FIVE DOLLAR PICTURES. Photographers Struggle to Sell Images for Five Dollars – Dean: “With photographers already battling against lower fees and increased competition, the last thing they need is another platform offering photography services at cutthroat prices. And yet, Fiverr, a service on which users pitch a range of different jobs for a flat five dollar fee, does now include a number of photographers. Photography isn’t listed. But search for “photography” on the site and you’ll find around 537 people willing to do something image-related for just five bucks.

TAKEAWAY: Even more reason to arrange your business model around a photo specialization rather than be a generalist and compete with the “crowd”.
