Trying to transition from a full time “normal” 9-5 job into a full time photographer or videographer is tough. Luckily there are a lot of resources you can use in the 21st century to make it easier.
When I first moved to Austin Texas, I had a job lined up at GoDaddy. I quickly learned I couldn’t be in a room, locked up for 7-9 hours a day, slaving away for someone else. Even though I love GoDaddy products and their service, this Job wasn’t for me. I wanted to be my own boss and get back to freelance photography and take back my free time. Remember time is money? If you feel the same way, then maybe these suggestions will work for you.
You might think these next suggestions are obvious, but to some they aren’t.
The first three suggestions i’m going to recommend if you live near a bigger city or urban area……. Delivery Services!
I have been driving for Uber Eats, Door Dash, and Postmates now for just about a month. I have actually tested each platform out for a week at a time to see which one I make the most money from. My findings have concluded that here in Texas, I make the most with Uber Eats, followed by Postmates, then Door Dash.
Here is a screen shot of one week worth of part time pay:
Take the $574 and divide that by the 24 hours i’ve worked this week and you are looking at just about $24 dollars an hour (less gas and any other expenses). But the great thing about this, is that you can do it at your own leisure and I usually tend to do this in the evenings. I have been vlogging about this on my youtube Channel as well so make sure to give that a look and subscribe if you’re into making money 😉
Now below are links to sign up for a bonus after completing a certain number of drives. You do no have to use my code but if you enjoy this blog and are curious, please support by using this code.

Now these are just the quickest and fastest ways I could think of to start generating income. If you read my other featured blog post, you will see some past sites I have suggested. Well, I have a new one I just found and is perfect for freelance photographers. This is a legit website and it is called UpWork.com. This website is similar to fiver but has actual jobs where you bid on them based on your experience level. I just signed up and have written two proposals. I am waiting to hear back from the companies so I will have to update you with that in a week or so. Here is the link to check the website out. Click Here
