First sale of 2013! :)

This image was sold first this year. December was nice with 5 sales. Hoping to make it 10+ this month? I have a very, VERY small portfolio. A cute little port isn't going to earn a cute sum.

Approaching 200th Sale

Rather than writing about having 200 sales, I thought it’d be fun to think of what I could have done differently so that rather than having 200 sales, I could have been approaching my 500th sale. You know, the “woulda, coulda, shoulda”s.The first thought that comes to mind, of course, was the reckless uploading in the beginning.The rejections were more than just rejections, if you know what I mean.It’s not so much that one of my images didn’t get accepted, it was more like rubbing... continue reading


So I have been on Dreamstime for 5 months now and here are my stats 75 pics online, 32 pending, and finally today I had my 20th sale. Thanks to the buyers. Hopefully I can step it up in the next 5 months. But I think it is pretty good for a amateur photographer. I have learned so much but am still getting the comment "Lack of compostition". Boy is that frustrating but im getting better. Good luck to everyone in 2009!!!!Here are my latest downloads: continue reading

Sales stats - the addiction

I know many microstock photographers became addicted to checktheir stats. That is quite easy, being the numbers there at disposal.
