My First $200

posted on 13th of february, 2012

I joined Dreastime in the early March 2011. Though genuinely interested in photography, I had never thought that I would do something called STOCK photography. I still do not know what I do can be called strictly stock photos.

Time was very difficult. first two months were with only uploads and no sales. It was in the third month that I got my first sale, a subscription sale (but yeah I was thrilled though it was only worth 42c)..

I was wondering whether the time I was investing in this is really worth it. The next month gave in slightly better with 2 sales but again subscription sales. After 4 months, I was at DT with just $1.36. Things were pretty hard and I was eligible for Exclusivity.

Congrats...I joined in July 2011 and have a total of five sales to this point. I get frustrated sometimes...but read the posts and take others advice and just keep trying to diversify and post. Thanks so much for sharing!

Congratulations. I am looking forward to hearing about your first 500 dollars! I really like the photo of a girl in a boat with the water jug. It is a very beautiful, peaceful image.

Milestone: 200th Image Online

posted on 18th of february, 2012

Close to a week back, I added a milestone blog entry to let the world know that I earned my first $200 here at DT.

This blog has 2 things in common with the previous post: This blog is also on a new milestone, and again has 200 involved.

Got just over 200 saleable images in my portfolio (few are there in the Free section which cannot be counted).

This is my 200th image. I guess I need to take a coffee and think through on how the rest of the images should be.. :)

Thank You all....
