I think that right would be if you have some incomes to live. If you want to get money here, your photos should be really good. But, on the other hand try, we are living once)

im also new to stock photography and looks like it will be a tough journey to my target of 5000usd/month. i dont know how long will it take but i'll try. i am trying to understand what is needed and what can i offer best and what my workflow should be to be effective etc..

Lol if you gonna do this as a full time job you have to earn that money otherwise its not more than a hobby.
I have some friends making 8-13 grand/mont.

You must live in Bermuda or Switzerland.
Still, gross and net are two different things.
Also, it's much more difficult now for newbies to get established and for oldies to maintain their earnings.

8 13? yes big productuinb company with big portfolio like 20 30 k of super lifestyle maybe,,or video.
i bet everything you want the to earn more than 5000 a month are probably less than 50 micro stocker in the world.
i see my position in fotolia ranking and my earning per month...so i have an idea of this. maybe video is more lucrative, but again those who earn a loto spend also a lot to produce video.
and this will be even worst year after year with increasing contributor and millions of file every months added.

to earn 5000 net you need at least 9000 gross( considering you have zero expenses)....108000 dollar year...leaving aside the SOD sale...only with sub you need near 400000 download...not even yuri in the first year with zero competition manage to do this....right now you need a 1000 download month. starting from scratches it'0s impossible. the search engine are so *removed coarse language* up you really need time to see files, there is 100 million file and growing..thousand of contributor at the door.
you can live off photography but in many field diversifying and with talents and creativity. but microsotck is really over. it can be a good side revenue as in my case. rely only in micro it's impossible apart living in some country like ukraine russia poland or thailand...with cheap cost of production and plenty of models available for penny. in western world forget.

micro stock is a hobby. for some 100 contributor maybe a job but mostly is made of amateur or hobbyist. the quality reflects this and it will be always worst cause nobody pro will invest money in a losing game.

 ;D Lol... Tell me, please, what cost of living in Poland do you expect to make, I mean normal living? Base costs, not including models or travel tickets... How many $ would be enough for you, let's say in Warsaw?

cheap if you come from western world. or you think that polish photographer like to shoot much more than western....i travel as photographer...i slept in krakow one months in a modern apartment paying 22 euro day for example...food is dirty cheap...try to sleep in a modern apartment in paris...or rent a studio in warsaw and in paris.
i not even talk about ukraine and some part of russia.
you know the girl who clean my grandma apartment is from poland....and there are thousand...casue in poland they earn much much less. poland is not only warsaw, and many micro come from smaller cities.

in poland with 1000 euro you can live a good life...in france you don-t go out of home.
polish girl like 99% of eastern europe love being photographed so it-s pretty easy to find good people for lifestyle shot free or for cheap money. renting a studio in warsaw is cheap, in milan is 10 times more for example. i don-t even speak about cost of living. i go often in poland and i feel a king compared to where i live where a beefsteak cost 30 euro for example.

Good luck! Looks like you have no idea about the reality.
And to clarify - I come from a small town, now live in Warsaw for over 15 years... Please, don't tell me it's cheap and don't even compare with Ukraine. With full respect for my friends from that country.

is super cheap compared to europe...i don't know why u got upset...if you find expensive poland sweet don't go out your country you will starve...i travel poland many many times i know prices. is CHEAP.

https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/compare_cities.jsp?country1=United+Kingdom&country2=Poland&city1=Ipswich&city2=Chrzanow

here you can compare any price for different cities. poland is half the cost of living of middle town in uk.
ukraine i said is much much cheaper...but poland is much cheaper than any city in europe. in italy where i live there are thousand of people from poland assisting unhealthy people at home...do you think they come in italy cause they earn good money in poland_one work in my home. and what she earn here is much much more than what she earned in poland.
with 1000 euro you can live normal life. if you say no you are dreaming cause medium salary in poland is lower.

You would need around 1,782.09 (8,884.99zł) in Warsaw to maintain the same standard of life that you can have with 4,500.00 in London (assuming you rent in both cities). This calculation uses our Cost of Living Plus Rent Index to compare cost of living. This assumes net earnings (after income tax). You can change the amount in this calculation.

and we are talking about a good style of life, going out often restaurant and all.

You would need around 1,233.11 (40,814.27₴) in Kiev to maintain the same standard of life that you can have with 4,500.00 in London (assuming you rent in both cities). This calculation uses our Cost of Living Plus Rent Index to compare cost of living. This assumes net earnings (after income tax). You can change the amount in this calculation.

this is for kiev...consider that i spent a lot of time in kiev i tell you that with 1300 pound you live a very good life compared to london.

3 4 times less cost of living...include that in poland and ukraine taxes are much lower...in kiev is 18% to 23 %....in italy much more than 50% sometimes for high income....and you see how microastock is sustainable only in less rich country.

He makes $1 for every time you quote, double quote, and triple quote. So I guess he's a billionaire.
