How to sell your photographs?

If you are an (amateur) photographer you could sell your photographs offline or on the Internet. Even if you have an iPhone with you, you earn some money by selling your pictures. 

Today I will talk about the possibilities to sell your photos. If you don't know how to take good photograph, then have a look at this website: Lifehacker - The Basics of Photography

  • iPhone pictures
If you have tones of photos on your iPhone you could sell them through Foap. Foap is an iPhone app, which is very easy to use. You upload your raw photo (no Instagram), tag them and wait for approval. You can earn $ 5 with every time your photo get sold. The best thing is that a photo can get sold over and over again. Download the app via this link. (iOS only) 

  • Digital camera
You can sell your photos through Photoboxgallery, 500px, iStockphoto, Shutterstock, ...
The most common websites are iStockphoto and Shutterstock. Different publishing companies use these websites to discover interesting photographs. Imagine that you see your photograph in a (famous) book. Wouldn't that be great?
On iStockphoto you earn a base royalty rating of 15% for each file download. But you have to apply to be a contributor. With Photoboxgallery you can choose your own price. The amount that you earn per print sale is dependant upon the mark-up that you put on your prints above the Photobox cost price.
