Member of the $1000.00 club

I with great humility and appreciation accept membership into the $1000.00 club.

Yes it has taken awhile but I still will celebrate.

I also find it very interesting to look and see what have been the top sellers because I have always tried to be versatile and have a combination of photos that would fill the need of many types of situations.

My #1 seller

is very dear to me and as you can see is a people photo. It is fitting it should be #1 and makes me proud in more ways than just the photo

My # 2 seller

Also makes my very proud because it is a bit creative and with my best friend and fellow Dreamstimer "digitalreflections"

we often get together and shoot photos and share ideas .

This particular photo is of both of us and was shot with a remote and the self timer.

#3 Is not a people shot but a studio shot of a couple of sprinkler heads with glass melt aways.

#4 Is why you should always have the camera with you.

My wife and I were comming back from a get together and on the way home we came over a hill and the sun was shining through the spray of the irrigation system. As I pulled the truck over she said " wow look at that" and out came the camera and tripod. It's been one of my favorites even before I took it.

#5 Is an editorial of Rubiks cube, another indoor pre planned shot.

So the ols saying live by the sword, die by the sword might fit here.

I try to be versatile and in my top five sellers I have people, studio, nature, and editorial. A pretty good mix.

Please do not mistake my celebration with aragonce. I am sharing not bragging. We all take photos at our own pace and I'm sure some people sell $1000.00 every month but we all contribute and make it what it is.

$1000 in the pocket is fine to be bragging. why not? someone has to brag for you or me, so why not ourselves first, lol.
seriously, I think you hit the target sooner bc you discovered a niche.
Jolly good for you, as that is really the secret of success , esp for someone new in the race of microstock photography.
Don't spend it all in one place ( Look who's talking.. when I 've spent my 1000 bucks already, and have yet to earn it with Dreamstime, lol)

I don't think you are bragging at all. I recently did the same blog post, and I was just so excited I wanted to share with my DT family here (just like I imagine that you are!). I really like your images, and they are very well done. Here's to your continued success and your next $1,000! :)
