moms, graduates that are in between jobs, students who want some part-time earnings, and even retired couples living on a fixed pension - it's a wonderful way to earn extra money, pay down debts, or to tuck away extra cash for a rainy day.

Imagine having the flexibility to take time off when your kids are sick; to enjoy your retirement without the financial worry; or to sleep in and work later, after you've had a lousy nights sleep?
With This Business You Are in Full Control!

It used to work this way: Graphic and web designers would buy expensive packages of stock photos and they would use whatever images they had available – but now with the explosion of digital cameras and the ease of photo distribution, companies want more options - and PHOTO SITES JUST CAN'T KEEP UP!

Today, companies need more variety to choose from, so they can develop stronger brands and enhance their unique selling proposition (USP). They spend a slue of time searching for photographs with just the right touch; photos with something unique that makes them stand apart from their competitors. And today, photograph sites are franticly searching for people (just like you and me) to upload whatever photos they can get their hands on ...

... Because they know that image buyers are first attracted to websites that have hoards of pictures – however, once they find someone who understands their unique needs, they'll stick to them like glue.
So to grow their selections as FAST as possible, photography sites are offering unheard of commissions – some as high as a 60% for each photo sold. It's amazing!
But what's even better is that with all the graphic enhancing software and the cropping capabilities available, you don't have to submit award-winning photos, or need to invest in any expensive machinery.

When you know what photos are selling like hotcakes, all you need is a trigger-happy camera finger and you'll be able to rake in a slue of cash.
