A big HELLO from the UK
im a total Newbie to stock Photos!
Ive really got into my photography over the last year, doing family shoots (& a few weddings) for friends and family & expanding from there.
I thought id give stock a stab and try drum up a bit of pocket money (we all know how expensive camera equipment is)
Im totally stoked ive been accepted to Dreamstime, TOUGH looking at other peoples work – ive got a lot to learn lol
You guys are truly inspirational! – if you have and advice or comments on my pics so far – please do share.

Welcome. Excellent work, you have talent. Sales will come, but be patient. Don't forget to shoot people, big money will come from this kind of photos. Have a nice day.

Popular This week and Popular Searches
A suggestion - titles factor in the search so don't title your images with cutesy titles. This isn't fine art and buyers usually search using descriptive words, not emotional ones. A buyer searching for "Naughty but Nice" is probably not looking for a chocolate cupcake. If they are trying to find an image to illustrate that concept and have decided that they want to illustrate it with a chocolate cupcake they will search for a chocolate cupcake. Good image by the way. After looking at it I find a need to go get myself something sweet.
