TRL Helpdesk - photo hosting & selling

3 posts in this topic

Due to living in a fairly popular tourist location, I was thinking of trying to utilise my slowly developing photography skills to try to sell photos of some of the more popular local landmarks. This would be as a complete sideline to my day job; I'm not thinking of moving into professional photography as a living! My thoughts are that I might start out by displaying a few sample shots at my in-laws (who have a small caravan site) in order to gauge whether or not there might be any interest.

 

I know that there are a few photographers on here that earn at least part of their living from their work, so to any of you, does this seem like a sensible idea or wishful thinking? If it is reasonable, would you suggest I'd be best trying to sell prints, or by setting up a site on somewhere such as smugmug or zenfolio to direct people to?

If you're wanting to "prey on" (for want of a better phrase0 tourists then you need to have them printed and get a local shop to sell them.

Znfolio is superb value for money but not for what you;re looking for in my opinion
