The easiest approach is to take photos of people if you want to make money from photography. There may be photos of the family, wedding photographs, baby photographs or school photographs. In your chosen photography sector, you can need some preparation and trade organisations such as the Baby and Newborn Photography Association may assist with this.

Wedding photography is potentially very profitable, but it is unique from some other form of photography because you catch a day in the life of a person that will never be replicated, ideally. So there’s only one way to make things right. It takes time and effort to build up a respectable wedding photography company and will invariably mean giving up weekends and evenings, particularly during the summer months.

Taking photos for newspapers and magazines or selling ‘stock’ photographic pictures online are other ways to make money from photographs. It will be fun to take photos of landmarks and activities, unless you are really nice, it would be hard to make money off it.
