Not new here since I joined over a year ago to try to sell some of my photos. Got 10 photos accepted and over the first year I also had 10 sells but it was not an serious effort from me since I didnt regulary upload new images. Now I will change that. :)
I recently uploaded 12 photos and got 6 accepted, right now I have 18 photos waiting for review, hoping for a 50% approval there as well.
My first goals are:
- 50 uploaded photos to get the possibilty to become exclusive.
- Getting my first level 2 photo - 25 sells.
Which will I reach first?
Attaching my first photo accepted and also my most popular with currently 4 sells. The mountain hare portrait.
I see that you listed sports as one of your likes and have a couple of fishing lures in your portfolio. How about uploading pictures of anglers fishing, catching that big fish, etc. Another consideration is editorials. Marathons, cycling, etc - people and commercial shots. That may help achieve your goals. I agree about quality that sells being more important than quantity. Do what you love to do and have fun at it. Best of luck! :)
dont worry about the sales, once you have more content and they will come. Just be concerned about producing good quality images that have a market and dont let your feeling be hurt if you dont have something sell. I have shots that I absolutely thought would be a seller that took 2 years to get a sale.
