1300+ images in my portfolio in 3 months :)

Hi all!

As some of you might have read already, even though I registered here in 2013, I started to upload images just in March 2016. Now, after 3 months, I already have more than 1300 images in my portfolio, and still many more to upload.

Here is some of them:

Amazing sunset in Prague

Sardinia, Italy

Mystic sunset

Zip-line adventure

Temple of the Golden Pavilion, Kyoto

Phi Phi Don, Thailand

Amazing sunset near the North Pole

Sales are going quite slow, but I know that I need to be patient, as I've just uploaded most of them (still 1 month ago I had only 300 images in my portfolio).

Now, I have some question to the "veterans" of DT. It would be nice if you could share your experiences and opinions.

- After how long time did you start to have good sales?

- How is the tendency? I mean, was it easier to have sales before (let's say 4-5 years ago), or now?

- After an image is downloaded, how long does it take before you actually get the notification of the sale on your account? (this question can probably be answered only by the editors)

And one last question to the ones that have decided to work exclusively for DT: was it a good choice for you? Would you recommend new photographers to do the same?

I will be grateful to all your answers!

Have a good day!

Great images and great job Diego! Congrats!
Not very easy to say when sales are flowing... For me it was kind of steps, at 700 hundred uploads and a bit later at 1500 uploads. But, I believe a kind of combination: relevant keywording is extremely important to start with!
Which criterias makes YOUR images more exposed - nobody nows, but for shure exclusivity... Also acceptance ratio seems to have some kind of impact. And of course sales - a ”popular” image pops up everywhere... Even this blog seems to be some kind of criteria... All kind of activity seemes to boost sales...
If you NOT got plenty of time to upload at ten+ agencies - go exclusive!
In the end - great images sell and you got many :-)

I think the keywording would have to have a lot to do with anyone finding a photo because there is so many here.

Hi, I don't count to the veterans but I must say that firstly you have done a great job with uploading and editing 1300 images in just 3 months - wow - and there are many really goodies. First thing what came up to my mind, was, "colourful portfolio". Anyway, regarding how long it takes till a picture starts selling, some of my best sellers took 5-6 months. Regarding exclusive - I think I did the right choice - sales picked up once I did go for exclusive.

Hi, Very good article!, congrat for your work. I am waiting for the big sales too. Ican't answer your questions but I am waiting for the "veterans" answer.

best regards
