More Money

The cheques keep on coming in. I received my second today, for $213. My plan before was to keep a small balance on my Istockphoto.com account just so that I would always be able to make a payment request, but it seems like the balance rises fast enough that it will probably never be too big of a wait before I can request another cheque.

Looking at my sales graphs, it seems as if my monthly istock sales are rapidly approaching 10% of what I'm getting paid for my day job. That says to me that I need to quickly shoot another 1800 half decent photos to add to my meager 200, then I'll really be laughing.

My spreadsheet suggests that at the rate I'm going it will be four more years before I even hit 1000. I guess I need to step things up a little.

The real problem isn't so much shooting the pictures as much as coming up with ideas of what to shoot. The ideas are the real hard part.

Hey Gary, pleased to see you're having some success with iStockPhoto. I am too, especially since I found the other microstock websites. I've created a blog on selling photos online where I put as much information as I can, tailored for people such as yourself. I'll keep an eye on your blog for updates on your success!
