100th Image Sold

posted on 10th of november, 2010

With a full year behind me and many learning's obtained on stock photography through the Dreamstime community, I have reached my first sales milestone of 100 images.

It was a slow beginning for me, accumulating only 26 sales in the first 9 months, but I am now starting to get the hang of it and in the last couple of months I am averaging about one sale per day on my relatively small portfolio of 147 images.

I wanted to share this milestone with you and let you know how much I have enjoyed the Dreamstime experience thus far. Although at times I have found it frustrating with submission rejections, reaching a number of firsts along the way keeps you motivated. These included my first TIFF, W-EL ($25.42) and level 2 image.

Thanks to all for the experience and here is the image that was number 100.
