If you’re reading this it’s probably a safe assumption you’re always looking for ways to make more money to travel with … and ideally, to make money while you’re traveling, amirite?
Since you are almost certainly taking many many photos anyways, that’s a fairly obvious avenue to explore. You might think that becoming a professional photographer requires training, or talent, or anything much…
… well no. No, it really doesn’t.
And to prove that assumption beyond any possible doubt, check out this:
1. Being there
2. an iPhone
3. Applying to Shutterstock
4. No … no, there’s only 3.
No training, no investment aside from traveling there with your phone … can’t beat that as a way to start becoming a travel photography professional, can you?
Mind you, we’re not professionals yet, as no one has purchased that photo since it went live yesterday … but feel free to be the first!
For future trips, we’re going to make a plan of always taking two shots at particularly scenic locations, and pick one to upload to Shutterstock, and one to submit to OUR PLACE: The World Heritage Collection. Doing well by doing good, that’s the ticket!
