Work and make money as a Freelance Photographer

Dear Readers,

Hope everyone's busy with their work and career growth. 

In my previous posts, I have shared information on work from home jobs, online tutoring jobs, website testing jobs, online courses, etc. 

Today, I will share information about sites where you can earn money through freelance photography. You will need to click high quality photos and upload them to these sites. When a brand, design agency or just anyone who finds your work outstanding purchases a picture from your online portfolio. 


Below are a few good sites that pays you for every photo that gets sold on their sites.


Shutterstock - Shutterstock is a global marketplace for artists and creators to sell royalty-free images, footage, vectors and illustrations. Shutterstock is always looking for new content to add to their collection. Contributing images to Shutterstock is free and you will retain the copyright to your work.

Click here to join Shutterstock.




Alamy - Whether it’s your full-time job, a weekend hobby or you’re a student; you can join Alamy where you can sell your stock imagery to over 100,000 customers worldwide.

At Alamy, you can sell stock photos, footage, vectors, illustrations and reportage and archival imagery.  They also have a Live News Team, working directly with news outlets to sell news, sports and entertainment images taken in the last 24 hours.

Foap - At Foap, you just need to add any photos to your profile, caption and tag them and wait for someone to spot them and buy them from you. You get $5 for every photo that is sold. They also have specific missions by big brands. These brands will provide specific missions where the rewards range from $100 to $2500 if your photo gets selected. These Missions require unique and great photos in order for them to be picked as the winners.

  2. Thank you for these websites! I am a photographer as well but I usually just shoot for my own blog and never thought of selling my own photos. This would be a great way to get some extra income.
