Who buys feet pics?
People often wonder who’s in the market for feet pics or they just assume that only feet enthusiasts would be interested in foot photography.
Indeed, some people enjoy the sight of feet and like to admire pictures of feet in different poses and angles.
But there are many other groups of people interested in foot pics:
- Feet lovers
- Podiatrists or orthopedic doctors’ offices
- Stock photo websites
- Modeling agencies
With such a vast clientele, there are many ways to make money by selling pictures of feet.
The most helpful way to get started is to advertise where your market audience is searching for the latest pics.
Who should sell feet pics?
Anyone interested in earning extra money can pick up a camera and start selling feet pics as a side hustle.
With the excellent cameras on our phones nowadays, all you need is your handy iPhone or android, some decent lighting, your two feet, and maybe a pair of cute shoes to get started.
If you want to go all-in and provide a variety of foot pictures, you can try to find some foot models in your circle of friends.
Your friends need to be 18 years old or older and sign a waiver allowing you to sell their images free of copyright.
How to sell feet pics without getting scammed?
As with any side hustle or online sales, there are always people looking to get something for nothing.
Or worse, trying to find your location, personal data, or banking information.
You need to take a few key steps before selling your foot pics online to maintain your privacy and safety.
1. Stay anonymous
Anonymity is essential when selling photos online.
As much as we hate to admit it, there are risks whenever you provide services to anyone online.
Even if you want to test out the idea of selling foot pics online, take the time to make a new email address, social media profiles, and pick a pseudonym.
Make sure these accounts are generic, with no real names or hints towards who you are.
And when returning messages to potential buyers, keep the email signature or DM free from any phone number and use your pseudonym.
2. Only show your feet
While many foot pictures don’t include people’s faces, there is a market for pictures including your face.
While your sample pics on your profile may only be of your feet, you will likely receive special requests.
While the final decision remains your own, we recommend not providing pictures that include your face.
People can reverse search your images to find your social media accounts and, in consequence, you.
3. Keep things professional
The more you become involved and popular in your feet picture business, the more questions, inquiries, and special requests will come in.
You may have repeat customers or regular clients who are always polite in their communications.
It, however, remains vital to keep things professional, regardless of how polite or respectful they have been during past communications.
Personal questions can sometimes be asked casually, and we end up giving away sensitive information without realizing it.
Stick to business, focus on the order details, and that’s it.
Never be shy to say no or cut ties with a client pushing boundaries.
4. Remove EXIF Data from your feet pics
An important factor that many people are unaware of is that when you take pictures, they contain EXIF Data regarding your camera (or phone camera), which can include GPS coordinates.
If somebody is determined to locate you, they could extract this metadata to pinpoint where the images were taken and potentially find you and other personal information.
But not to panic; luckily, you can make some simple tweaks to protect your information.
These steps will allow you to disable the GPS feature and remove any remaining data before sending your images to clients.
To disable the GPS option on your phone, follow these steps:
For iPhone users, go to
- Location Services
- In Allow Location Access, select Never.
For Android users, the steps will vary by phone; however, it should not be too difficult to locate.
A quick Google search for your specific phone can help.
For my Samsung A10, the process was pretty straightforward
- Select Deny from the listed options
Now, if you need to remove the GPS data from pictures you have already taken, or you want to remove other sensitive data like your name, here’s how to do it.
- Right-click on any picture and select the Properties.
- Select the Details tab
- At the bottom, select Remove Properties and Personal Information
- In the new window, click the box Remove the following properties from this file
- Press the Select All button
- Press OK
As you can see in the bottom right image, my full name was available in the metadata for anyone to find.
You can find more information on EXIF Data here.
5. Decline overpayments
While this scam is not new, it unfortunately still manages to get plenty of people each year on platforms like Facebook Marketplace and Kijiji.
The buyer will “accidentally” send the seller extra money and somehow work in a storyline.
This ploy generally requires the seller to return the extra money through a fake Paypal email and Western Union.
The stories can be so far-fetched; I once had someone tell me they were a marine biologist out at sea needing to buy my dress as a gift for their daughter.
The scam was to send me $300 for the dress and the shipping costs and me to click on the fake Paypal link to confirm the money had been received.
Foot pics are usually sent as digital goods.
A possible scam could be requesting real pictures be mailed out to them for an additional amount in compensation and building the hustle into that.
Always be cautious of anyone willing to hand away extra money.
6. Watermark your image ads
Before posting any feet pics online, you will need to decide how you want to protect your work.
You can watermark them with your business name, logo, or website address.
Alternatively, you can choose to blur the image.
Blurring the pics not only protects your work from being used by another seller but also prevents buyers from basically getting a freebie (some may not mind the watermark).
You can easily blur your images using Canva (the free version is all you need). Just follow these simple steps;
After uploading your images inside an individual project:
- Select Edit image
- Type Blur in the search box
- Select Auto or Blur, which lets you adjust the level
7. Avoid price negociations
People will always try to haggle you on the price, even if it’s as low as $5 a foot pic.
While it’s ok to be a little flexible on custom orders or bundles, try to avoid lowering your prices in other cases.
You will get some pushback from some clients when it’s time to raise your prices as your skill develops, but those who value the quality will stick around.
8. Payment reception
We highly recommend that you only release the images to your buyer after clearing their payment.
In this day and age, we have so many options available.
You can choose to use an app like Paypal, Patreon, Cash App, or Venmo.
If you’ve decided to sell your feet pics through your own website, then Woo Commerce or Shopify may be of more interest to you.
To avoid the risk of fraud, verify that the payment has been received in your account before releasing the photographs to your client.
However, when using a payment system such as Venmo or PayPal, you have to remember that clients can attempt to use the purchase protection policies to their benefit.
You could technically transfer the funds out of your account before releasing the feet pics.
However, if you lose the case, your account will be in the red, and the money will be taken from the next payment which enters your account.

