I think you are on the right track...


Not even close.

She was trying to offer encouragement.

Martha... I completely understand that. Sometimes the truth needs to be said even if it is a bitter pill to swallow. There is a clear reason why none of their 700+ images sell.
haha, what's funny is that usually it's me being brutally honest. I was indeed trying to be encouraging, cos I remember what it like to be a newbie. We all started out shooting the easy, dumb stuff, it's part of the process.
Luckily a few years ago you could get away with that and earn enough to be encouraged. I don't think some one like me who is reasonably competent  and not prepared to work 70 hrs a week could ever get off the ground now.

One look at the portfolio and the customer knows this is not someone who took pictures with the buyer in mind.

You have to think of the buyer first, make a mood board of what you want to shoot, then research what is already available and at what quality level, then go out and shoot something much better or with a new idea.

The more effort you put into planning your shots, the more money you make.

stock is not a photohobby plattform chasing likes and hearts, it is a business.

Your portfolio has bad descriptions and keywords, it is also not organized by themes.

If you put no effort into it, why should anyone give you money?

Your type of images can easily be downloaded for free on the many free sharing sites.

At a commercial stock site, customers will only download what is useful and 0nly bookmark artists that make an effort.

Im sorry But, you asked and Im not One to blow smoke. your Port has very little Interest My friend. Nothing that goes wow Or even close to it.. exposure is Poor, subjects are Poor, Nothing makes me want to see More. besides all that you have a LOT of duplicates.......WHY? they Do Not help you In any way. they hurt your Port and I Blame the reviewers 100% for accepting 90%. Your simply Just Taking pictures that anyone can do. You Need to make Photographs that can be used to Help sell a Product,service Or Idea.
I don't see that happening. sorry.
