Today digital photographers are needed all around the world, due to the diversity of our planet, so regardless of where you live there is money to be made through selling your digital photos online.
The main objective to sell photos online is to choose the correct subject matter, of which there are many. In general you will make money by photographing anything business related, of people in action, children, any technical gadget as well as exotic places and wildlife shoots. There are also subjects yet to be discovered, which are potential gold mines. Many stock or microstock agencies are looking for photos like this: medical stuff and equipment, antiques, rare artifacts, car parts, fashion, analogue and grunge, food and beverages, personal care and cosmetics, electronics and telecommunications, religious and spiritual images, holiday and seasonal themes, sports, people of many cultures and ethnic backgrounds.
The second objective after you chose the correct subject is exposure! Get those millions to see your pictures instead of just thousands or just your circle of friends. Exposure is crucial. Not only will having more people see your pictures help you make more money, but it's also good for branding.

If people begin to see your pictures in more than one place they will begin to see that you are a big name photographer. Suddenly, the demand for your pictures will go up and people will be willing to spend more to have your images. No matter what kind of photography you want to get into, if you don't have some samples of your work online, you will be shutting out what could be a huge portion of your income.

So how do I get those pictures online?
Well you have two options:
1. Get your own website
2. Use existing websites for free

First option is considered if you are familiar with HTML or internet technologies. But second is the easiest one and helps you to put photos where people are looking for pictures really. The question now: where is that? Of course, microstock agencies. Every month there are MILLIONS of people who visit micro stock photography sites with money in hand, ready to buy photos. You can upload your pictures to these sites and people can buy downloads of them. So after you put your pictures on there they can sell over and over again while you do nothing. It's really quite simple and there are some making 6 digit figures with micro stock right now. Once you build up a nice size portfolio on the sites below it will not be impossible to be making at least an extra $1,000 a month, and the more you work at it you can make that $1,000 per week.
