    Default Photo Sharing

    Hi Everyone! I'm new to this forum, so I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Sarah and I just got into photography about a year ago. I photograph mostly nature and wildlife, but I also do a lot of black & white. I recently started sharing my work online, but a lot of the websites weren't very legitimate. Does anyone know of any good websites to share your photos and get paid for it? I've come across a few, but they were too complicated. There was only website that accepted my photos and shared them. It's called Printloft.us. I highly suggest my fellow photographers check it out if you're looking to share your photos and get paid for it. I upload all my photos and they pay me $40 for each print they sell. The money gets deposited right into my paypal account. Does anyone know of any other site like this? Thanks!

    Thank you so much! I've been looking at a few different ones and trying to promote my friends website at the same time, but people keep reporting me for SPAM. I guess I'm just kind of confused as to what you can and cannot do in the forums.

    Hi, Sarah. I'm glad belliveau replied and then you replied to him or I would have likely deleted your post as SPAM as your intro paragraph goes into some detail about a business site and so it looks kind of "spammy".

    There's quite a few stock photography sites that come to mind such as iStockphoto, Getty Images, and Shutterstock but I don't really have any experience with any of them so I'm not sure I'm much help.

    Hi Photosgalore22 and welcome to the forum,

    I will assume that you are not a spammer, so here's a tip. Don't promote anything when you join a community and you will be fine.
    If your main goal is promotion then start your own community.
    The last thing any community needs is more self-promotion or promotion in general.
    This type of promotion will hurt your friend by the way and get you quickly banned from forums.
    Hope that helps and hope to see some of your pics.

    Thanks so much for the information! Now I know what to do and what not to do! I will save the promoting for someone else! I really appreciate your help and feedback! Hopefully we'll chat again in the future. See you in the forums!

    Thanks for giving me a chance to explain myself! There will be no business promotion from me! Thanks for the stock photography suggestions as well. I'll check them out!
