Milestone 100 sales!


posted on 19th of april, 2012



Many people in the Dreamstime community repeat the wisdom "Keep uploading, the sale will come!". It really is true, slowly but steadily I see my sales increasing and as I continue to learn and try to produce more concept photos I expect the sales will continue to grow even faster.

I have come to realize that stock photography is a long term investment. It is a marathon, not a sprint. I am in it for the long haul and I am happy with slow and steady progress as I am starting to see the long term potential.

So if anyone out there is doubting themselves, stick with it, continue to strive to reach that next goal or milestone, and things will pick up. It takes work and patience, but I think the long term rewards of making some money doing something you love is well worth it.
