I have just passed a significant landmark today (Sept.18 2013).
My total earnings have just passed the $20,000 mark from just over 13,200 sales.
After a very slow start when I first joined DT in late 2009, my total earnings figure is now increasing by around $1000 every 5 to 8 weeks.
Most of the 5224 images in my portfolio are of travel and wildlife subjects. Both are types of work that people say will not sell well. I think differently. I earn my entire income from shooting mostly this type of work and I find it sells very well indeed.
DT account for only about 8% of my total turnover, the majority coming from my mainstream stock agencies.
These are a few of my recent 'Editor's Choice' images:
I know the first image is not travel or wildlife, it's a studio shot taken using 'light-painting' techniques. I've included it here because it has sold so well since being accepted for 'editors choice' in mid August. It has been viewed 2188 times and sold 18 times.
The hot air balloon has been viewed over 2500 times and made 28 sales.
All these images have sold very well, as I'm sure all 'editors choice' images do, because of the 'exposure' they get on the 'home page'..
Update 30th Oct 2013:
Just passed another small landmark - 21K - now at $21,038 total income and in the next few days I will also pass 14,000 sales.
