Duncan Heather, MyPhotoSchool founder explains:  “Many of us take photographs.  We keep them on our computers, tinker with them in Photoshop and Lightroom, and share them on our social networks.  But after that they just sit there.  And few of us ever print them out.  What you may not realise, is that these photographs have a value.  And that value is on the increase.”

The How to Make Money from Photography four week online photography course starts on the first Saturday of every month costs £145 and is bookable now for June 1st intake.  All MyPhotoSchool courses provide a brand new online learning environment for photography enthusiasts and hobbiests where students view video lectures, attend a virtual classroom, have weekly critiqued assignments and get access to downloadable notes.

Heather continues.  “This latest online photography course is about making use of your images instead of having them just sit on your hard drive.  There’s a massive demand for unique, interesting and unusual images as a result of the digital revolution.   Images are needed these days not only for print publications, but the explosion in online publishing has seen the demand for great web images increase exponentially.”

Each week the students on the how to make money from photography course will cover a different topic related to making money from photography:

Week One:  The Stock Market: Selling your work through an image library
Week Two:  The Stock Market: Which Images sell?
Week Three:  Working to Commission: The freelance life
Week Four:  Making an exhibition of yourself: Print sales

David Taylor, course tutor explains:  “This online photography course is aimed at the hobbiest who wants to take their photography to the next level.  At MyPhotoSchool we believe that many amateurs can take as good a photograph as established professionals.  And why shouldn’t you make money out of your hobby?  In fact creating income from your images is not nearly as difficult as people think.  It just means a little bit more post processing work and the know-how to key-word your images at the right time.   You need to have 1000s of images online, learn how to predict trends, try to ride the waves of the news agenda, and anticipate what images are going to be required in the future.”

I am a journalist and photographer and currently work as the Deputy Editor of Amateur Photographer (AP) the oldest weekly photographic magazine in the world. Before that I served as the editor of Digital Camera, Britain's best-selling photography magazine, for five years. During my time as editor it became the UK's top selling photo monthly and won Print Publication of the Year at the 2013 British Media Awards. As well as being lucky enough to get paid to write about photography, I've been fortunate to interview some of the greatest photographers in the world, including Elliott Erwitt, Don McCullin, Martin Parr, Terry O'Neill and Steve McCurry. This has been a wonderful learning experience and very influential on my photography. Beyond writing, I am a professional portrait, travel and documentary photographer, and reached the finals of the 2016 Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition. I am a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society and hope to take my Associateship whenever I can find the time. In addition I write about well being/personal development and antiques collecting for a range of other titles, including BlueWings, the in-flight magazine of Finn Air.