What type of feet pictures are in demand?
Selling feet pics can be a great way to make some extra money.
But if you’re not sure what style of pictures you’d be interested in selling of your feet, there are over 30 different categories.
Here are some popular feet pictures sub-niches:
How to take good quality feet pics
If you want to increase your chances of making sales, you need to approach selling feet pics as a business.
While you don’t need to be a professional photographer, you want to provide high-quality images.
There are some important areas to focus on that will help improve your feet pics from the get-go.
And remember, your feet need to be the center of focus, so make sure they are always the star of the image.
Do your research
When you’re new to any field, research should always be your first step. It’s always a good idea to look at your competitors to see what’s working for them.
They have already gone through the hard work of figuring out what works in the market and climbed the ranks.
You are in the fortunate position of being able to observe and learn.
- What poses are they using
- What type of accessories
- What colors themes are present
- Indoor vs. outdoor shots
- Minimalistic vs. more styled
- General pics or more niched down
Take notes and incorporate some of the tips into your original pictures.
This research can also help you decide which style of foot pics you would like to offer clients with special requests.
Care for your feet
Are you planning to focus your foot pics on a specific sub-niche dedicated to people with rough or calloused feet (yes, there’s a market for everything)?
If not, you’ll want to take care of your moneymakers.
You don’t have to spend anything astronomical, but you should put a small budget towards getting basics like foot scrubs, a hydrating foot lotion/oil, and pumice stone.
Here are 10 at-home self-care tips for your feet:
- Examine your feet regularly for changes in appearance, color, or swelling.
- Pay attention to foot hygiene, including washing and drying your feet daily in warm water (including in between your toes)
- Exfoliate your feet once per week to remove dry skin cells and help your moisturizer do its job.
- Use a pumice stone when showering to remove any callouses.
- Moisturize or oil your feet after you shower; this helps maintain the moisture your feet absorbed while you were bathing.
- Moisturize again before bed.
- Apply sunscreen to protect your feet.
- Remove any stains from your toenails using lemon juice and baking soda (you can find more toenail whitening tips here).
- Trim your nails and cuticles regularly.
- Wear shoes, sandals, or slippers even around the house to prevent cuts or stains on your feet.
But remember to let your feet breathe throughout the day (open-toe sandals or slippers may be best).
And if your budget permits, you can also get a monthly professional pedicure.
The following video contains some interesting at-home foot care remedies for getting soft and supple feet.

