First of all, sorry for my bad english :)
I am on DT since 2009, but I had only 30 images online for 2 years.
I earned very small money and 2 month ago I decided to be more active on the site so I became excluse . I've uploaded several images, mostly about dogs, sharpeis.
Now I have 109 imagees online, had 33 total sales. Last 2 sales (P-EL sales) doubled my earnings and now I have 97,44$. I am very happy with it.
What do you think, is it possible to be successful with mainly dog photos with sharpeis?
I try to make diffrent type of pictures but I have a very simple equipment, yet :o)
I want to say big thank you for somebody, who bought 16 images today in 10 minutes from my sharpei collection. It took me soo-sooo happy. Many new pictures about the wrinkled beauties coming very soon and day by day :)
The simple answer is yes it is possible to be successful with mainly dog photos of Sharpeis if Dreamstime used a market-based evaluation mechanism instead of editors - soon enough some editor will say "you have too many similar photos in your portfolio" and not let you upload anymore. Although the editors are very inconsistent with this, sometimes they let me upload 20 related images other times stop me after 2 - there is no consistency. But if your market keep buying I think they should let you keep uploading. And I rather like Sharpei dogs, so here's hoping they do.
I think it's possible to be successful with every excellent image, like yours :) And I don't think there are so many good images of sharpei dogs around... Congratulations, and good luck for future sales!
