This is my latest milestone, 4,300 Downloads. This image is also one of my newest. I just uploaded it last week. The reason I like to post these blogs, is to hopefully, give people just starting out here, a reason to believe that with hard work, dedication and patience, you can actually make some money. I know, in the grand scheme of microstock, I am a small fry compared to some of our micro-stock super heroes, but I am happy and after 18 months here, I still love doing this.
I am getting close to 1900 images online and here are a couple of new ones.

About me

Art has always been a part of my life. Photography was a natural part of the evolution. I have a closet full of cameras and lenses, including a 3D camera. All of which are gathering dust since digital cameras came along and changed the world. For the past 10+ years I have been trying to learn all I can about post production and digital art. Even after all these years, I know I have not even begun to scratch the surface of all there is to know. And so, the journey continues.
