    Like the others have said....good luck. I've sold one pic thru a photo agency but it was a fluke. I had some pics published in a coffee table book and was contacted by the photo agency asking me if I wanted to sell one of the pics. I think I got $150 for it.

    You will also need to have full model releases on any people that are reconizable in your pics.

    you have to shoot for stock, you really can't just shoot and expect those images to also work. You can mak money, but you have to know a lot about it. I've had professors that have made 10-20k on certain images alone, but they also staged the photos and found areas that were weak in the catalogs already.

    i was thinking of sites like www.shutterstock.com

    but they have like a million pictures for people to choose from and it hardly seems worth it. but if i could make a little bit of money to buy new stuff that would be nice seeing as im not a pro photography and am in college
