How to Turn Any Hobby Into a Saleable Photograph
By Lori Allen
During his time off from grad school, Danny Warren takes trips with his wife and friends to hike, camp, and climb in the woods and mountains of the Pacific Northwest. It's one of his favorite things to do.
Plus, it pays for his camera gear.
While he's hiking and camping, Danny takes photos along the way and sells them on the stock photo website By doing this, he makes a nice side income... and helps fund his next adventure.
Like Danny, indulging in your favorite hobbies can really pay off - literally.
Here's a tip for getting started:
Don't just photograph your hobby. Photograph everything surrounding it.
For example, if you love keeping a flower garden, don't just take pictures of flowers. Flowers are an overdone subject. And to take saleable flower photos, you've got to be one of the best.
But you can easily take marketable shots of flower gardening by focusing on everything AROUND the flowers, or by photographing them in a unique way.
