How many pictures for the first 1k?

Hello,

I've just started to upload stock photos in this platform, this is one my first photos:

I was wondering what should be the frequency of uploads and in how much time could one make the first 1k?

Thank you,

Ciprian Salceanu

Ups, excuse me for my mistake, Mr Talimaen :)
You're absolutely right! Of course quantity of the uploads and the subject also matter but if they don't have THE QUALITY .... sorry .. :)

You woke up very inspired Dessie :P
The quality only! What about the quantity of the uploads and the subject...
What about the human factor that rarely happens but it happens? :P

Buyers rarely buy an image outright, and even the extended licenses are pretty rare for a small portfolio. To print a bunch of postcards or calendars you only need the P-EL license for up to 10,000 copies. You can get that for 50 credits, or about $50. If the image is for sale at $350 you would need to plan on printing more than 50-70,000 copies to make it worth it. So yes, it is a bit of a fantasy :) Especially with only 8 photos on-line!

I'm puzzled why if buyers purchase an image outright, say for a card or postcard or calendar,[ at $350 say ] that money doesn't roll in much quicker than a few cents for each download. Am I fantasizing ? David.

Nobody seems to answer this seemingly simple question !

it depends on what you shoot and how diverse your portfolio is

I'd plan on 50-100 a month if you want to hit $1000 in your first year... No guarantees, though!

That's between you and the editors who review your uploads!
Cheers :)
