PHOTOGRAPHY

Every month, hundreds of different magazines are published, all requiring photographs to brighten the pages. Many of these are from amateur and semi-professional sources. Just take a look at the weekly women’s magazines. You will see at least one section of readers’ photographs in each magazine, with payment to each contributor.

With a good basic camera you can easily take photographs of a standard suitable for magazine or postcard use. Check out the magazines that cover topics of interest and see if they encourage contributions. Postcards usually have company details on the reverse. Write to companies for their requirements.

I would suggest you contact the International Freelance Photographer Organisation. With 60,000 members worldwide, their aim is to help you make money from your photography. Visit their website www.aipress.com for more details.

They actively promote the stock database and our photographers to a wide variety of buyers guaranteeing you worldwide exposure. They also provide you with the tools and client base to be successful; you keep 85% of the profits.

Images are sold on a royalty free basis which means there is a one time purchase fee for the unlimited use of an image per buyer. You are free to sell your images over and over again and raise or lower prices as you see fit. Unlike traditional agencies you are in control of your own work; you decide which photos to upload and how much to charge for them. You maintain all rights to the photos. You can categorize and add keywords to your images so they can be found by buyers.

Photostockplus.com markets its image database through many innovative means on the internet as well as through industry specific resources. They have relationships with hundreds of companies on the look out for fresh stock. Their sister website shares the identical photo database and is heavily geared and marketed towards the stock buyers to help maximize your image sales.

Camera Dollars System
Most websites would be pretty dull without graphics of some form, which means there is a continuous demand for new photographs to use and people are paying incredibly high fees for pictures – any and all kinds of pictures. So, in return, there are websites, like PhotoStockPlus, mentioned above, that collect these pictures and then sell them. You don’t need to be a professional photographer and you only need a basic digital camera to earn from any photographs you take. There is also the opportunity to earn monthly residual commissions from all the digital photos you submit online.

Brian Moore has come up with a system he shows you that allows you to partner very quickly and sell the simplest of your digital pictures. For example, if you’re going away at any time, just take a few extra pictures and you may end up paying for the entire trip!

• How to put yourself in a buyer’s shoes and always shoot to sell – find out what buyers are looking for and the easiest ways for you to deliver exactly what they need
• Who pays the highest rates – and how to get them to not just accept your work but beg for it!
• How to easily find websites that will practically beg you for your photos – and who’ll be willing to pay a premium for each photo you submit to them
• How to select the right keywords to use with your photos when you upload them online
• How to dramatically improve your chances of getting each one of your photos accepted by photo sites.

Once again, you don’t need any experience, in fact, this system favours people with little or no writing experience and shows you where people will pay you to write articles, blog entries, headlines, and other forms of online writing and even shows you where you can get paid to edit various websites’ clumsy typos! This writing training manual alone contains well over 100 pages of valuable content.

Miscellaneous Ideas

ENGRAVING

A prospective kitchen table enterprise that can offer various options for those seeking engraving whether for decorative, celebratory, or commemorative reasons, or else simply seeking to have their personal possessions engraved and consequently made less likely prospects for the opportunist thief.

Engraving can take many varied forms from etching onto glass, to simply printing names and addresses onto key rings, making commemorative plaques, and so on. Consult craft magazines for essential equipment.

Your customers will come from all sections of the community, from private individuals, to jewelers shops, clubs and societies, sports centres and so on.

PICTURE FRAMING

Here the demand is for high quality craftwork, which if it can also come at a realistic price, will command a steady stream of eager customers. As for so many other craft and art services, a wealth of ‘how to’ books are available to guide the novice through to professional status as a picture framer. Equipment need not eat too heavily into your capital and can be located in most of the major craftwork and model making magazines on the newsagents’ shelves, as well as in advertising publications.

Customers might come from the general public, via advertisements placed in the press or in shop windows. Alternatively you could provide a service to local artists and art shops, photographers, antique shops selling antique prints, print and poster shops and so on.

ACCOMMODATION ADDRESS SERVICE

The service provided is that of allowing others to have their mail forwarded to your own or your business address. Often the reason is one of protecting the customers’ own privacy; at other times it’s because customers live in accommodation that isn’t their own, and from which they have no absolute entitlement to operate a business.

All you do is allow customers to use your address, following which you will have their mail forwarded to them on a prearranged basis. Take a look at the many advertisements offering such services in local papers, and the scope will no doubt become apparent, particularly where an attractive city centre or decidedly rural address can be offered. It may be that certain customers will have particular requirements; some might want their post forwarding daily; some by recorded post; some will be happy with a weekly delivery. Your charges will be dependent upon what specific requirements might be expressed.

Contact a few already established accommodation address services for details of what charges and special facilities they operate. Then take the best from each.
