Just got some sales just a few days in to this month. And my portfolio increases almost everyday.
Its the old stock photo trick = "Never-let-the-upload-queue-be-empty". Always have images in the review queue. Never stop uploading :) keep on fighting.
Why should you always have images in the queue?
Because some of you images WILL get rejected and therefore you should different version of it in the queue. The images you have taken may be well covered on the site, thats why you should be unique in your shooting style and angels etc. Try something new. Never be put of by rejections, its a GREAT way to learn that the agencies are looking for. Never loose your sprite, keep on shooting :).
Second reason: why you should always have images ready is to grow your portfolio.
The more images you have in you...
