My first sale

posted on 7th of april, 2011

Well, the first milestone was getting images accepted and the second was to actually sell at least one image. When I signed on today I notice that I had indeed sold that first image 3 days ago.

I do not know if a sale from a portfolio of 22 is good or not - either way I do hope for many more over time and will try to not get to excited about one sale adding up to less that one dollar.

My acceptance ratio is now running at 62.9% so hopefully I should be in a good position to get many more images accepted.

The next milestone will be 50 images, after which I can consider wether or not to register as exclusive on the site.

About me

I have been taking photographs for many years. I started out with black and white film and a wet darkroom, and whilst I do miss that now I can also see the advantages of converting to digital. I believe that over those years the standard of my photography has improved which is why I have decided to begin submitting images to Dreamstime. I have many images which I am confident will be of the required standard, but I also have plenty of ideas for new images to create and/or find.