Upgrade your business as you grow
While investing in a business or side hustle can be a great idea, I’m also extremely frugal and like to keep things minimalistic.
And let’s face it; many people don’t have the extra money to go out and buy equipment or take special courses before some profits start rolling in.
However, if you have some disposable income or have started filling orders, a couple of affordable extras could take your foot photography to the next level.
As someone who often takes food pics for my business, these are some of my favorite affordable photography equipment.
- Neewer 2 pack dimmable USB lights
- Double-sided photography backgrounds
- Photography 5-in-1 light reflector
- Ring light with tripod
You can choose to upgrade your camera once the budget allows for it.
Panasonic LUMIX mirrorless camera set
Foot photography tips
Foot photography is like most types of photography; you need to find your best angles and shoot with great lighting.
- Get as many angles as you can and see what works best for your size and shape of feet
- When available, use natural light; the light hitting from the side tends to work best
- If you don’t have enough natural light, use LED studio lights.
- Try out your phone’s camera filters; some offer excellent lighting
- Edit your feet pics in Canva, adjusting for brightness, contrast, and saturation as needed
Use different backgrounds, either backdrops that you purchase or items around your home.
You can build a portfolio using different backgrounds, such as;
You can expand your portfolio with more stylized feet pics using different props or accessories;
- Foot jewelry
- Fishnet stockings/nylons
- Shoes or Sandals
- Stick on tattoos
- French pedicure
And don’t forget to make sure your feet are nicely lotioned before taking your feet pics.

11 top poses for feet pictures
You should be prepared for custom orders as you start selling feet pics.
There are many different types of feet angles and poses that can be requested, so it’s best to become familiar with them.
Top of the foot: This simple pose is one of the most favored; nothing crazy going on here, just a focused top view of your feet displaying all your toes.
Bottom of the feet: With this type of picture, we want to focus on the soles of the feet, take some close-up shots which show the details and lines of the feet, and some photos slightly further away.
Arched foot: Focus on the foot’s arch; one foot can remain straight to show the arched foot in juxtaposition.
Crossed feet: A simple pose of your feet crossed, with or without sandals.
Feet in the air: As the name entails, you can take various pictures in different poses where your feet are in the air.
A favorite pose is when the model rests on her stomach with her feet crossed in the air.
Spread toes: Again this is a simple pose, just some pictures of your feet with their toes spread apart.
You can get a little artistic here and lay your feet in the sand or on grass. If your client is interested in dirty feet pics, you can spread your toes in some mud.
Candid photos: Take some foot selfies doing everyday things, whether walking around town, playing sports, or relaxing your feet at the end of a busy day.
Foot cleavage: So, how do you show foot cleavage? Find some sexy pointed heels that show the beginnings of your toes.
In high heels: Have some fun with your beautiful shoes.
Take a mixture of images, some with the heels fully on, some crossed feet, and others with a shoe just dangling from a single toe.
Dirty feet: Here, we have the dirty bottom of the soles on display. Requests might include mud, sand, dust, or even chocolate syrup.
Manicured feet: Just as some people prefer pics of dirty feet, others want to see a nicely manicured set of feet on display (a french manicure is a popular choice).

Since you are ready to start selling feet pics, you must be wondering where’s the best place to get started.
There are, in fact, many different places feet pictures are sold; however, some platforms can be a little less obvious than others.
Luckily we have a complete list of platforms you can review and choose from to get started on your business.
How to sell feet pics on apps or websites
With so many platforms available to choose from, it can get a little overwhelming.
We don’t want to spread out efforts too thin, so it’s best to select a maximum of two outlets to market your feet pics.
Kijiji & Facebook Marketplace
These two platforms are almost identical in how they operate.
They both offer a valuable network for classified ads for numerous product categories and services.
All you need to do is sign up for an account, make your listings, and decide how you want to get paid.
Craigslist is a great way to sell anything, but what about your feet pics?

The forum is essentially the main difference between Craigslist versus Kijiji or FB Marketplace.
See who’s hanging around asking questions, and you may be able to find some additional clients through the area.

