The internet is pretty cool in that anyone can publish anything (like myself on this blog), and amateurs can become professionals pretty quickly. I get most of my pictures from 123rf.com. When I became a free member, I had the option of contributing some of my own photos as “stock photos” and allow other people to purchase them. What a great opportunity for a newbie photographer to make some money. I really love this site because I can get free photos from there too. I should short Getty Images stock. This site will put them out of business for sure.
