Selling prints – You’re a creative person. You’re a photographer. Are you printing? Are you selling prints? If yes, good for you, you should be making money from your work. If no, why not?
It’s funny to me how so many photographers these days don’t think about selling prints. Again, why not. Some may think that people wouldn’t be interested in purchasing prints of their work. But you know what? You might be taking photographs that really resonate with some people. You never know.
Selling Prints – Have a Website
Here’s the thing, if you take your photography seriously you really should have a website. It’s a way to share your work with the world, literally.
It’s a way for you to share your photography in a way you want it to be seen. Not in a flow, in a feed that people are just scrolling through. Not with ads on either side of your photo competing for your photo’s attention. But show your photos with the white space and attention that they deserve.
Selling Prints – Your Side Hustle
These days, even if your main source of income might not be photography, almost everyone has, or is looking for a side hustle. Another source of income to add to the pie. If you’re a photographer, you already have a side hustle. You just need to start using it to bring in income. Why not?
You can put up a website. Once that’s in place, start adding your photos that you’d like to sell. It’s fun. It’s rewarding. Knowing that other people want to look at your photography in their home or office is a good feeling. It really is, man.
Not Sure Where To Start?
One of the things I do professionally is web design. I develop websites for big and small business; for mom and pop business; for artists that need a platform. I didn’t start this post with the idea of doing a sales pitch, but currently I’m running a sale. $799 for complete web development. If you know anything about web dev, this is just a fraction what this normally costs. Even better, if you’re a photographer, I want to help you even more. To get your work out there on your own platform. If you’re a photographer I’m offering the same package for $599. If you want to check out more of my work in this area, visit TedVieiraConsulting.com.
