Milestone: 10 000 photos online!

Finally! The 10 000 photos milestone achieved! Since 9 000 photos online it took 7 month... and since I have posted the 1st photo ( July 2010) it was almost 7 years...

Photolee8: What I have submitted I track in my computer (I have sorted photos). What was accepted and what was rejected I keep just in Dreamstime.

Tgedwards: Unfortunately(?) not. It´s still just my hobby. But it makes some money to family finance :). And also it costs some...

Babar760: Latest photos I have in my portfolio are sold more than the older ones, except few photos that are already sold several times.

Hi Thorken, Great to hear that you have uploaded 10,000 images. Does this mean you are now making a full time living from Stock photography? At what point did it become viable? What would be the average monthly earnings? How many images would you estimate would have to be accepted for this to be a "real" job?

Thank you and all the best.

I agree with Babar760. I would slow down with uploads to see a better ratio of downloads per image. It is tempting to upload pictures though, and congrats, 10,000 uploads is a lot of work. Wish you more downloads.

How do you keep track of what you have submitted, what was excepted and what was not excepted . Do you use a computer program or an album

Don't chase the big number of photos, instead chase the photos sold. You have to reverse your ratio. Shoot less, sell more grasshopper! Be more selective.......

That's quite an achievement and good to see how it's gone from starting and through to the latest photo.
