I have looked at a lot of great work on this forum. I have been doing similar things on my own and was wondering if there was any money that could be made by doing this? Is there anyone doing this on the side and making money? How did you find clients and what type of work are you doing for them? How do you charge, by the hour or by the job?

It is not easy, best to take some business courses and learn to market yourself.
Then start trying to slog your wares anywhere you can, until you manage to make a name for yourself. It becomes slightly easier once you are a known commodity

Q: How to make a small fortune making images?
A: Start with a large fortune.

I've owned a company for the past seven years that does photography combined with digital compositing and image manipulation. Up until last fall the company earned roughly 50% of our household income for most of those seven years.

So I'd have to say yes to your question.

But this isn't the forum to discuss our clients or the type of photography/photoart we do.

Building a clientele isn't easy...and it takes time and momentum. In my experience, it also takes discovering a niche interest and knowing how to market your skills to a specific demographic.

Dude you crack me up! But seriously, in this business, I've made some good money sometimes and lost my ass in others. If you produce a quality and consistant product eventually it gets you by. If I ever get a large fortune, I'll invest in real estate.
