I think I should move to the beach
I was reviewing my portfolios on various sites to see which images were working best for me and clearly it's my nautical images. Lighthouses have been an especially good subject for me, and along with boats and other images of the sea, they account for over half my total stock photo sales.
I found this one from Nantucket in a slide show on the site of Budget Travel magazine for September licensed from Dreamstime in an article called Charming Fall Islands. It's no. 13 in the slideshow
Other DT contributors include Chris Yenney (couldn't find the photo on DT), Jiawangkun, William Perry, and Balloonguy. Here are their photos:
The photo of mine they licensed was also in the Daily Telegraph (UK) earlier this year, and this month another of my stock photos (of boats in Rockland Maine) was in Coastal Living magazine. Glad I took some more lighthouse photos in Iceland and Florida in August. Hope to get them up here soon! (I'm way behind on my plan to hit 1,000 images on DT in the next year. Taking a lot - was in California last week - more beaches! - but no time to process and post them!)
I actually grew up an an island, so perhaps that's why the sea is my favorite subject.
Here are some of the other nautical images I licensed in September from Westerley, Rhode Island (middle) and the other two from Maine :
And my two newest uploads are beach photos from Newport, Rhode Island:
I'd be interested to know what kind of subjects are other people's best-sellers. And I hope the folks whose photos are here get a peek at the article while it's still online.
