Difficult is to sell photos - Dreamstime

That is difficult to sell photos, even for us amateur photographers this is a large window to the world to show our work, we complicated the concept of commercial photography.

To my capture a photo is stop time, translate into space a memory, an expression of beauty, which is why we are interested in much more the picture spontaneous, external image.

The amateur photographer is less commercial, but attempts to reach the level of a professional with experience in sales of their photos.

Is a great luck for the fan be accepted in photos of free law agencies, we have to learn to be a little more commercial....!

If correct, the difference is that the lives of professional and amateur photography not, but love, dedication, time spent, also feels the amateur.

I am a lover of photography, now I try to be an important cash income, but as I struggle to make the photo business.

Insist that those who are not professional royalty-free agencies are a true blessing.

Yes, it is hard for amateur photographers to sell photos. It is also hard to have them accepted. I started sending photos but it is hard to have them accepted. I started to see photos as the reviewers see them, and lately I have chosen not to send them at all, as I keep seeing defects on them. I only send the ones that come perfect when taken and I have no need to correct. And those are so few... Sometimes I throw all away from a series of 100 photos. At least it can make us better over time.
Anyway I haven't sold any photo yet, only illustrations.

I look beeing here as a hoobie, income is for buying better equpment, and I learn all the time from rejection and from files accepted and by looking and what others are doing.

Dear Luis Eduardo,

I recognise in your portfolio the amateur style. I like very much! It is not always useful to be sold but it is a great quality style. I hope you will not forsake your sile with the hope of increasing sales!

Same for me "Fotosenmeer" ... pro is a status of main income, not guarantee of quality :)

According to my opinion, the difference between a pro and an am is that a pro lives from selling his pictures. There is no direct relation concerning:

Time invested, IQ, gear, composition or the abillity to 'see' a picture. Though its more likely that a pro has those things in place.

happy shooting
