Flat Lay Instagram Photography
If you already have a good camera, and a good eye for colours and style, consider becoming a flat lay Instagram photographer! Offer your services to Instagram and Facebook businesses that need pretty photographs of their stock. Grab unique backdrops from your local flooring centre (see if you can buy cut-offs in many different colours and styles).
Photograph from overhead, light it perfectly and edit – and you have a beautiful Instagram Flat You that you could charge money for. Images could be styled and sold from $100 plus!
Even easier than that – find a Graphic Artist online and pay them an hourly rate for doing all the styling and photographs themselves. You then become the ‘Manager’ and can sell multiple photographs to multiple buyers – and even list those photographs for sale on various stock photograph sites. As you grow, you can employ more graphic artists or have them for more hours. It is a very scalable business!
What you Can Expect to Charge Your Clients
Up to $100.00 per image – that is fully styled and edited and the image emailed to your client.
Where to Advertise for Clients:
- Advertise via Instagram – showing clients your skills and tagging them in the images
- Advertise on Local Business Facebook Groups
- You could even run a course on how to do flatlay photography!
Plus you can also sell your images! I’ve seen them for sale on Etsy and for stock photography sites!
