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!
