posted on 2nd of may, 2010


I am new to this site and love it. I know for sure my photography has vastly improved ! I have 5 photo's uploaded with lots of views but no sales. Please tell me of your experieces of the first few months and when I might expect to get my first sale.

Hello, and welcome.
It's hard to predict when the first sale arrives. But don't waste your energy worrying over that. Conserve your energy to get your camera and shoot some more. It's not when the first sale comes that matters, it's how regular it occurs.
Better the first sale arrives later, but the future sales happen daily.
And this can be possible with good stock images. Think and ask yourself, "Will I want to use this picture for an ad, a website, etc.? Is this going to be something that is better than the others here? " If the answer is a big yes, you're on the way :)
Keep working at it. It will come.
