At 5:25 am this morning I reached a milestone in my stock photography business. Today’s featured photo of school girls marked my 25,000th image sold from my portfolio on This now secures my spot as a diamond level contributor and maxes out my royalty percentage. Of the estimated 50,000 contributors on the site, less than 250 are diamond level.

It seems like just yesterday that I posted about the potential income possibility of selling mircrostock images. Now here I am a short ten months later making my living selling stock photography.

I’m all about setting goals and reaching them. My next sales goal? 50,000 images sold by the end of 2008.
