Welcome to the DT family... My best advice is to get 50 images accepted into your portfolio as soon as you can so you can go exclusive... that brings you alot more both in exposure and income... =)

I found major increase in sales after I went exclusive with Dreamstime as you get much more visible in searches etc...

Another advise is don't be disheartened if you get a rejection on any of your images... take the reasons for rejections to heart and use them to better your skills... Thats what I did even though it was depressing at times to get a photo rejected that I thought was a very good photo... As your skill gets better you'll see that maybe the reasons for the rejections were justified and that you just didn't see it because as you get better your standards get higher... =D

Good luck with your stock photography... =)

What? You are MUCH, MUCH better with lighting than any newbie is. Your portraits look very good. Are they self portraits? For people photos, I'd suggest you try to capture some activity going on. Those would get you better sales. The models are attractive for sure. :)

And 13 uploads is unlucky number. Upload some more quickly. ;)
I was going to add you to favorites but I can't. Site glitch probably. :/
