    There are plenty of stock photography website that accept the photographers work. However work needs to be in higher resolution and high quality. So the work goes through the process and then get listed.

    No special lens or the camera. But it depends on the better resolution and quality of the phone.

    Here are some of the sites that allow you such selling of photos.

    1. Foap : It sells your photo for 5$ per sale and you get paid via paypal. It's easy and also accepts smartphone photos. But it's hard to find the sales

    2. Shutterstock: This website is very strict and takes time for photos to be approved. Your photos get sold based on the community set price for the photos.

    3. Envato Photodune; Another network to sell the photos. But they have very hard process to pass through. So once get listed, your photos may sell in good numbers.

    4. Corbis: This can be a good place to sell your astro photography, landscape and nature images. Another very competitive place to sell. But the price for which the photo gets sold is very high. Premier network so expect to be seen by national geographic and other similar sites.

    5. Getty Images: They also have rates per photo to be equal to that of shutterstock. So you can find some good earning just by selling the images here.

    These are some of the places where you can sell the images online. I'd say you can find as many as you can and then decide on which site you want to sell your images. If one image gets rejected on one site then you can go ahead and sell the image on another site.

    Hi Raja,
    Apart from above mentioned options for photo selling, you can upload photographs here at ISC.
    You just need to select proper link to upload your photo in appropriate category. For example, you have a photo of school located in Mumbai. Then you need to search and open that school page from School option in drop down menu of Education at the top.
    Once you have opened that page, you can find the link to upload the photos of that school.
    To earn more, you have to give it a proper title and good description.

    Please note that the photos must not be copied and should be of appropriate size to get accepted at ISC.
    You can go through the photos already submitted and approved to get an idea about the same.
