One of the easiest ways of making extra money is with a 35mm film or digital camera.
Whether it’s a Pet Photography Business, Glamour Portraits or the Unique Santa Photos discussed in this article; with a camera and the ability to use it you will always be able to manufacture for pennies a product that people really want sell it for dollars!
For example here are some simple easy items you can make that sell really fast especially around tourist attractions all year long and in malls during the Christmas holiday season.
1) Photo Key Chains
2) Photo Coffee Mugs
3) Photo charm bracelets
4) Photo greeting cards
5) Photo Christmas tree ornaments
I made and sold all of the above products throughout the late 80’s and early 90’s using a special Polaroid Magic Camera but now thanks to digital cameras it’s easier to earn instant profits with a camera than ever before!
With a little imagination, a flair for showmanship, and just a hint of salesmanship, the average man or woman, or even teenager, can easily make an extra $1000 a week with his camera.
I got my start as a pet photographer by approaching a pet shop in my local mall one Christmas season and offering to do “Santa Paws” pictures in the back of their store. We had a special Santa suit made up with big furry boots and gloves that looked just like animal paws and a big old St. Bernard’s hollowed head and a Santa hat to top it off.
We hired one of Santa’s elves to walk around the mall wearing a sandwich board advertising our Santa paws pet portraits. Someone notified the media and two newspapers and a local television station covered the story.
We sold almost $50,000 worth of the above items that December and after paying all my expenses, hired help and a piece of the action to the pet store owner I had a very merry Christmas because I made more that month than most people do in a year!
There are many more ways to make instant profits every day of the week with photography that can be fun, as well as financially rewarding for you. If you want to profit with your camera the most important thing is to just get started, regardless of how small you start, and begin cashing in as you continue to sharpen your picture taking abilities.
