The first 100$ - at last!

You will laugh but it took me practically an year to earn the first 100$ on DT. But I'm not a professional photographer, and sometimes I did not upload new photos for months.

My first photo was sold 23.05.09 and after 11 months - 19.04.10 - I sold one of my favourite photos with children playing on the river that has earned the last 0.88 cents to the first 100$ (at last!)

I hope the following year on DT will be more fruitful :-)

Good luck to all of you!

Thank all of you again! You're right that next 100$ will come faster - I see it in my current earnings.
Good luck, my dears!

ai...you have beaten me there: it has taken me nearly 4 years !! but today I reached 100 USD as well......I rarely upload photos (I am too critical for myself) so not that bad I guess.

Up to the 200 USD in your case :)

Congratulations!
More than three months, I only earned 2.99 $. I do not know when I can earn my first 100?
I do not have too much time into microstock, I am also an amateur photographer.

Congratulate you once again!

Don't feel so bad, it took me two years to reach payout, and I am a " working professional " (it's what I do as a living outside of stock). Success in stock photography has nothing to do with professional or not, it's more to do with your willingness to work 24/7 to mass produce the pictures buyers can use. And even more importantly, knowing the right keywords to get your portfolio found in the search.
I learned that after two years , lmao. But I still don't have that 24/7 to give to microstock, as I can only do it during my time off in the 18 hour day business I have. Many successful microstock sellers who earn a living with it do just that, 24/7. It's a reality and as they say, you get what you put in.
Congratulations.
and oh, btw, the next payout will come sooner... I am already half way to my next payout..
