Get started - try it now!

Not now? Sign up for our newsletter - we inform you of new briefings!



We find clients with a constant need for quality photos - you pick what you want to work on. Each photo sold earns you €20. Start in seconds: Go to the list of current briefings, choose a job that you want to photoshoot , make the photo and upload it. We present it to the client and if he buys your photo you receive your cash! Payments are made via Paypal.

Most of the photo jobs can be done in 15 minutes. Earning € 20 in 15 minutes equals an hourly pay of 80!!! Now, of course you won't sell 4 photos an hour 8 times a day, but think about it . How long do you have to work for 80 Euros (=$100)? With CrowdFoto.net you could in 15 minutes earn the same extra cash as with some odd job in 5 hours!

Here is an example: Sally from Boston needs a photo of a family skiing in the Alps. Joe is in Switzerland with his familiy and he is quite savy making photos with his new smartphone. Crowdfoto.net brings them together:

1. Briefing

Sally visits Crowdfoto.net and enters a short briefing.

2. Publication

Crowdfoto.net lists the briefing and Joe finds it.

3. Photography

Joe gets to work and shoots the requested photo.

4. Processing

Joe uploads the pic, Crowdfoto.net checks it for compliance.

5. Proposal

Meike receives a notice to check uploaded fotos and likes Joe's photo.

6. Delivery

Meike pays, downloads the photo and Joe gets a wire transfer for €20.

Portfolio

See some recent work from talented amateur photographers below. Since our photos are on-demand, there is no real portfolio. Crowdfoto.net is granting exclusive usage rights to provided photos to keep clients safe from finding the same photo in similar, inappropriate contexts or in the works of competitors.
What you see below are examples, that are great work, but were not taken by any client. If your photos are not being bought, but are good, they will end up in this pool and you can earn money for them too.

Go upload your photos!

Everyone can.

Whenever you have a need for a specific photo, you just enter your instructions (and even a scribble!) into the briefing form and everyone can pick it up to submit a photo. You pay only to buy the rights to the photo when you have found the one that you like.

Everyone with a smartphone or camera can.

Whenever you have a smartphone or a camera with you, wherever you are, there may be someone who needs a picture from exactly where you are in a certain set up. Just check the briefings and enter your location as a search term. Or search for things you are doing right now. Maybe someone needs a picture taken on a skiing slope. If the client likes it, you have earned €20 in less than 5 minutes!

Why is the site in English?

So that everyone can ask for a photo or submit a photo. You can submit your briefing in any language you want, but with English you will reach the most potential photographers for your photo job. Allowing for briefings in any language means that anyone can ask for a photo and everyone who understands the language of the client can make the photo for her. When someone in France speaks only French, she can still add a briefing and even people who are not so good in French can make the photo. And with the scribble option its even more easy to understand each other.

Why is paypal the only paypal option?

Paypal offers payment execution without you having to open an account. You can pay with your credit card via paypal. We will see if this works out. For your feedback on payment, please refer to the contact section.
