Well I finally bit the bullet and submitted some photos to the stock photo agency Shutterstock for consideration.
And now I am as nervous as hell to see whether or not they are accepted.
The criteria are quite strict and the quality needs to be really good and I am just not sure the ten pictures they asked for as an initial submission are going to make the grade.
I shall be waiting on tenterhooks until the end of the week to see if any of them are accepted.
If they’re not, hopefully I will get some feedback on what I have to improve to make the grade.
As I’ve said before, this isn’t a get rich quick plan.
I was reading an article in a photographic magazine a couple of weeks ago and the author reckons he made about £1,200 a month from this one agency.
But he has been doing it for years, is a professional photographer and has a library of about 1,000 photos on the site.
This is yet another work in progress. We’ll see how it goes. Fingers are crossed.
Now today the light is perfect, it’s a beautiful day and I would love to grab my camera and head out into the wide blue yonder.
Sadly, despite it being my day off, I have to work.
Annual Performance Reviews are due at work. I have nine of them to do by Friday and I’ve done two so far so I’m working this morning to get some more out of the way. I also have dental appointments today and Friday afternoons so instead of having a day off today, I am having the afternoon off today and Friday.
And then I am off for two whole weeks woo hoo. Heading up to Man’s house on Friday and then we will come down here for the second week. I am so looking forward to it.
The gorgeous daughters and I visited their grandparents yesterday. It is good to be able to do that. We had little contact with them between my ex husband being released from prison and his death a couple of months ago.
It is good to be able to renew our relationship with them, even though it is through such sad circumstances.
My former father in law shares a birthday with daughter number one. They were glad to see us. I took some family photos, because we haven’t had any for three years. They all looked so happy.
And there is a minor bidding war on my latest eBay item. It is up to £5 with a full day left to go.
More money for the pot. It’s adding up slowly but surely.
