New images, cracks and eggs!

I have had some time on my hands the last days as I managed to crack my toe (ouch) and was instructed not to walk unless necessary.

Next Milestone reached.

I have now exceeded the 100 images on-line in my portfolio and over the last couple of months or so have seen a more steady increase of sales. OK, I still have a long way to go but it does go to prove that increasing your portfolio assists in your sales.By the time I reached 100 images I also set myself a target for 20 sales or so (I would have liked many more of course... but a milestone is a milestone!) and I am happy to report that I reached 32.I also got my first editorial image accepted... continue reading
