Not even uploaded my complete portfolio, still I have already 3 sales!

View of Venlo, The Netherlands

Hello everybody,

I'm a Dutch photographer. For the past I've worked mostly on commission as a sports, travel, nature and studio photographer before I got sucked into the corporate life. Now I'm trying to get back to photography and writing.

I'm started uploading the pics from my portfolio which I thought were good for RF. Well, most of my pics haven't even been approved or uploaded yet (now have 25 online) and I already have sold THREE shots, the best-selling shown above (giving me $ 5,00)! It may not sound like much, but I'm pretty psyched!

I'm amazed at how fast things can go here at Dreamstime! From all the RF-sites, Dreamstime was the that spoke to me the most, and so I decided to give it a whirl. And I must say, I'm not disappointed. I don't know exactly what you're doing right, Dreamstime, but keep on doing it.

Just wanted to share this. In the meantime, if you have a few moments, please let me know what you think of my work.

Kind regards,

Marcel Admiraal

Thanks for all the wonderful remarks! Good to know the DT community is a very active one, which is rare to find, to be honest. Usually it's all crickets and tumbleweeds if you're new.

I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Thanks again!

You are up to six sales now! Great job. DT is a great place for sales, but your skills and knowing what sells are also helping you. I am still learning those things so my sales are not as quick, but I think DT is a great place for beginners like me, too. The staff and other phi photos here are friendly and helpful. Welcome!
