What was your first month earning?

Recommended Posts

$300 is obviously great for a first month so someone needed to bring the average down a bit...

 

My first month was April 06 with $6.25

October 2007 (29 days)

 

I have earned (meaning only Shutter):

$110.05

 

But I have to notice that I've started having 10 images. And they were my first experiences in this area.

Forgiss,,,

 

What are the differences?

 

Well, in one, you are starting in this industry called "microstock" just trying to get that first 10 approved, in another instance, you might have been selling for a few months allready, and just transfer your files here.

 

Nothing bad meant, just an observation:

 

My first month here (and for Microstock) was $33.61

 

By the second month I did $115.44

 

and by the end of the year I did $4,692.55 for the year.

 

Gotta love this game!!

I think what Sean is saying is that there are new photographers, like myself, who are low on the learning curve with their material. The quality of their work is nowhere near their potential.

 

Then there are photographers who are seasoned, perhaps with large Rights Managed portfolios or with significant success with other microstock agencies. These photographers will instantly be creating strong work in their first month with Shutterstock, and possibly be uploading a large batch of proven material from other agencies.

 

Big difference in the results of each group's first month.

 

My $53.80 is probably fairly representative of a photographer with about 2 months prior experience in microstock, and with limited overall experience in photography.
