Well I don't do it myself, but Google is your friend. I found a page full (at the link) with one search.
what do you mean? people that will paint minis fo $$
Blue Table Painting (BTP to it's fans) is sweet. Check 'em out on youtube.com. They can do alot, or just a little, depending on what you want- fantasy, sci-fi, historical, custom, etc.
They also play the games they paint for, so there's a whole lotta love.
Yes, there can be alot of money in painting miniatures, if you have the talent. My question has always been, are 'pro-painted' miniatures worth the effort? Seems that it would take alot of time to paint up a good miniature, and the more hours you put into it, the less you make.
This fellow is speed-painting an army, no blending, display quality only on the leaders and certain pieces. Gawd it must be nice to make a living from that sort of thing
I wasnt talking about the buyers of the miniatures, of course it's a good deal. I was speaking of the individuals that put in the many hours painting the miniatures then selling them.
I started painting full time 9 years ago, and haven't looked back. I'm not going to get rich doing it, but my bills are paid every month, I have light and heat, and eat once in a while. I can't speak for the rest of the pros, but I love my job and can't imagine going back to a "real job".

Well for an army that you're going to use often, do you really want figures that are display quality? Granted, I know you want your figures to look good, but with use, they're going to get damaged, so personally, I don't want my figures painted up to display quality level.
Course, I do my own painting, so I take it to a level I like. But there's nothing wrong with hiring someone or painting figures for someone else and spending/making money doing it.
