    I'm just wondering, how effective a strategy is it to sell photographs? I mean, you can visit quite a few "photography" sites that look nice and everything, but how successful are they really? Does anyone have a site such as this that sells pictures, and if so, how successful is it?

    Are you trying to sell pictures online (e.g. JPG pictures) or something like 4"x6" pictures?

    Like most things, selling images takes time. Some people have been fairly successful selling stock photos at a website such as shutterstock.com; however, I've never personally tried out the service so I can't judge how difficult it would be.

    if your a professional photographer you can win, otherwise you need to invest a big amount of money.

    If you are not a pro photographer, the best thing you can do is go to a website that will sell your photos for you. For all of your pictures, you can have a link that will lead back to a website you built, that will sell all of your photos in one place.

    But, I would say that the success rate is pretty low. As long as you would not be depending on the site for money, there is no harm in pursuing such a thing.
