Coming to you from Evan Ranft, this awesome video tutorial will show you 33 different ways you can get paid for working with your camera. One important thing to remember if you are doing something like selling prints is the effectiveness of working within your local area. I have written about this before, but the essential idea is that if you are trying to sell something like a print of the Grand Canyon, you have to compete with thousands of other images of the same subject. On the other hand, if you work with local subjects, not only will you have less competition, you will have the kind of specific knowledge that can help you create images that an outsider might never see. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Ranft.
