# 1 – Photography
Interested in becoming a photo professional? 3 solutions are available to you.
You can specialize in in-studio photos to take portraits of people or photograph objects or products. If you wish to exercise this activity at home, you will need to reserve part of your accommodation to practice it.
The same goes if you want to be a fashion photographer. However, you will take the studio photos in your furnished space, but you will also be able to shoot outdoors. Your entire activity will not only take place at your home.
You can also professionalize yourself in photo reporting. It is not really working from home because you will most often be outside trying to capture moments from important events or from everyday life in various places. However, this is a self-employed activity where you will be your own boss. And that’s why we’re talking to you about it.
To get started in one of these photographer jobs, your needs will be the following:
– You must buy the equipment you need to make quality photos
– If you are in the studio, you must arrange part of your home for this purpose

#4 – Fashion: Sell T-Shirts, Socks and Other Forms Of Clothing
If you are looking for a pleasant, profitable business and you have some artistic talents, the world of shirts, t-shirts, and socks is for you. The designs of these clothing materials are done at home, and you can sell them on the internet from your home. You can even imagine managing the impression from home – but that requires a little investment.
Why choose this?
Firstly, it is a product that allows you to make a significant sales margin. The manufacturing costs less than 2 euros (it will depend on the quality of the fabrics – organic or not for example and that of the printing), and the selling price is between 12 and 45 euros. There are few products that offer the possibility of such a high profit.
The second argument, it is a product that is easily bought on the Internet. Whether for yourself (often for the feeling of joining a community) or to give a gift to friends or a loved one. This argument may seem light to you, but be aware that some products are shunned by Internet users because they prefer to buy them in stores rather than order them online. Would you buy sausage on the internet? Not me. However, I will be able to order a Father’s Day t-shirt online, a doggo socks and especially since I can do this from my office and the gift will be delivered and wrapped in gift wrap.
Create a Pattern to Print
You don’t have to be Picasso to find a photo to print on a t-shirt, socks or even shorts. It could be that of a family member, someone you love or even your dog and cat. A simple funny sentence will also do the trick. You can check out the custom weekend for socks ideas.
Don’t have a funny phrase idea? There are websites specializing in original quotes, so you don’t even have to think about it.
The 3 Techniques to Customise and Print a Clothing
You have a choice between three printing techniques:
Technique 1: Stencil
The simplest, provided you limit yourself in format and reproduce a simple visual, as well as making only a small series, in two colors maximum. Quite a durable impression (depending on the specific paint used).
Technique 2: Digital Transfer
You can find transfer sheets for inkjet printers and also for color laser printers and also black laser printers. The result can vary enormously depending on the quality of the sheets, the printer used and the image to be printed. The durability of printing is equally variable, and generally quite short.
Technique 3: Screen Printing
Requires special equipment and know-how. Lasting impression.
Choose 100% cotton t-shirts, with a grammage of at least 200 g / cm. Otherwise, you will have serious problems when printing, the fabric is not stiff enough, it will wrinkle when printing.
To start your business, choose the digital transfer technique. The result looks professional. Then when you have more means you can do screen printing by investing in a machine.
– in the market downstairs every Saturday morning

– on specialized sites which offer Internet users the opportunity to receive money for each creation offered
– to your friends in the evening
You can print the name of your website on each sock, t-shirt, and shirts so that your customers’ friends can also buy from you. And above all, remember that originality is the secret to success in this area.
