Glad to have a scientist on my royal court. Those numbers pleased me a lot. One question: big cash come from photos with people or from other kind like astronomy, landscapes etc? Thanks for posting my friend. Keep on the good job, I am ready to quit after 4 years of hard work :( Because my graph is going down :(
1) I am at your service, Your Majesty
2) I sold only 4 (!) images with people, so far. Besides, all these were subs. So, big cash come from other genres.
3) It would be pity, Your Majesty. Perhaps, things are going to get better?
7d + lenses: Canon EF-S 15-85mm/3.5-5.6 IS USM & EF 100mm/2.8 USM Mac...
congrats on your success!
on my first year anniversary a month ago, i had about 360 photos online and about $360 in sales. thus far my second year has given me another hundred and sales and i'm looking forward to a good or possibly even great year! (i'd really like to get an oly em5 or panny gh3).
I found the first year was a tough haul with many rejections whilst i was learning and growing with photographic and microstock knowledge.
I've managed to bump my dismal 30% acceptance rate to 55% now and hopefully it will climb.
i agree with other comments here. Don't expect overnight, raging success and most of all don't give up. I almost did many times. it seems, from my limited experience, that if you keep at it...you'll get somewhere.
I just came back from a long winter vacation. I guess, your advice about uploading photos is true. No activity, no selling. Database exposure will decrease so, as a consequence, less viewers, no sales. Thx for the advice.
