  1. Thomas, do a lot of your nature images sell? Should I be posting more landscape or vertical photos of nature? I recently submitted pics here in the Pacific Northwest and wanted to experiment with them to see how they do. So far no luck.
  2. Wow -- didn't know this happened. I was wondering why most of my images were getting accepted where as before it was a bit more difficult.
  3. I'd like to slow down on uploading photos and work on promoting photos more. What do you do to promote your portfolios? I started posting to Twitter and Pinterest, and I started a blog draft about stock photography to post on my website. What works for you? I know that people won't buy my photos if I don't get them out there in front of their faces. But, I also don't want to come across as spammy.
  4. Do you suggest using the max keywords? I struggle to fill out to the max, but I'm doing better now than when I first started.
  5. Great portfolio! I dream of the day of taking photos like you. I'm too cheap to buy new equipment, though.
  6. Hi! I've been into stock photos for two years now, but I will go in phases as far as uploading. I will upload a batch, then forget about them for a while, then come back, upload more, etc. I was wondering what your strategy is for uploading photos. I don't want to just post a few and then not return for a few months. I'd like to stay consistent. Do you have a goal for uploading, like 5 a week for example? I feel that if I at least get 5 a week up (which is probably a low number to many) at least that's decent vs. none for several months. My problem is I get really excited about it, upload a bunch at one time and then get burned out on it because of all of the keywords, descriptions, etc. I am getting sales on my images on three different stock sites.Thoughts?
  7. Yes, I've come a long way in 10 years when it comes to photography, and still have a lot to learn. I look back at photos I took a while back and think about how terrible they look and at the time I thought they were great! Maybe that means in another 5-10 years they will be even better. Photography is one of my hobbies and if I can make a little passive income from it, that's great.
  8. I also disagree somewhat. Honestly, the images that sell the most for me are the ones I always second guess myself on posting. The images that I feel will sell less sell the most, and the ones I think will be awesome end up with 0-low sales.
  9. I think I'll just err on the side of caution and pass on these images. Thanks for the responses!
  10. I have some photos I'd love to upload taken at theme parks. Are these types of photos allowed? Any types of special things I need to do to categorize them correctly? Pictures include Disney World, Legoland, Universal Studios, etc. Thanks!
  11. I'd like to add that I think it's good to upload anyway. The reason being that my first 3 sales were images that I thought weren't that great, but apparently others found them appealing. What you may think is not so great could be what someone else wants to buy! My first sale was actually a photo that I almost deleted because it was just so random.
  12. That's too bad! I was excited about that feature!
  13. Hi! I'm trying to authorize Shuttertweet and it keeps taking me to a page that says:"Something's amiss! We can't find what you're looking for right now." I tried to contact them and even that bounced back. Anyone else have issues with this?
