Hi Gordon. Great question. Photography is a great hobby, one that can also provide some financial benefits. i have a few friends that are very avid photographers on the side that make a decent amount of spending cash on the side. They started off with posting their best pictures on social media, usually through an account dedicated just for their pictures, and using hashtags to increase exposure to the account. Usually, there next step was to continue to grow their portfolio, which occurred with photo shoots of nature, weddings, etc. After their work received a decent amount of exposure, they would usually ask their friends to spread the word of their services, and also post on forums or websites listing their prices. You may have to initially start with getting paid next to nothing when building your reputation and portfolio.
