How to Start a Photography Business Using Microstock Sites

While photography can be a rewarding and fun hobby, it can also be a full time profession for many talented and skilled photographers. Not everyone can be a photographer for Sports Illustrated or Glamour but that doesn't mean that you can't make a good living from photography. Microstock photography, for instance, is a relatively new concept and a great way to make a little extra cash.

Sexy Photography Boosting Business

Sexy Photography Boosting Business

FORT MYERS: Women in Southwest Florida are getting their girlfriends, lining up, stepping behind the Red Door and taking it all off for eye-popping sexy photos. Those pictures are now catching on and boosting business.

As the saying goes, a picture is worth 1,000 words. But sometimes, a little less can say a lot more.

Michelle Weaver is the owner of Picture This - a photography studio on McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers. Last year, just before Valentine's Day, the studio held a first of its kind gathering for married women called the Red Door.

"It's sexy hot momma boudoir parties," said photographer Marie Kamp.

"Everyone is clad in a robe first, then it all changes. Women run around here, you know, in their birthday suits," added Weaver.

Kamp says it was during that Red Door gathering that she began taking the artistic pictures for the very first time.

"It caught on like wildfire. It has not slowed down at all. It's very popular," she said.

In fact, Weaver said the photos now make up 70-percent of the studio's revenue.

In a time when many downtown businesses are struggling to stay open, Picture This is hanging on thanks to a concept where the clothes come off when the camera turns on.

"This has been like CPR for our studio. It's really been the heartbeat," said Weaver.

It's a body of work that's proving to be a fine work of art.

"There's a fine line between sexy hot momma and smutty pictures. What we do is tasteful and appropriate. We do market to married women," said Weaver.
