  1. Where can I take pictures?
    You can take pictures where there is no reasonable expectation of privacy. That is usually outdoors on public property.

    If you ask for and receive permission, you can take pictures on private property or indoors, as well.

    Be respectful, diplomatic and polite at all times!

    If someone asks you not to take their picture, or a picture of their child, respect their request with a smile and move on. You'll have plenty of other great opportunities.

  2. When is the best time to take pictures?
    Whether you take a few pix while walking to work, on your lunch break, on the weekends, just do what works best for your schedule.

    The important thing is to carry your camera wherever you go. You never know when a photo opportunity will pop up—you want to be ready!

    Be consistent, be persistent. The more experience you gain, the more likely it is you'll regularly produce photographs people will want to buy.

  3. How do my customers find their pix?
    • They can search pixHere.com using your Photographer ID.
    • Or you can give them a keyword to search on.

  4. How much can I sell my pictures for?
    You can set the price of each of your pictures to anything from $0 (free!) to $50.00

  5. How and when do I get paid?
    When someone buys the pix you've uploaded to pixHere.com, your PayPal account will be credited with your share (80%) of the proceeds. pixHere sends out these payments on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month depending on when the sale occurred.

  6. Is it really free to get started?
    • There is no fee to create your account.

    • With digital photography, there are no film costs.

    • Do you walk to work? Walk outside for exercise? Ever go anywhere outdoors? —then there is no cost in getting there.

    • You can take pictures with your own camera, even if it's just the one in your phone.
      (After you sell some pictures, you can upgrade to nicer equipment!)

    • After you create your Freelance Photographer account with us, you'll have access to a free template that lets you print basic paper business cards on your home printer.

    We've found that there is a significant social reward component to pixHere that is measured by more than just earnings. It's fun! You meet new people! You get outside (and outside yourself).

    Freelance photographers at pixHere capture great, candid images that wouldn't otherwise exist. Many pixHere Freelance Photographers feel they are paying it forward when they introduce a new customer to pixHere. The gratitude of a subject—seeing that special, candid moment captured for generations to enjoy—builds a special bond between the customer and the photographer and often leads to more business.

    The most successful pixHere Freelance Photographers have nice SLR cameras, know their way around the equipment, and have a real interest in photography. They carry professionally printed business cards with the pixHere logo and their photographer account name. They have skills and they love people!

    The more experience you have, coupled with some decent equipment, the more likely it is that you'll produce daily photographs people will want to buy.
