Photography is an expensive hobby. Just because you don’t have to buy film or pay for prints anymore, doesn’t mean it’s going to cost you nothing. Just buying a decent DSLR camera and zoom lens will already set you back more than R20000. And then you’ll want a good bag, a tripod, a larger memory card, Adobe Lightroom for processing…and before you know it you’ve maxed your credit card limit again!
So why not let photography pay for photography? There are many ways that you can earn a little extra cash with your photographs (and videos), providing that they are really good, of course. You don’t have to be a full time professional photographer; you simply have to send the right photo to the right ‘buyer’.
