Sorry, but I had to share, so excited! I am my own worst critic (as I'm sure you can all relate to), but I had some good friends put some extreme peer pressure on me to offer prints for sale. Lo and behold, last week I sold my first two. Sorry, far from pro, but I had no idea where else to celebrate! Thanks for reading.

here's my site:

Congrats !! You have some very nice work on your site.

Great work! It can be rough when you strive for "technical perfection"... I keep seeing a theme when many of the old timers who have made a profession selling prints talk about image quality, output sharpening, etc... when put in front of 99% of the buyers... they will seemingly gravitate to the work you spent the least amount of time perfecting. Only 1% of the buyers ever really consider it.

I too am just starting out. I have taken the above to heart and know that my career is a perpetual process of improvement. Get better with each image, but get your work out there now.

You might want to consider a watermark. There is no "right click " protection.

Just make sure you pay the sales tax to your state. It is easier to beat a murder wrap than it is to beat the taxman.

Hi guys Just checking in. I've sold more prints than I would have expected when I first started this venture. Certainly not enough to live on, but enough that my confidence is boosted and I'm encouraged to get even more serious.

A friend of my girlfriend asked for the green tree python and starfish as prints for a charity art auction, with the proceeds going to pre-natal care for impoverished Indians (one of the charities she works for). Both of them sold!
