I absolutely love Payhip, it's such a user-friendly platform that literally anyone can use. Having launched my first ever eBook with Payhip, everything has gone by a breeze, I couldn't be happier with how easy it is.

We needed a company that handled VAT of the eBooks we sell. After a little research, we found Payhip to be the best fit. We're now using Payhip. We love the way they handle VAT and are easy to work with!

What are nature photos?

Nature photos are, as you'd expect, photos of nature. They might be close-ups of birds, flowers, butterflies, or even details on trees, or pictures of wildlife. Landscape photos are a subset of nature photos, taking in a broader scene. Most nature photos are taken outdoors, though this isn't an absolute requirement.

How can I sell nature photos?

It's easy to sell nature photos through Payhip. You just need to create a free Payhip account, add a new product, upload your digital photos (probably as a collection), and then set a price. Another option is to sell your nature photos as physical prints - or you could get them printed onto items such as greetings cards.

Is landscape photography profitable?

Landscape photography can be profitable, though you're likely to have some large startup expenses in terms of your camera and equipment. As with any business, you'll need to think about how you plan to make money - whether you're going to sell your photos directly to customers, to a stock library, or by licensing them for use by a brand or publication.

Where can I sell my nature photos?

There are lots of different places where you can sell your nature photos, including stock photography libraries. If you want to keep the maximum profits from your photography, however, you'll want to sell directly to customers where possible. You could do that through a free Payhip store or through your website, using Payhip's checkout system.

What is the best way to sell nature photographs?

The best way to sell nature photographs online is by selling them on your own website as digital downloads. You can also sell them as stock images platforms such as like Shutterstock, 123RF, Dreamstime, and iStockPhoto.

Is there a storage limit?

No, we have no storage or bandwidth limits. We only have a 5GB per file limit. If you really need more than 5GB per file, then get in touch.

Do you offer charity discounts

For sure, we love to support great causes of all kinds so please get in touch with us.

Can I make money selling pictures of nature?

Yes, you can make money selling pictures of nature. You'll likely make the most money selling prints (or potentially other items based on your photos), though another option is to sell digital copies. You might also sell your nature photos to stock photography companies, but it can be tough to make a living that way. Some magazines and periodicals buy nature photos, too.

How do I sell my nature photo prints?

It's easy to sell prints of your nature photos through Payhip, which allows you to sell physical products. If you offer multiple sizes of prints, you can easily set variations of your product so that the customer can choose the size they want. You could also do this for other options like buying a color vs black and white print. Payhip also lets you track product inventory, so you don't end up accidentally selling prints that you've run out of.

How do I start a nature photography business?

Starting a nature photography business is much like starting any other business. You'll want a clear plan, including ideas on how to fund your business in the early stages - perhaps through savings or a loan. You'll need to work out how to best profit from your nature photography: depending on your style as a photographer, that might be through prints, through print-on-demand products, or through fulfilling commissions for publications.
