One of the good days

Today is one of those days that only comes round very rarely. Once in a blue moon as my parents used to say. Total sales for the day are a cool $200. Why? Three very nice sizeable sales!

First Shutterstock with a pretty boring shot I took in the English Lake District on a cloudy day for $69.81:

Hardly a fine art print, I’m afraid! But then Alamy came in with a sale at $89 gross which netted me $44.50


Now I think that is quite nicely taken with a wooden US flag in the background and my slate cheese board for the foreground. Those 20 year old empty bottles of Oxycodone that I think I got from the dentist have been pretty profitable for me. The tablets – who knows? Aspirin I think!

And now I just checked the days results on Microstockr Pro to see what has sold and I see another single sale for $22.90:

Now I do like this one – taken last spring at Lake Tahoe in California. I wrote about finding this spot in an earlier post about how to get the best shots on a vacation – proved I was right!

There is no doubt that there is a lot of luck and variability in the stock game – especially with the higher value licenses, but if you don’t have the images there, you will never sell them! Good luck with your own images!

There must be something in the atmosphere as I had a great sale on alamy for $138 of a grab shot I managed while shooting for a government digital magazine. This was an image of a properly dressed factory worker cutting up metal parts in a booth. Sparks flying everywhere. The down side is that I have to wait 4 months for payment.

Very good day for you. My regards.

Wow, what a day!! May many more of those come for you!
Love the last picture btw!!!

Lucky man! I also had a 100.00 US sale on Alamy- Brazilian cheese bread with coffee that made me happy!

[…] the highlights? Well, some really nice big single sales on Shutterstock. I talked about one of the good days early in the month when I had combined sales of $200, but then I had two other days in the month where I almost hit that total. One was due to two sales […]
