I am new to photography.  Looks like microstock is the perfect place to make some real cash! I will get my new canon from walmart and start shooting objects on the table- simple yet will make some real bank! Love it!

Are you the Jack Nicholson kind of joker, or the Heath Ledger kind?

Heath Ledger for sure.

Based on your rank you would be either the mayor or Batman of Gotham on this site.

You reminded me the good old days when I started microstock in 2007.

Good luck!

Not sure if Joker is a troll or is just a decade behind the times.

Shoot tomatoes.  I hear the agencies need more tomatoes.

here's my profile of the ideal new photographer to microstock, who wants to make it...

- independent source of revenue (essential for buying food and valium) Or living where it costs less than $20/day
- years of spare time looking forwards
- large supply of spare F5 keys for the keyboard
- nice thick skin
- posesssing a sturdy umbrella to keep off unpleasant things that will get dumped from above regularly
 - a bottomless pit of optimism and ambition
 - wide variety of photogenic models willing to work for nothing but a thank you
- computer geek
 - happy to take on large debts on the vague understanding of a return on the investment at some far distant time
 - low self esteem (willing to be treated as an insignificant member of a vast worldwide horde of co-contributors having no more importance than a single bacteria to those who hold your so-called career in their hands).

Funny, not a lot to do with being a half decent photographer in my list, I suppose that it can't do much harm.  :-\

Heath Ledger is awesome (for a dead guy).

Really, all you have to do is develop a port like Sean has and you are in the major "Cha-ching" if you know what I mean  ;)

If you manage your time well on the weekends and evenings you should be there before you know it.

Heck, TWO out of ten?!? Are you kidding me? That is TWICE as good as you need to be.

Go get 'em tiger.

Green Machine I give you a plus! May goal is to make around $35K (USD) a year- I think that is doable or most folks would be gone from this business right?
