I am sad to say that recently I was robbed of some of my camera equipment. I was relieved of my recently acquired camera bag containing some of my lenses, my D80 camera all my chargers, flash unit and Sony handycam video camera, a loss of +- R50.000-00 in Rand currency. Even sadder is the fact that I did not have these insured - and here is the lesson in this - so will not receive money back for this equipment and will have to fork out for new one's. Lesson learnt if its worth a lot to lose then insure... continue reading

As recently mentioned in one of my blogs, I was intending taking photography more seriously and taking more images with my new D700 camera (which I bought for a pro course I intended doing)Well that said, I have still not taken these steps as I am not sure whether photography is a viable or sustainable income source these days. I have however, taken my camera out again and these are the first few images taken on my new camera. The quality of the D700 is superb and the f2.8 lens I bought with it... continue reading
On logging in today I was impressed to find that my latest sale was of this image.What made me impressed was that this is one of my most recently uploaded images, has only 32 views and sold for $4.32, and no that is not unusual, what is though, is that this image was initially refused due to lighting etc...I was surprised as I thought it was perfectly lit, and just thought oh well, they just did not like the image and despondently ignored to rectify the image. But for some... continue reading
I have recently been retrenched from my job after 23 years in the IT industry.I have gone for numerous job interviews but as yet have had no success in finding another job, this being due to age, job market congestion etc etc…As part of my retrenchment package I have been offered to study an additional course/s that will help me with job placement in the market. As I am well educated in my field already and my education has not helped me in my current trade market, I was considering doing something... continue reading
Hello to all, I have not been online much lately and have definitely not posted a blog for quite some time now, but hey, thought this was worth celebrating. I finally made over $1000.00 from my small PF and decided to share my success with you and let you know even though I have been quiet, I have not totally disappeared. To celebrate, I went out and bought myself a Nikon D700, which I hope will see me rejuvenated and out there taking more images over the coming weeks. I did get to test it out over... continue reading
Today is a big day for me, I have opted to go exclusive on DT and will await the result of decision from DT admins. I have also begun the process of removing my images from all other sites, and although there is something quite concerning about this process I am sure my faith in DT will be rewarded in the long run. Given the advantages of being exclusive I am sure my PF will see better search placement, upload bonuses and higher income per DL, besides this, being exclusive will allow me to focus more... continue reading
October was by far my best month since joining DT. I had a number of sales of the same image which took it to level 5, with a total number of 73 sales for the month and revenue of $134.14 this was by far my bumper month so far. Thanks to all the buyers, you definately made October a memorable highlight of my stock experience, if it keeps up like this I may have to work harder on uploading more images :0) continue reading
Well I have done it, finally I have 500 images uploaded to DT, now I can start feeling like I have made it to part of the exclusive club where my PF can be competitive (if only in numbers). This is not to say that I will remain on 500, its just a personal belief that now my PF can start to really grow and be recognised (we all have our dreams). Once again thanks to DT and the buyers, hopefully the next 500 will be quicker and more to your liking.Here is my 500th Image... continue reading
I have noticed on this and other sites that sales really slow down over the weekends. I just wanted to let the buyers know that I have absolutely nothing against them downloading my images over weekends, really its fine with me :0) continue reading
