Estatic about Reaching 1000 sales today!!!

posted on 4th of december, 2009

I joined Dreamstime October 29, 2007 thinking it would be fun to see if any of my photos are high enough quality for commercial purposes. When I sold my very first photo, I thought to myself. "Cool, I wonder if I will sell anymore." Now over 2 years later, I've finally reached 1000 sales. Never thought I would achieve this goal especially since I currently only have 214 photos in my portfolio. I'm so happy and actually kind of flattered that designers actually are buying my photos. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the buyers, all the members and admin staff that gave me advice and helped me along the way. I feel my photography skills have improved greatly because of Dreamstime and that in itself is the biggest award. Thanks again. Below is the photo that gave me 1000 sales. Cheers.

Hey Gumshoe and Jurphotography. You are still early. Just be persistent and it will pay off. I was in the same shoes before. Read some of my blogs on DT and hopefully they will help you. Cheers.

Congratulations. I'm also on the other end of the scale: a couple of months with DT, 20 images uploaded and I've earned $2.87. There's hope for me yet.

Thanks for all the congrats! This milestone is definitely encouraging me to try to take more photos to upload here in DT. Hopefully I can find more time to contribute more. Comment to all those just starting out. I think what has worked for me with my small portfolio size is contributing to DT's assignments. The assignment photos definitely allow designers to find my photos.
