How to make money from selling your sports photos. Racing Snakes now offers the opportunity for anyone with good quality photography of adventure and endurance sports the chance to sell them on the racing snakes photo store. Images should be of very good quality and have a maximum long edge of 5000 pixels (this can be set in lightroom and most photo editing software). To start selling your sports photo's you will first need a membership (currently this is FREE but hurry as this might change without warning).
You can sign up for a membership here, select the photographers membership and this will allow you to upload photos as a contributor to the racing snakes photo sales. For each photo sold racing snakes pays you 80% commission (minus paypal fees) making you money from selling your sports photography. This is one, if not the best rate of commission paid as for a photography sales website.
Photograph sells for £6
80% of £4.80 to photographer.
The process is simple, once you have signed up for a photographers membership you can start selling. Not only do you get a membership account to start selling photos but you also get to tell people about yourself including adding an avatar, a link to your website and an area to edit your bio, which gives potential customers more faith in your work.
