My name is Karla. First, I need to say that….I’m not mainly a photographer….and I don’t have a typical photography business… per say. I also don’t consider myself an expert at selling anything online…but…

…I have been successfully selling my photos online for over 10 years now.


I fell backward into selling my photos online.

I work at a local tour business where I take pictures regularly, and as part of the process, I would email people the pictures I took of them after the outing. It turned out that sending and receiving pictures through email was a pain, and I didn’t want to post them publicly online in case people didn’t want that.

So I started putting them on my site where people could see them and download the ones they wanted via a password-protected link (this was totally a big deal back then lol). But then… people started asking to buy some of the other pictures they saw on my site….and all of a sudden I was selling photos online!

I want to help you save time and money.

Over the years since then, I have been experimenting with the different techniques and trying the new options available for selling photos online.  I want to share my successes and failures (mostly successes!) with you. I talk about my own experiences with what worked for me and what didn’t. My hope is that you might learn something from my experiments that will save you time and money in your efforts to create your own successful online photography business.

It’s not a get-rich-quick scheme for sure!

I think that any type of photographer can benefit from the additional income stream that comes from selling their photography online. There are so many different ways of selling photography online today, and not every method will work for everyone. But you can find options that suit your business and your customers. If your goal is to earn an income online from your photography, try to keep in mind that earning any kind of income online takes a great deal of hard work and patience, but I’m proof that it can be done.
