    Welcome aboard.

    This question is asked over and over again... do a forum search and you'll find lots of good business ideas. There are many different types of photography out there... the important thing is to find your niche.

    What you have posted might be accepted on some stock photo sites, but speaking from experience you need lots and lots of images to make any money with stock photography.

    I would reshoot. A lot of clients will not accept a visible logo.

    hello. i'm new here. havent posted a formal hello message yet.

    I would agree with craig. Most (if not all) companies will not accept a picture of a recognizable logo or company name. I believe that's technically copyright infringment of that company. So unless you have their permission I would remove the name either by turning the cigarette or with photoshop.

    This is an excellent picture with a great message.
    I would try to put this on stock photography pages.

    One thing you'll find highly recommended if you search the forum is the latest version of Photographer's Market. It's a book that's published every year, and it's basically just a whole book of places/people that buy photos. I think it costs about $20, or your public library probably has it or can order it.
