As you know by now, my hard disk is “submerged” with photos that I took during my photographic outings and also from my trips to one of the best place to be on the planet, Scotland.
So I’m always on the look for new avenues to display my photos.
This line of thoughts recently led me to a book written by well known artist and photographer Martin Hurley titled “A Mini-Guide To Using Ebay & CafePress To Sell Your Photography“.
In the introduction, Martin declares that the Ebay CafePress idea did not originate from him, but he adapted same with his own twist , and added screen grabs in the book to illustrate the process.
“I have also used the idea with success. It does work. You don’t need to limit yourself to just framed photos though. You can list anything pretty much on Ebay with your photography on it.”
I purchased the book and read through the clearly written 26 pages in less time than it takes to cook my favorite dessert commonly called “far breton” here in the French-speaking province of Quebec . The recipe originates from Brittany and is called : “farz fourn”. But I disgress here…let’s get back to photography. 😉
Wow…I am truly impressed by this reading. It cannot be more easier than this to set-up and run a photography business to sell photos online! This is exciting.
In a nut-shell, here’s what it’s all about => Martin delivers a “hands-free” system that we can use to sell our photography products on Ebay, and CafePress will print, frame and ship the photo product, but our customer will actually receive it FROM us!
How can this be?
Well, I would explain here, but you’ll understand better by reading the Ebay & CafePress Guide.
Can you guess what I am going to do after I publish this post?
That’s right…I am going to apply this technique to a selection of my photography portfolios.
If you want to start right away selling photos online, give this a try right away and let me know if my recommendation helped.
PS: I’m on Martin Hurley’s mailing listing for a while now and can assure you that “he walks the talk“.
PS2: Do not hesitate to leave a comment below if you are already using this system. It will give all readers even more insight about the Ebay & CafePress product review. Thanks !
