3000 sales ............ and I'm not a full time photographer!


posted on 19th of september, 2013

A few days ago I reached 3000 sales now 3013 so I decided to show the images which have sold in recent days. First is online banking a concept image constructed with props from the ' pound shop ' I recommend it.
On holiday at Bridlington for just a few hours and not in the best weather [ blue sky and sunshine ] I got this
A rare Fiat 500 A Topolino seen at Brodie Castle vintage car rally sold

Another sale was examination of a sheep at an agricultural show
Then one time I posed for myself and took a picture of a Senior fending off an attack.
Unexpectedly the surface of snow sells quite well ! Banking and finance are shown in newspaper cuttings. Snow capped apples ruined by early frost sells well
Current political heavy weight is Vince Cable who predicted the financial crash of 2008.
Are you lucky in love? People buy a simple love concept.

Feeding pigeons in Edinburgh just sold

My sacrifice of a clock in time and tide is repaying me.

Finally an image which gained 50 credits or $27 was a green finch, Carduelis chloris but I had to wait two weeks for proceeds to clear.

When you get depressed suddenly sales pick up.

Earlier you started better your chances.................. but you might end up a only a little richer but a much better photographer.I urge newbies to keep going.

Cheng, Thank you for kind words but you've uploaded almost 1000 great images in 12 months........... more sales will follow. All my blog post can do is to encourage you to do more concept images. We learn from our rejections and hopefully get better as time goes by.

Adeliepenguin Thank you .....but you've sold more than me with half the images............ your quality or subject matter or both must have a lesson for me ! I note illustrators often do unbelievably well on DT.
