My best selling image

posted on 23rd of august, 2011

I worked for a business newspaper for almost three years. One day, I was shooting a boring conference in a tiny, but crowded room in an office building. The conference lasted for about 2 hours, but I got really really bored in the first half an hour.
So I got out, having nothing to do but waiting for the driver to come pick us up. Instead of just doing nothing, I started playing around with the camera. I also took 5 shots with the front door of the meeting room, where the conference was still in progress.

I was just playing, but the best shot with the front door turned out to be my best selling photo on Dreamstime. 122 downloads and counting. Oh wait, another one! 123 downloads and counting.

Seems like in photography any occasion can be a good occasion.
Here's the photo:

Thanks everybody! Don't forget to WRITE YOURS! @Keith: well, my assignment was different and pretty clear that day, and my contract was not exclusive, but long story short - the company went bankrupt and the newspaper was closed, so even if I had an exclusive contract (which I didn't), "they" don't exist anymore...

Great photo!

Very cool... just as long as the newspaper doesn't consider the photo their property since you were working for them at the time.

About me

Never in my life had I thought I would become a photographer... It all started as a small business, in a small town, for small money. I bought my first (small) camera to shoot graduation portraits in high schools. But then, having a digital camera, I took it anywhere with me, and shot everything I saw. This is how the passion grew on me. Photography soon became my passion, my job, my life. The passion got bigger, the camera got bigger, and the money also (because I never forgot about the business factor). Finding my passion and making money from it led to a beaut... [Read more]
