$30,000 Milestone

posted on 24th of july, 2015

Hi everyone
I've just passed a significant milestone : $30,000 in Total Earnings.

My Statistics as of today (24th July 2015) are:

Total Earnings: $30,004.04
Total Sales: 21,799
Uploads: 7252
Acceptance Ratio: 84.6%

I have recently made a large number of sales of wildlife images taken in Botswana.
I presume they have all been purchased by the same buyer.
So far, in the last 2 weeks, I've made 221 sales from wildlife images of Botswana !

A couple of weeks back I also made 44 sales of travel images of Myanmar (Burma), all within a 48 hour period, again purchased by one buyer, I think.

Bulk sales like this are great and really do boost your figures.

Onwards now to the next big milestone....

Hi Steve, thanks for your response! I guess shooting video requires a different mindset, along with some possible extra equipment (eyecup, tripod) but will open up additional potential uses on the same subject being photographed - so where we normally shoot landscape and portrait shape to increase saleability we now should think about shooting video too, if possible.

Hi Ian Made video 3 sales in the last 6 months on DT. The same clips are also on 3 other sites (non-exclusive) and they have also sold 5 or 6 times. Total income from all my video clips is so far around $200. Compared to my still image sales this is not a lot, but worth having nonetheless.

Hi Steve, how are you finding the video/movie clips are selling? Are they worth your while creating? Thanks, Ian

About me

I was a professional Industrial / Commercial photographer for over 26 years, before leaving commissioned work to become a full-time Stock Photographer. I first started shooting stock in 1972 as a supplement to my commissioned work, however, since early 2001 my entire income has come from shooting Stock images. I now have just over 100,000 image placements in my current multi-agency portfolio. Most of my income comes from the range of mainstream agencies I submit to. The 22 microstock sites I submit to now produce about 30% of my total income. Dreamstime sales account for abo... [Read more]
