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.
Got my first sale since deciding to making a better effort here on DT. The photo had only been online for less than 3 days and I dont think its been visible in search result for very many hours.
Its also my first exclusive image sale since I have removed all my photos from other stock photo agencies and turned all my photos here to exclusive. However still long way to getting those 50 uploads and applying for exclusive photographer status.
Currently 16 photos online and 20 waiting their judgment. Refused or accepted. Soon I know but the wait is killing me! :)
Currently 11 sales. Goals of 50 online and 25 sales are getting closer. :)
Got 10 more photos approved yesterday (3 rejected). Good ratio for me since I was at about 35% approval rare earlier but now I am more serious about this. :) I have 26 photos online now so really closing in on my 50 photos goal.
Still 7 photos waiting for approval, most of them older photos I found in my portfolio. Today gonna be a photo day since I need more photos for uploading, think I am gonna focusing on signs today which can be blanked and might have a commercial value. Such as the one below here.
I uploaded my first photos on DT in April last year and during the first year I basically had 10 photos here, getting 10 sales as well. During the last week I've increased my portfolio rapidly from 10 to 30 photos! Sales have only increased by 1 though but most of my new photos are maybe not yet fully indexed in the search engine. Gonna keep on uploading, 50 photos not far away now!
I actually have 10 accepted photos in a row now so confidence is peaking. :)
