Yes I am ready to get into making a blog. OK… That is fine but why here and what happened to Citadel Arts?
I want to learn how to make a blog that people can use to learn how to make money in photography. I have a bunch of images that I have shot since I picked up my fist digital camera and even more that I shot with film. Some of them are just snap shots that only I and those in the pictures care to see others are shot with the world in mind.
What do I mean, shot with the world in mind?
I mean these shots are the kind of shots that say something to everyone. They can simply say beauty of nature or funny. Whatever it applies to people that I don’t even know and therefor marketable.
So the next question is what am I going to do with all my nice marketable images? Am I going to print them and try to sell them on the street corner? Am I going to have an art show and frame them up and put them on the walls of my favorite local coffee shop? How am I going to get them out there and possibly make some money with all the great shots that I have shot over the years?
My answer is stock photography and that is what this blog is all about. I want to help photographers make money with the images they have and inspire them to make more great images.
I will be the guinea pig. As I write this I don’t have any images with any stock site. My hope is to post the journey of putting my images out into the world of stock and what I need to do and learn along the way.
I hope to help at least a couple people out there make money with their great images. As soon as I can figure out how to I will call this blog “Stocking Up, A photographers journey into making money with his photography. ” I hope you will join me.
