Ok, so we have the camera and some of us may or may not have some expensive equipment, but what is the quickest way to earn money from your camera in order to fund your hobby.

probably porn...

Depends on what you are shooting and how good you are - these microstock agencies earn me enough money to buy some new stuff from time to time:

Soup is right. I have a friend who shoots for adult websites and he makes around 4 to 7 grand a month usually depending on how busy he wants to be. The business will never die down, its a billion dollar industry.

Yes, it's quite lucrative. To be honest, I have done it before to pay bills. It's a bit awkward at first though... LOL. Getting paid (at least 10 years ago) is a bit harder than doing the shoots. There are some shady characters at the other end of some of these sits.

But, it's not for everyone and I don't think that's where Axleuk was wanting to go with this thread.

he asked what the fastest way to make money would be. assuming he's aiming for more the 20cents a day for pay - i would rule out microstock for all but about 1% of the population. sexual-journalism seemed like a reasonable response. as far as quality of work goes, i doubt there is an industry that has endless openings for even the worst of photogs outside of porn. i didn't intend to stear the thread awry. merely mentioned the first thing that came to mind.

Go to the local lookout point and catch cheaters in the act.
1. no post processing required
2. no printing required.
3. just show the picture to them on the camera
4. "X" amount of $'s to delete.
5. Take money, say thank you, and run like ////////////.

Just joking!
