A General Overview of ‘Get Paid Taking Pictures’

Michael Davis (ex WalMart employee) was lucky to stumble upon the methods used to sell photos online. He packaged up his new found knowledge and created this very simple downloadable product called ‘Get Paid Taking Pictures’.

Clickbank awarded ‘Get Paid Taking Pictures’ the Best Work From Home Opportunity for 2015.  The claim is that you can earn $3,647 in one week just by uploading photos.

How It Works.

Internet marketing has created a huge demand for fresh images. Companies and individuals are willing to pay for photos to illustrate their online promotions and their appetite for new photo content is voracious.

Michael says they want pictures of everyday people doing everyday stuff, like shopping and eating fast food. Simple photos of dogs and the sky and the grandparents taken on your smartphone or your little point and shoot camera.

‘Get Paid Taking Pictures’  will apparently give you the 2 Essential Components to be successful, preparation and opportunity.

3 simple steps. Snap a pic, upload it, get paid. get paid taking pictures a scam?

Where is the value in ‘Get Paid Taking Pictures’?

The main value here is that you are introduced to a new idea. Sadly, that is where the value ends.

Why? Because everything in the manual is free information that you can find for yourself with a two second google search. For example “How to take better photo with a Smartphone” or “Sites who buy images.” or “Phone Apps to upload pictures”.

Some people will pay for the compilation of links, because it might save them a bit of time. Just know that even the bonuses are freely available, you simply need to google the titles.

What are the risks with ‘Get Paid Taking Pictures’?what kind of camera will pay

There is no massive cash risk because the product is very low value to start with. (see cost list below!) And you won’t risk wasting time because it is a quick read. How can you lose on a 60 day 100% money back guarantee?

The real risk with this program is that you could mistakenly believe…

  • It is super easy to sell your pics. No! The reality is you still need to create accounts with the buyers and meet their standards.
  • Any photos you upload will be purchased. No! They only buy the images that meet their criteria.
  • No skills are required. No! Digital photography is a very competitive marketplace. Have you noticed, EVERYONE is a photographer. Your technical ability with color and definition will affect your earning power.
  • No fancy equipment is needed. No! Your photos must meet the buyers requirements for mega pixels and quality resolution. You will need to get the phone apps too.
  • Anyone can sell pictures. No! Only photographers with a knowledge of artistic composition, commercial concepts, creativity and marketability will produce the goods.
  • Anyone can fluke an amazing picture to sell. Yes! This is true, but lucky coincidences will never be your bread and butter. Practice capturing the essence of a subject to become a photographer in demand.

Troubleshooting at ‘Get Paid Taking Pictures’

‘Get Paid Taking Pictures’ has a Facebook page with 20,000 likes but a small community. You could ask for help there because there doesn’t seem to be a help desk.

Cost of ‘Get Paid Taking Pictures’ USDdiscount on free

This is the part I love to hate. Any product that drops the price each time you go to leave the page is not really offering much value to start with. At first you’ll be asked to pay $69, then $37, then $27 and maybe even $19. Keep playing this game until you find the price you like. Note that they will be discounted further still to as low as $4.95

You will be offered more upsells inside the members area and a free automatic press button website with mind blowing powers to generate untold casherooney! Ugh!

Is ‘Get Paid Taking Pictures’ suitable for you?

Do you want sell your photos? Are they good quality? Can you google? Do you get what I’m saying?

If you answered ‘YES’ to any of these questions then save your money and do it for free.

I got a free start in online marketing and created a business around the things I love, including photography.

    Hello Janelle,

    I came to your site to find ways to make money with my photo equipment. I thought maybe get paid taking pictures would be a way but you have shown me that I would be wise to stay away.
    I am not a professional by any means, I have good equipment and all but I do not have the training. I do like your sneaky tips and will be putting those to use to try and make some cash.
    Thanks for the review and saving me the time of finding out I would be wasting my time with them.

    Thank you for an awesome review. My husband has been talking about “getting paid” for taking pictures. We are not professionals but thought why not make some extra cash while doing something that we enjoy like taking pictures? I am sure a lot of others feel the same way and that’s how they fall for scams such as “Get Paid Taking Pictures”. Shame on them for selling free products!

    Thank you for taking time to post a valuable review, I am sure you have and will save a lot of people from losing their hard earned cash.

    wow, yeah that kinda looks like a scam. Everyone wants to be big in the industry, why would you and I have it easy just by signing up for a low cost? Bs
    You have to actually build your fanbase, or customer base for photos or anything in that matter to really make money, in my opinion. Thanks for letting me know about these guys though, im going to stay away.

    Hey Great Post!

    Very informative and did not realize that people were into this. I know it’s got to be tough with all the photos and images that are accessible just through keyword searches.

    How does one post pictures online and receive payment if the image is found in google images and can be simply copied?

    Is there a way to prevent that type of method?

    Great Post thought, another great way to put your hobbies or talents to work

      Hi Chris. It is a competitive field, but if you have the talent, why not give it a go. As I mentioned, there are a few ways to make money with your photos.

      Media is a hungry beast, and you can target your image subjects to a particular field. A good example is the ‘make money online’ market. These marketers are always searching and buying fresh images to describe their niche. Lets face it, there are a lot of cheesy, laptop- on- the- beach styles for sale.

      You will have noticed if you’ve tried to copy an image online that they almost always have a watermark stamped on them. Which means it has a licence or a price attached….it is not free.This is a copyright method that many photographers use. You can do it with your own images if you intend to publish on the net.

      Here is a another free, step by step training to watermark your images.

      Go really well from Janelle

    Hi Janelle,

    Thanks for the great investigation, as I have heard about “Get Paid Taking Pictures”, it’s been in the back of my mind – I’m not a great photographer but have a few good photos that I was thinking of selling. Sounds like this system is definitely No, and it really is a shame. I’ll stay away. And thanks for the sneaky tips as well!

      I guess the one good thing about ‘get paid taking pictures’ is it will save you time googling the same info. But I’m noticing that this program hasn’t been updated for a while now. Things change quickly on the internet. Instagram is improving rapidly at the moment and showing earning potential for a photographer with decent skills.
