One year on DT

posted on 2nd of june, 2011

I can't believe one year has already passed since I signed in. Last June after reading someone's blog about stock photography I decided to give it a try. I started to upload all sorts of pictures without knowing what stock photography really is and unavoidably like most beginners I was really upset about rejections.
In August I had already given up on stock photography and I didn't even bother to check my account from once in a while.An moths passes this way. One day in February I decided to sign in again to see what happened around here. Although I had only 5 pictures online one of them was sold in December.That was all I needed to come back and start uploading more:)
I only have 16 pictures online at the moment and 7 sales but as soon as I have more time and after I finish my exams at the University I will definitely upload more.
So here are the pictures that have been sold until now:

and others I think should sell well in time:

Keep it up and congrats! I was here longer. Initially, I uploaded two images...gave up for a year or two. Then, I came back again. I think perseverance is needed and success will come soon:D

Hello , and congrats on your first anniversary as a DT stock photographer. Yes, at the beginning like all businesses , it is frustrating learning the ropes. Rejections can be hurtful to the ego, but majority of the editors who review your work here and other sites are not in the business to hurt your ego or spoil your day. But , of course, like other businesses, you do get one or two of that sort of creatures, lol.

I can only tell you what I do, as I am still growing as well. Just keep making those photographs and submit it to DT. Sure, look at what sells for you , as it will be pointless to make photos and give to DT if they don't sell for you.
time and patience , and at this stage for you, it's too early to give up. You have too little in your portfolio. I would say, wait until you have about 500 images in your portfolio, and if it is still not working for you, then give up, lol.
But if you look at the others here in this community, the successful ones have been here a long time...(More)
