Featured on Alamy and the journey of stock photography

I was totally shocked to see my work featured on Alamy’s blog this week, along some amazing photographers! I was featured already in the one section of their site, with a link to my work, and that was exciting and a boost to my self esteem already. 

I’m hoping these nightlights will also help to boost my sales a bit, but so far I’ve yet to make any money through Alamy, and very little through any other agencies I’ve worked with. Working with stock photography is not for the impatient or the faint of heart, which is why I’ve almost quit more than once.

Stock is not a get-rich-quick scheme and success won’t come to me over night but I’m going to keep submitting images because it’s better than leaving them unseen on the hard drive of my computer.
