Well the same on as i sold befoer really, on another forum I was introduced to  Photalia, a website you can join and upload photos onto and people can browse through there and buy them, copyright free but as a person that only takes pics for fun its fantastic to know they are good enough to be bought and used by people.
When I can dig it out I will post a link to it  as its been about a year since I have been there
well I cant link to the site so this is my pic that has sold 3 time so far earning me £2.53



and here is a link to the site if anyone wants to join up and earn some money www.fotolia.co.uk

I looked at that site, do you ever get any spam or anything from it?  And have you tried the free version?

ok in this one you can see the glass



and this one show the wall in the bottom left corner and looks like a cage


with a bit of patients and luck you can get a good shot no matter where.

never had spam and You dont have to pay to join and upload pics for sale, I have never sent them a penny and they just tell me when one sells.
I have just looked back through my pics from last year at eagle park and there really are some good ones if I say myself. I love animal pics and I will have a go at posting a few more if you like.
Like this one

Pilsbury, well done on your sale. I have been selling through Fotolia for a few years now and doing pretty well from it as a side-earner. Today I was lucky to sell an extended licence earning me $51, it made my day

Pilsbury do you have an online portfolio for your photography?

I merely ask about the online portfolio because it can be a fantastic tool, especially for someone who wants to sell their work. I'm a freelance journalist, so I have a wordpress site that works as my online portfolio to promote all of my latest work. It helps when applying for work to be able to just give someone a link instead of an old fashioned hardcopy portfolio.

As for you though, using a personal website builder like 1&1, which I'm using for personal website that I'm building for my mother, may make more sense. It functions less like a blog and more like a website, with the ability to include order and payment sections. Although my mom isn't really focused on selling her work, I want it to be an option anyway...just in case I can eventually talk her into it.

Anyway, you should look into it. Your photography is beautiful and if it was easily accessible you could definitely get paid more for your work and be contacted for freelance gigs too. It's worth looking into.
