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.

Excited about this particular photo reaching level 3

posted on 17th of december, 2009

I'm so happy that this photo reached level 3. It gives me a great sense of pride not only because of the photo itself, but the fact that this meal was cooked by me!! :) I'll give you a bit of history of this meal. I've been cooking this meal for my wife and I for special events like her birthday and our anniversary ever since we've been going out in university. So the meal itself means a lot of me. This photo is specifically for our Third year wedding anniversary. This meal represents all the good times we shared over the years. Today the photo has reached level 3 and I'm very exited that not only has this photograph been acknowledged for it's photo merit but also for the food itself that I cooked.
