7 sales in 7 days

Hello Dreamstimers,

This is my first blog and have to figure it out how erverything works. Anyway the reason why I write this is, is that I have 7 sales in 7 days. For me as beginner is this a huge milestone for the moment and I am so happy with it. In september 2010 I became member of Dreamstime and loaded up 6 photos. The next 14 months I had no uploads anymore. One of these photos had an unexpected sale in august. It was a tropical butterfly.

In november 2011 I started with uploading photos more regulary. I have now 54 uploads and another 6 pending. Including the sale of a few months ago makes it a total of 8 sales. I think my colleague was right. Many many times she said that I have to do more with my photos. Who is waiting for my pictures there are a lot more photographers who takes better pictures then me, I always said. Glad that I am finally listen to her.

My last sale was a photo of a Golden eagle and I already sold it twice.

What to do next I asked myself. In the first place keep on uploading, I still have lots of pictures which has potential to be accepted on Dreamstime. And about exclusivity I am tracking my results for the next 3 months and then make the decision to go for it or not. I really like Dreamstime for the community. I can read articles in the forum and blogs from other photographers. This is a great place where I can learn a lot. Thank you Dreamstime.

Below are my other sold pictures:

Greetings, Paul

Hello Dreamstimers, thank you all for writing those lovely words about my portfolio. I have never expected that there would be so much reactions, but afterwards I like it. A lot has happened after writing this blog. Some images has been added to collections and two people added me as their favorite photographer. I also have the idea that there are a lot more views in total for my portfolio. Now I am hoping that some potential buyers will also read these kind of blogs. I can not wait to write the next blog, but first I have to reach a new milestone. Greetings, Paul.
