1st sale!

posted on 4th of march, 2013

Hello everyone,

Lately, I just made my 1st sale on Dreamstime, about a month after I uploaded my first pictures on the site. I just got 0.35$ richer! 35 cents is not much, but to know that someone found my picture and thought it could be useful in some way is just a great feeling. That is one reason why I chose to try to sell stock photos: to do something with my pictures more interesting than just leaving them inside my hard drive. Of course I hope in a few years I'll be able to get a nice little income with my portfolio, but until then, to see that I get views on my pictures and to see that the downloads started is only making me more impatient to go out there, shoot and post-process. I now have a goal when I carry my camera.

I can't wait to see what happens next!

Have a good day!

Thanks to everyone! Clearvista, you are so right. I am already hooked! Since I'm a contributor, everytime I go out with my camera I'm thinking ''stock''. How could I make this trekking trip stock oriented? Or this birthday party? Or this visit to the local shop? It's amazing how attention and focus to your surroundings change when you know what you are looking for.
