    Hello everyone! I am an absolute beginner here but i want to ask you big brains a question! My instagram profile is about only my photos, i take photos in a professional way and i post them. I managed to grow my account to 10,4k followers rapidly growing and a rate of 1300 likes per photo and more than 20 comments. The question is : how can i monetize this thing? I thought about shootout, maybe two or three per weeks.. Any suggestions?

    Or you could create a blog about photography and start posting reviews on photo gear.

    you could try selling on stock websites, photodune , istockphoto or through your own website. Share some for free on pixabay and stocknap to build traffic to your own website and offer the better ones individually priced or provide a membership option

    though I believe adsense should get better in near future after getting rid of all the scam sites
