Key Financial Milestone Achieved

posted on 28th of july, 2011

After much time and learnings on Dreamstime, I have managed to achieve a key milestone of $500 in sales. Currently, as a part time photographer, i have a fairly small portfolio of 163 uploads totalling 286 sales.

My top selling image is:

Each small achievement has been very satisfying (in-between the many image rejections) and looking back it is hard to believe how much I have learned along the way courtesy of Dreamstime and it's community. Things like editorial images and copyrighted buildings and sculptures etc to name just a couple, were all new learnings for me as I entered the stock arena.

With 6 level 3 images and 15 level 2, i am looking forward to reaching my first level 4.

Thank you to both Dreamstime and the overall Dreamstime community for my continuing education.
