If you know you can sell photography prints online, you are already way ahead of the market. Most photographers stay at hobby level, or dabble in stock photos or weddings, very few realise you can sell your prints online as a regular income stream. The question is how to sell photography prints online? Any why should you?
Well, both the how and the why are easy to answer. Let’s start with the why. Photography is generally a side-gig. It can be difficult to maintain revenue from it, especially, (in regard to the pandemic) when the world shuts shop. No weddings, no models, and sometimes, no outdoors. Selling your photography prints online can provide you with a recurring and even stable source of income.
