Quit my day job

posted on 26th of november, 2008

I would love to quit my day job and just do photography and illustrations for a living. Here is my question: Roughly how many images would it take downloaded on DT to make around $2,000 pe month. I know that is not a lot, but without all the extras I could quit my job and do what I really love doing.
Anyone have any suggestions.

Thank you so much for your comments. This gives me an idea of what I have now and what I could have if I work very hard.
I am also looking at different avenues to sell my work, like wedding photography. I can make money taking the photos for them, get a model release and put those photos on here.

That is quite a goal and one I am sure we are all striving for. In all my research I have come to the same conclusion as everyone else, it takes TIME, hard work and good quality, relevant images. Good luck to you, I know you can achieve that goal.

Good luck to you, really.
This is a dream of mine, too. We, postgraduate students in Russia, get scholarship about 50$ per month :( So I dream of a day when I can do illustrations for a living. Dreamstime is a real chance.

For me, average $1 per download, meaning If I want to earn $2000 per month. I need about 2000 downloads per month... :(
