Milestones, Targets, Achievements, and some Wishful Thinking

I was going to wait for my 1 year Stock Photo anniversary to pass before posting this, but having recently reached my annual target for uploaded images this year, and passing a milestone I certainly didn't expect to reach so soon, I decided to write it now, I don't think there are any more reachable milestones in the next month and a bit unless I get a couple EL sales or Google do another mass image purchase.I'll start with a very satisfying announcement, a couple of months ago I was wondering... continue reading

Imagining Business as a Newbie

Trying to figure out what THEY want...

Stock photography has really got me thinking about what THEY (buyers) really want.My usual fun and forgetful photography isn't proving of any interest to potential buyers.I had to ask myself a few questions.Wondering day and night what it was that I was missing.After deciding to research the site and others, I found that it was sometimes very simple.Talented photographers take oranges cut, sliced, peeled or whole and make them dance before the lens.I was in awe at how my kitchen could... continue reading
