Your Digital Camera Job is Waiting!

Aug 29, 2008
There are several ways you can get paid to take pictures. No, you don't have to be a photography expert, nor do you have to be a technical genius. All you need is a digital camera, and the willingness to put your services up for sale! This can be a boon to stay at home moms looking for supplemental income.

Banks and lending institutions need people willing to run around and photograph property for them for various reasons. These digital camera jobs typically pay out starting between $10 and $25 per photo, and can go way up from there, depending on the location of the property, the number of photos needed and the urgency of the project.

Banks typically need photos of property that is being appraised due to financing, refinancing or foreclosure. The appraisal generally requires one or more photographs of the property in question. Possible assignments could include photographing houses, cars, RVs, boats or motorcycles. All you have to do is go to the specified location and take the photo.

You generally don't have to enter the property to take the required pictures, nor will you have to have any contact with owners or residents. Just point and shoot, check the picture to verify it is clear and meets customer specifications, and be on your way! You could possibly do several field assignments a day, and make some very decent money.

One good thing about this type of work is that you can work for several different institutions at once and try to plan your jobs to yield a profitable trip that makes the most of your gas costs. You can get certified as a notary as well, and make extra money on the road, getting paid to take pictures at one location and notarize a document a mile away!

Another plus is your ability to work more or less your own hours, and to pack your children along on the job. For a stay at home mom, either one of these conditions would make digital camera jobs attractive - combined, it's a win-win situation. You can even plan trips for when your baby is fussy - If you are going to be driving around town to get them to sleep, you may as well be getting paid for it!

If you want to get paid for taking pictures, you should shoot and print some examples first, so that your prospective customers can see that you know not to put your thumb over the lens! Then offer your wares on a trial basis, charging just enough on your first job to cover your operating costs. Once the banks know they can count on you, you will start being the first person they call.

Once you have some steady clients built up, you can expand into other digital camera jobs, such as stock photography or getting paid to take pictures for mystery shopping companies. There is really no limit to the possibilities when it comes to making money with your camera!
