So, you want to become a photographer, or rather, you’d like to begin to build passive income from photography. Great! Photography is one of my Top 5 picks of the best residual income businesses, and it’s a great way to build passive income.
With that stated, however, it will take some time to build an income if you are solely working online and submitting photos for royalty income. So, patience is definitely needed if you’re going to pursue this avenue. There are many online sites that do accept photos from people, and they will be paid residual royalty income – whether they are a beginner or a professional. We will get to those shortly.

You could also become a pet photographer if you especially like to work with animals, and of course, you can always work with babies! And, who doesn’t like to work with babies!