You can start selling feet pics and videos on Dollar Feet once your account is approved after the 24-hour wait period.
Dollar Feet will also pay you $10 for each 10-minute video you upload (videos need to be approved).
We have included Dollar Feet on our list since his article is a complete guide; however, the platform does have some red flags that you need to consider.
They expect your videos and pics to contain your face, which is not an option if your goal is to remain anonymous.
And quite frankly, some of the wording in the FAQ section regarding this subject is quite off-putting.
They also expect you to list your height and weight, and the website states, “We accept only athletic models” which is not inclusive.
The wikiFeet website is a little different; its site focuses on celebrity’s foot pics.
However, if you click on the my.wikiFeet pink button in their menu, you will be able to apply as a model to sell feet pics on their sister site.
Men can also apply to be foot models by clicking on the wikiFeet Men button.
One important point to note, the platform only supports payment models via Bitcoin.
Create a website
While starting a website generally won’t lead to immediate cash, it’s definitely an option to keep in mind for long-term sellers.
A website would provide more control and business opportunities over time.
You could sell feet pics, accessories, mugs, hats, T-shirts which included your feet pics, or foot-inspired designs that Printify can handle and make for your buyers.
Setting up a website can be pretty simple:
- Get started on WordPress.org
- Buy a domain name
- Sign up for hosting
- Use the free Kadence theme
- Use free Kadence starter templates to design your site
For hosting, I recommend Bigscoots shared hosting plan to get started.
While there are some cheaper options on the market, I personally cannot recommend most of their sub-par hosting or customer service.
Stock photo websites
If you are simply interested in selling your feet pics to stock photo sites or expanding where you sell, the following websites purchase feet pictures.
- Adobe Stock
- Getty Images
Each site is slightly different, but you just need to follow the steps, create an account and upload your feet pics.
How to sell feet pics on social media
With so much of our daily lives centered around social media, it’s no surprise that we turn to them when it comes time to make money.
While Snapchat and Instagram are popular choices for selling feet pics, it’s also important to select the platforms you feel you can put the most effort into.
There is no point in choosing a platform and posting once a month because you don’t enjoy the experience of using that site or app.
Find one to two social media channels that are a fit and concentrate on high-quality content.
Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms to sell feet pictures.
In 2021 Instagram was ranked the 4th most popular social media site with over 1.86 million active users.
The app focuses on users sharing pictures and videos and attracting new followers using strategic hashtags.
You can essentially build an entire business on the Instagram platform with high-quality photos, proper marketing, and consistent posts.
How to sell feet pics on Instagram
- Make an Instagram Professional Account & select your business category
- Set up your bio, and make it the best you can aesthetically
- Add Linktree for any external links you want to promote
- Add your watermark or blurred feet pics to your profile to entice buyers without giving the goods away.
- Use strategic foot-related hashtags (check what your competition is using); this will help boost your visibility to the right users. You can use 30 hashtags per post if you want. We suggest testing different combos to see which hashtags work best for your posts.
- Be consistent; Instagrammers do best with daily posts
- Send feet pics to clients after receiving your payments
Among the other social media channels, Instagram is the one platform that truly thrives on aesthetics.
Users use filters for almost everything, and styling is essential, so put forth your best quality photos for this platform.
Some popular Instagram hashtags for feet are: #feet #foot #toes #softfeet #feetpics #pantyhose #nylon #tights #footfetishnation #feetlovers #instafeet #instaarch #instafeetlove #girlsfeet #bigfeet #feetlover #pantyhosefeet #selfeet
With over 2.85 billion members, Facebook is the most popular social networking platform.

While I am a massive fan of Tik Tok and spend way too many hours on the app, I’ll admit that foot videos are not on my FYP.
But I know that consistently posting on Tik Tok is a great way to grow a business on the platform.
While you can now do 15 seconds, 60 seconds, and 3-minute videos, the shorter videos remain the most popular.
And after doing some searches on Tik Tok, there is indeed a market for feet pics and creators posting videos with links to their websites or OnlyFans accounts.
How to sell feet pics on Tik Tok

- Complete your profile and add feet related keywords
- Try and post a short video each day

You can post short videos or foot pictures which is also the perfect way to tease your buyers as they only remain on the platform for 24 hours.
Another great feature of this platform is the ability to charge a subscription fee on a premium Snap account.
Most sellers will charge between $5 to $50 per month for premium access.
How to sell feet pics on Snapchat
- Start by creating a Public account

Follow your competition to find potential buyers.
How to sell feet pics on Twitter

While we can often think of Reddit as purely a forum for asking questions or searching for answers, the site offers much more to its users.
While Reddit does offer a forum, there is also social news, and, in its way, Reddit is a social media network.
Members can contribute to the site, and your content can be upvoted or downvoted, making it possible to garner traffic from the site and find potential clients.
How to sell feet pics on Reddit
