3,000 Photos!

posted on 24th of july, 2009

I just recently added the 3,000th photo to my portfolio. I can honestly say I thought this day would never come.

I signed up with Dreamstime back in late 2006 and it was the first stock site I signed up with after buying my first DSLR, knowing virtually nothing about photography.

I submitted around ten photos on a whim thinking I would give it a shot and if I was lucky maybe I could make enough to pay off my camera.

Out of that first group I think maybe two got accepted, but luckily I didnt let that discourage me. I continued to submit photos and was pleasantly surprised to see those first few sales.

Hey, If I can do it anyone can.
