600 photos milestone and 400+ sales!!

I have been trying to do more conceptual work recently to add to my portfolio but will never give up good ole mother nature!I really enjoy the DT community here - what a great bunch of people and artist in one place!!This one below... continue reading

My Keyword Thoughts

Hello Everyone!Just want to start by saying I am no SEO expert by any means! But I do have an understanding of just how important keywording is.However as I learned a great way for key wording in Lightroom that is going to save me a ton of time by the way!! (another story) I started to think about this:Does anyone add their name as a keyword? Now I know I am not famous or anything so it is unlikely that someone will search for me specifically ( I am talking more for Google searches... continue reading

28 photos and $10.00 later.

So I am still "kinda" new and now have only 28 photos online and have made just over $10.00 so far. I really enjoy this even though I have limited time to work on it but I feel like DT is one of the best if not the Best Stock agency.
