    I registered for their photo contest I'm pretty sure. My once fresh and spam free email...is now FULL of spam.
    There's also no way to opt out...so I'm screwed.

    It's a scam...they will offer to put your photo into a book (which you can buy for $90)...but the book has 20,000 small photos (like stamps).

    There are 'stock photo' sites...but they either have very high standards or pay very very little.

    If you want to make money, try selling an actual product (framed photos etc.) or better yet, sell the service of photography.

    May i suggest you have a webmail address like Myway that you use just for replies to sites such as this or ones that insist on a valid email before giving out information. This way I make occasional repeat visits to check for a particular reply (ie password) but the collected spam gets nowhere near your regular email address.
