My First Foray into Stock Photography

I've recently got back into photography after trading in my old Pentax and jumping onto the Canon bandwagon.

This does mean I need to start purchasing a load of new Canon compatible equipment though so I've decided to have a dabble at some stock photography.

Hauxley Beach

All the images so far are just ones I've had saved in various locations. Most of these were taken with my old Pentax.

From here on out though all the images will be uploaded within days of being taken and will all be taken with the new Canon equipment.

So here's hoping for some amount of success.

I just love how encouraging everyone is on the various Dreamstime blogs. Kind of like a brotherhood. I've had 6 images (files) accepted by Dreamstime. I've had views but no downloads, yet

Hi Luke, I'm from Carlisle, MA. USA.
I hate to say this, but with the competition in stock photography, you will be 70 before you can buy all the Canon equipment you think you'll need. Unless you make it a full time job, in which case your wife will probably be supporting you for the next ( 10 ) few years.
If you're really,really talented, you'll make it. If not, you will be able to afford a Starbuck's coffee once a week.
Good luck my friend!
