So I got put on the frontpage of iStockphoto and have been getting tons of emails letting me know that for the next week I'll be the "Photographer of the Week".

Kinda cool. I added a link to the screen capture I took of it. It's on the upper right hand side of the page. Gotta love the exposure.

I learned photography thru DPC and now it is my full time gig. Just starting the whole Stock thing, but will say that with a little effort and good keywords it starting to pay off.

After looking at your collection of photos on iStock I will have to guess that the old saying "Sex Sells" is holding true.

Big congrats!!!!!
I too heard about Istock through this site & I've never looked back. I'm working of making it my full time employment too.


PS. Nice portfolio on Istock..... I saw no sex there, just a little sexy here and there, and all tastefully done.

I like your port and Istock is I think the best Microstock model. Although I find their keywording method to be an absolute nightmare. If they offered paid keywording like dreamweaver does, I'd probably go exclusive with them.

Like BaldburT, I saw no sex stuff in your port. I think I know what the motive of the comment was but I wont feed the beast, pay it no mind.

Congrats Beau! I have an account on iStock and I've only uploaded two pics. Seeing your work and your success will hopefully inspire me to submit more of my own images.
