Making money from your photography


The Abbey Studios Photography Centre & School of Photography for Workshops, Courses and Individual Tuition.

Making Money from your Photography - Images that sell!

Most of us from time to time have taken a great photograph but struggle to find a market for it - during this one day seminar Graham will share with you his 37 plus years experience as a full-time professional photographer and many of the ideas he has successfully employed to provide a good income from his photography. There have been times when it's been hard, but it's in those times that you become most creative and imaginative in ways of selling your images. In most years Graham invoices 6 figure sum and it's not just profitable but also very enjoyable too!

His work has taken him across the UK and abroad and the studio has been commissioned a number of times to cover Royal events in the area.

Graham has just had a book published on the National Arboretum at Westonbirt, near Tetbury with the foreword written by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall. See www.acerpress.co.uk for details. In addition his images have been used for Greetings Cards, Calendars, in Books and Magazines across the globe.

You will leave with a host of ideas that will help you generate enough income not just to support your 'hobby', but also to make a decent income from it. Delivered in a relaxed, informative way, with plenty of opportunity to interact and question Graham, you will also take away useful contacts for essential suppliers.

Stock imaging and how to sell through Alamy Photo Library – maximise your sales.

Exciting news, for some it has been increasingly difficult to make an impact and reasonable income from stock images, this has become more difficult by the increasing number of digital photographs being made available in the market place, but this is about to change and you can be part of that change!

I have recently discovered someone who has inspired me – he is probably the top contributor and seller in the UK with Alamy – one of the UK’s largest picture agencies.

Keith is a successful freelance news, editorial, arts and features photographer based in Aberystwyth on the west Wales coast.

In a career spanning nearly 35 years he has covered a vast range of stories and events for major national newspapers and magazine in the UK and abroad and has been commissioned by major organisations such as the BBC, the National Trust, the National Lottery, and the Welsh Government. His photographs have been published in hundreds of books and magazines all over the world

As an additional way of earning a living from his work he contributes to a small number of photo agencies and picture agencies in the UK. Since joining Alamy in 2006 he has grossed over $270,000 in image sales, that’s an average in excess of $30,000 a year – enough to buy his house, with the vast majority of those photos made within walking distance of his home in the centre of Aberystwyth!! Having not been abroad since 1987 he makes a virtue of working in a very small local area, and finds new ways of looking and seeing, and finding the commercial potential of everyday situations and activities, and he sells at least one image a day!

I have invited him to lead a 1 day seminar/workshop where he will show examples of his work, talk about what makes a saleable image, how best to get them on Alamy’s site and how to keyword those images. There will be an opportunity for you to take images and have them assessed to see if they fit the ideal for Alamy.

The seminar will be held at the Stratton House Hotel in Cirencester on aSaturday this coming Spring - watch this page for dates.

Space will be limited so to take full advantage of this seminar and open up the opportunity for you to begin selling more images book your space now.

The seminar fee is £150.00 and will include tea/coffee and a light lunch.
