Hi,

Just wanted to introduce myself to the group.  Name is Jean and I am from Ottawa, Canada.  I've been doing stock photography as a hobby since the summer of 2012. 

I have uploaded to all the top and middle tier sites as well as a number of low earner sites.  I'm working on adding more to my portfolio, but more importantly, trying to improve the quality of my shots.  So far I've had good results with SS and sales everywhere else, but not to the extent of SS. 

I have stopped in to this forum as few times as a guest, but have signed up recently.  Any advice or thoughts, etc from the vets would be appreciated!

Cheers,

Jean

Hello and welcome.

Shoot, upload, repeat is old but good advice :) I took a quick look at your SS portfolio. I liked the Canada with sparklers shot - you could branch out with a few other messages perhaps. You have a pretty young woman in the set you labelled Fashion - I'd suggest doing more shots with her but doing something (versus just posing and looking) and dressed in a more businesslike way. Those shots will sell much better I think.

Thanks!
The Canada picture you mention is my best seller on SS both in terms of downloads and cash.  I have also sold some ELs for it too. 

The shots of the young woman (her name is Laurence) was done a photography meetup and was not a MS shoot, hence why it does not have a certain theme.   But it has received a few sales nonetheless. 

I will keep plugging away.
