Nice. What's the landscape shot the agency bought?

I bet it's the one with the boat, the bridge and the city in the background (that composition!)

Thanks! It's another bridge in the fog shot... I swear that literally thousands of people have taken similar shots. But hey, I'm not complaining.

Congrats! I wish I had the time or energy to set it up, but teaching rather takes the joy out of going out to take photos (realizing you have to get up early again next day, or check work)

While I consider myself a professional at this point, regularly shooting events and weddings, it's not something I can make a living wage with, yet (?). Perhaps this is because my main subjects are wildlife and landscapes, not exactly the money-making kind of shots.

I sell my wildlife and landscape shots through stock photo agencies after being actively recruited by them. The secret to stock photography success appears to be quality as well as quantity, and with only a few dozen shots out there, I'm not set up for any kind of profit at all. I get a commission on every shot sold. Usually my cut under a dollar per sale. I make about $90 from it every 3 months.

Until today! When some ad agency picked up one of my landscape shots for a ridiculously high price. My cut could buy me a decent used car, meaning they paid even more. Which makes me wonder if it wouldn't be cheaper to just send a photographer out on a plane to and take the shot on location themselves.

Anyway, keep on shooting, keep on getting better, keep learning, keep on getting your work out there, keep investing in the right gear (sadly I consider that essential) and even though it may seem that everyone's a photographer these days, it can still pay off!

(Check out my work here!)
Well done! Also you're so lucky to be in San Fran where it's overflowing with wildlife.

It is very difficult to make money from your work, especially when entry level dslr etc are so much more accessible to own and people think that because you take photos on an expensive camera you don't need the skills of an actual experienced photographer. So photographers aren't valued for their work.

I'm so impressed with your hummingbird shots, they're such speedy little things I only got 1 single shot when I was on holiday before they just disappear.

Favourite shots you've taken this year? These are two I'm particularly fond of

Nice idea, Ro - it's a little bit late now, but this is probably my favourite shot from last year...



Apart from that, I'd probably say these too, though I didn't take that many for most of the year really...







I'm pretty happy with my start to 2017 so far too - this was taken on New Year's Day...



I'm a sucker for sunsets and reflections so I was pretty excited to get the chance to snap both together, haha!
