How to sell my photos

I took a lot of photos, some of which people may be interested in. I have no idea on how to let people know my photos. Is there a shop in Switzerland which can published some selected photos of mine?

Why not get yourself a website and publish them there?

Re: How to sell my photos

You can also sell them as stock photos. Either on your own website or to another site selling them.

Re: How to sell my photos

When I first started doing stock photos, the minimum submission was about 200 great quality pictures with regular "top up's".

Dunno however what the rules are today. It doesn't pay that much, as you have to have lots of really good stuff for people to see. The trick is to take "mundane" stuff that people could use to illustrate an article etc.

Good sellers believe it or not are subjects like street scenes, people in cafe's, restaurants, park views etc.

You could try taking a look at iStockphoto to see what sells and what doesn't.

HTH

You could also try a site like www.deviantart.com and list your photos as stock pics.

Re: How to sell my photos

A mate of mine was contacted by an ad agency to use one of his photos from Flickr. It's now part of a fairly widespread ad campaign. Pretty cool really. So yeah just stick em on Flickr, tag them with what they are, and if they're any good then the ad campaign trawlers will find them and come to you for free.
