My bestseller used on a website!

Now this is something really exciting! I casually searched my bestselling image, the comet and moon night scene...and found it on a binocular related website along with many other spectacular images. This isn't really the typical "bestseller" with 300 downloads. It only has 5 downloads...but for me that is quite a good sale rate because this file isn't even 6 months old. This would make it to level 5 one day (nobody got arrested for dreaming yet). :)Here is where it is used: Which-binoculars... continue reading

I think I should move to the beach

I was reviewing my portfolios on various sites to see which images were working best for me and clearly it's my nautical images. Lighthouses have been an especially good subject for me, and along with boats and other images of the sea, they account for over half my total stock photo sales.I found this one from Nantucket in a slide show on the site of Budget Travel magazine for September licensed from Dreamstime in an article called Charming Fall Islands.
