More Reasons to be a Camera Bug

Monday, November 9, 2009

Were you bit by the bug?

I love taking pictures. It is a way to extend that wonderful moment. If you are like me and have a family, a job, and then an addiction to writing, blogging and photographing, you know how it feels to get bit. The camera bug bit me and it bit good!

Sell your photos over and over.

I love looking at your pictures too, so why wouldn't someone else enjoy them just as much? I opened my favorite magazine (Woman's World, Nov. 16, 2009 issue) the other day and found some suggestions for earning money from home. Listed there were three sites which you sell your photos at. They don't place limits on how many you sell and you can sell them over and over. This sounds too good to be true, but I'm checking it out. One more excuse to never leave home without the camera.

iStockPhoto.com
ShutterStock.com
BigStockPhoto.com

Win a professional camera.

A week ago I also happened upon another site where they run continual contests and some lucky amateur photographer wins a professional camera monthly. Professional photographers can display their albums there. This site is called SOAphoto.com. Click on the link with the contest. There are some breathtaking photographs there and, of course, some of mine. I know it's real because Jeanne knows last months winner.

I just thought I would update you on the SOAphoto contest. The first time I tried to enter a picture and then another I received a pop up stating only one entry per day. Today I tried to enter my daily photo and received a pop up stating only 5 per month. If you enter, start with your best. I see that Google also placed some ads next to my post with contests. I am writing down the urls to check out in my "spare" time. :-)

Take care & God bless. Smile, you never know someone may be hiding with a camera.

Good information Judy, I have sort of thinking about this. Another one is Smug Mug, I know a person who sell his there.

I keep meaning to thank you for the heads up on the contest, I made a note to check it but I keep forgetting. I will look into it soon.

Thanks for the heads up!

I have heard of so many sites like the one you've listed here, Judy, and that's RedBubble..I've listed mine there for a while, but they didn't get anywhere..

I'll have to look into these sites, and thank you for the information!

Oops..the last link didn't work, Judy! (SOA...something!)

Judy, Tracey, and Icy, the last one is SOAphoto.com. I type that into my browser and it brings up different sites. Select the one that says monthly photo contests.

Thanks for the visits. Take care & God bless.
