First foray into stock.

posted on 1st of july, 2010

I've only been a member for a few weeks, and only have 16 images online at the moment.

I'ts kind of an experiment really to find out what sells and to improve my photography and 3d work. The community seems really helpful, and i've picked up a lot of useful information so far!

I don't have any sales yet, and not even many views, but as Kevin Costner once said, 'if you upload them, they will come!', or something like that :)

Any advice and suggestions to improve my chances would be greatly appreciated!

Your images are good and will sell but allow about three months before sales begin to rise. If you keep uploading sales will grow exponentially in due course. David.

Hi Nat, welcome to DT. With the images in your portfolio currently, it won't be too long before the sales start rolling in. You'll get better advice from the seasoned pros at DT, but keyword thoughtfully, put yourself in the buyer's shoes, and have a look see at other photographers/illustrators portfolio to get an idea of what's in demand. Keep shooting, keep uploading, and above all have fun - Good Luck!
