My first $1000

posted on 21st of january, 2012

It has been exactly 7 months since I jumped into microstock business with DT. Today I am happy to announce that I just made the first $1000 with 582 sales.

Alone with the $1000 revenue, there are a couple of other milestones achieved recently:

1) 4 images reached level 3;
2) 21 images reached level 2;
3) one SR-EL, one I-EL and a couple of TIFF sales;

My next milestone is 1000 sales - I hope to achieve that within the first year.

This is the last image sale that helped me reach this important financial milestone:

Dreamstime Photographer Jerryway,

I wanted to let you know I used your photo (Rainbow, Kauai Hawaii) in my new children’s book ‘Look Up’ recently out on Amazon. I thank you for your contribution to the book. I purchased the royalty-free photo through a subscription with Dreamstime. I wanted to send each photographer a copy of the book displaying their work but unfortunately with 71 photos used it is financially impossible for me to do so at this time. But I do not want your work to go unrecognized so I hope the book will bring people to Dreamstime to see the wonderful photos available there.

You can see more about ‘Look Up’ on my webpage


I hope it means as much to you as it does to me seeing your photo in the book and that you or someone you know will enjoy it!
