Everyone is a photographer these days thanks to the fancy cameras in our smartphones. It can be a tough living being a professional photographer; there is a lot of competition.

But remember, we're just trying to make $1 a day. So you're not going to pitch your work to magazines or betrothed couples, they're going to hire pros.

But all of you amateur shutterbugs can try your hand at making a little money by selling your photographs on Shutterstock.

The site pays 25 cents every time one of your images is downloaded, with a tiered set of raises to 33 cents, 36 cents and 38 cents per download as you reach the $500, $3,000 and $ 10,000-lifetime earnings milestones.

The site pays via PayPal. Some of my clients use images from Shutterstock on their sites.

While some clients on the site might be looking for moody, arty shots, most of them are looking for stock photos so take and upload lots of mundane stuff like cups of coffee, a hand holding a smartphone, and a laptop with a pair of glasses on the keyboard!
