fizwoz, Inc. is a San Francisco-based start-up that provides an online marketplace where individuals can sell photos they’ve taken on their cell phones. So, the next time you see Brad and Angelina strolling the streets with their gaggle, you can snap the photo, load it online, and probably get some money for it.

Categories they cater to include: Breaking News, Entertainment, Public Figures, Places, Sports, and Fun. Users upload their photos, name their price, and wait for the bidding to begin.

fizwoz is easy to use, has a great team behind it, and is a fun and easy way to make some money for users. You can download the app and be up and running right away. ChipChick writes: “Every picture is worth at least one thousand words, but maybe you have one worth one thousand dollars.” Wooohooo! We like the sound of that!
