Sorry for the inactivity lately – just got back from an awesome 6 week trip across New Zealand.
During that time it got me thinking. Now, I haven't done much photography lately and NZ gave me the opportunity to work on my landscape photography which I haven't done much of. Got a few I'm happy with, a few 'nearly good', and a bunch of crap. So I don't have the collection of stunners that others made, but overall I'm more or less happy and I can take it as a big learning experience too.
When I was over there I'd flick through the poster displays you'd find in all the tourist shops...generally, the same couple of guys would have a little stand with a big flip book of a dozen or so posters that you can buy for a reasonably cheap price, and maybe a stand of postcards or such too.
Now, some of these guys are good, but one or two of them had decidedly uninspiring images – photos which I probably wouldn't even bother editing let alone printing or selling.
So that got me wondering does anybody on here make any money from their photography, and how did you go about this? I'd love to be able to sell some work...not looking at getting into full time work or anything, but I'd be happy making a few hundred dollars from selling some prints every now and then.
