Hi marb67, I think your sales will increase as you build your portfolio, at least mine did. You have a lot of mice shots in your portfolio so I think you will do good here. Sales for me have built slowly as I build my portfolio but I have noticed that corporate business related photos do sell the best. Good luck with your sales.

It all depends on your budget, but I would go for a DSLR, either Nikon (or Canon) and preferably with more than just the budget kit lens. The Nikon D600, D5200, or the D7100 will be wonderful and give hours of pleasure and tonnes of great photo quality. Why those two, proven performance, ability to get great glass even second hand, tons of add on extra’s. Others will disagree of course, but that is the nature of it all

I agree. If you are low on budget though, you could get the D3200 (or even the D3100) but I would recommend the D5100. Canon 550D is also great. If you are not on budget, the D7100! But go in a shop and get a hands on experience before you decide. Don’t just rush into buying one!

On the Canon / Nikon debate I would recommend to you to buy the one that most of your friends have so that you can borrow their lenses until you can afford to get yours :)

All the above is very good advice. I started out with a Canon T3i/600D with the lens kit and later invested in L-series lenses. I haven’t ever used a Nikon so have nothing bad to say about them, but for me, the “flip out display that rotates” feature of the T3i is something that I had to have. So I would say to research features and see what would be best for you and what you will be shooting and maybe price future lens purchases to see if one brand fits your budget better than the other. Good Luck with your business :)

My Earnings Page shows that the sales and $ amount totals for March are both wrong but the rest of the months are correct…..hmm.

but I did notice that there are Photoshop Add-ons showing up in the Illustrator Add-ons category.

Hi Jenni, are you referring to one specific item, or multiple items?

If it’s one of yours, an alternative is to go to the item’s page Edit tab, edit or add a tag, and simply leave a quick note to the reviewer explaining that the item is in the wrong category.

For general items in the wrong category, please contact support and they’ll be glad to assist.

One Item was mine, I edited a tag and left a note for the reviewer but I also noticed 2 other items in the wrong category as well. I’ll send the links to support through a ticket and let them know.

My main page shows up fine, but I did notice that there are Photoshop Add-ons showing up in the Illustrator Add-ons category. Just weird, maybe they are working on the website?

If reviewers had a checklist based on guidelines, they’d all find exactly the same problems, and if we had this list, we’d submit the problems less often. Just my thoughts.

I agree 100%, it would be nice to know what the policies and guidelines are for each category.

You are not alone, I uploaded 5 days ago and they are stuck at about 80% and haven’t made any progress in a few days.
