It's been a year since starting on our Microstock agency and it been hard work and a pretty steep learning cure and but the last 3 months we have hit $1000 each month from around 1800 images and I just wanted to get some feed back on if this is normal good or bad...

Yeah, thats pretty good, depending on how many agencies you are submitting too. But if you got your images with the top 4 agencies, 1000$ is what you can expect.

Without knowing your portfolio, it's kind of hard to judge.

Hang around for a while and you'll get some idea.

For only one year that is rocking! Just think if you continue at this pace in just five years you will make a very decent living!  8)

Do you have a microstock agency?

Or you contribute to agencies? If so, what agencies are carrying your photos? Shutterstock, Istock, Fotolia?

Some people have a thousand images and they upload to 10 agencies, other person could have the same amount of images but is just uploading to only 1 agency.

So it does make a difference.

Hopefully the poster isn't a primary English language speaker, and he doesn't realize that name is offensive.

Only in the United States is "Sambo" offensive, and only for historical reasons.

The matter should never have been brought up on this thread.

It really doesn't take much to veer off the path on this site- once again the numbers are impressive for only one year in the business! I am jealous  8)

That's what I was thinking of was the Russian jiu-jitsu. I guess I watch too much MMA.

Sambo, the name in Ecuador for cucurbita ficifolia, a type of gourd
Sambo, a romanized term for the three ancestral treasures of Chinese culture
Sambo, Irish and Australian slang term for sandwich

One word many different meanings

Well, in the United States, it's about the same as using the n-word. If someone had used that for their user name, I could see someone else not liking it.

well the world is not the united states. this is nothing more than the side ill effects of political correctness from the perspective of one person. one thing for sure in the united states you are bound to offend somebody most of the time.

We're not posting in Spanish, Chinese, German, Italian or another other language but English. In English, it's a racial slur no matter how many of you want to put a minus on it. I'm not saying the poster did it on purpose. In fact, I pointed out it was an accident. But you all want to take it even further than that and bend over backwards to make it OK. All I'm saying is I can understand how it could upset someone. It's not a matter of political correctness. I welcome you to go to Atlanta and call a black person that name and see what happens to you.

Why don't we have a rendezvous (french word) in Australia where they speak ENGLISH and we can sit down over a sambo and a tinny and we can discuss how the USA is the pivotal center of the English speaking world and how every word that is in use there is null and void elsewhere especially if it is in other languages and/or could possibly have different meanings rather than the American English version. I hope the use of a french word here is allowed in the English speaking forum. Have a great weekend and breath...

I had never even heard of it until this thread, and I highly doubt it's in the same category of words as the n-word here in the US.

There's even a restaurant with the name in California. If it were equal to the n-word, I'd expect some pretty negative press and an angry mob outside the restaurant.

I guess your much younger than I imagined EmberMike. Although at one time before the negative connotation later associated with the word, there was a chain of Sambo's restaurants.

Do you spend your time examining everyone's user name and trying to work out if someone, somewhere could possibly take offence from it?

I've read that 'robhainer' was a disgusting slur in the Aztec language. Feel free to Google it.

Well, a word is never offensive.
It is the sense that you give to it to be offensive
It is the person using it in an offensive way to be offensive


I didn't make it up. Feel free to google it.

And if I prefer to duckduckgo it?

I think 1000 dollars a month with 1800 images after one year is very good. Especially because you are probably still climbing through the ranks of the various royalty systems. Once you reach higher levels (gold,ruby,emerald..whatever...) your income will increase even more. You should definitely continue doing stock, there are many people coming in who are earning much less than you with 1800 images.

Well done - yes, that is good for most people. The key element though, is did you have high production costs for your 1800 pics? Keep refining and cutting these down where possible to maximize your profit.
