1000 dollars

Nordic flags

Yesterday I past the thousand dollar mark! Close to five hundred sold images (two left) after a bit more than two years. On conventional stock market before microstock existed this was my level for a month or so with less images on stock.

For the newbees it might be interresting to now that my sales came on a higher level when I past some seven hundred images online. So just head for as many - good - as possible. My next goal is two thousand images online. Also, my bestseller so far is - flags...

Anyway, some of the cash will finance a combined ski- and phototrip to Austria next month :-)

Hi Per
As I mentioned before, I only signed on with DT Feb 2 2015 and I just got my first notification that they excepted 4 out 5 shots. I've got 30 more on backlog. I'm hoping they receive the same acceptance. Anyway, I can only imagine what I'll feel like when I sell my first one

Thanks Sven! By reading the blogs you will learn and understand what its all about. Even if most of the DTiers are hobby photographers - or semi professionals - its all about selling your images on a commercial market. The pros are in many ways on top here. You can check out their portfolios and learn a lot from there to... Selling is about satisfying the byuers need. Pricing in microstock market makes it possible for many more buyers - also non profit. Which widens the possible topics for illustration. Wich is very good for us :-)
Welcome to DT!
