General Stock Discussion / Re: New Mirrorless Camera

I tested the Canon R and RP. Did not love either but the R5 has been amazing! It is always so sharp and the eye focus is the best feature. The RP has that feature too but I found the menu and other options hard to get to/work with.

That was such a nice surprise today. Thank you!

I had 39 the first time and 55 the second time so I am happy for those numbers :)

I have an R5 but I have not used it for video yet. I need to find a good monopod or tripod for that. I just use it for portraits. I love it though!

I just got the separate remittance but no per image info available yet. About the same as last month...just a few $ more.

I have a separate bank account, paypal and credit card for my business. I keep everything separate. My accountant does my business taxes first and then later I do my personal ones with that information and my spouse's data. I have been an LLC for a long time...over 10 years. I originally did it not only to keep things separate but for liability's sake. I am incorporated in my home state and I would suggest doing that. I incorporated with an attorney's help. I do have to pay a filing fee every year for this.

Mine is an LLC as I am a portrait photographer and this is just a side gig so I just incorporate this income into my shopping cart system and it is categorized by stock and per agency each month.  I pay taxes on it just as I do the other income.

I just reached level 4 for Shutterstock but January was the best month I have ever had with Adobe. A great month makes me want to shoot more content.

So my January downloads are up 81% over last January (I have added to my portfolio) but my sales are only up 6% from last January :(

I am probably 2 weeks away from level 3. I hope January is a good month for sales #'s

Thank you so much for your data and graph and I am impressed you have done so well over the years and grown your portfolio and sales. I always appreciate seeing what sells for people as sometimes it makes me rethink things like angles, topics and vantages.
