Last night I made my first sale!! It was exciting! I had been taking pictures in my daughter's classroom for the last year, covering events and such. Mostly for the yearbook for which I designed our class pages. I also gave out free CDs left and right to parents who asked, and we made a photo book as present for the teacher (he just became one and it was his first class). Nevertheless, I posted all the images on my website where I offered prints at a modest price (starting at 50c for a 4x6), and one mom now decided to place an order!

Congratulations, it may not be the money, but isn't it a great feeling that someone likes a photo you took that much that they're willing to pay for it... :smile:

Thanks!

It's official - you're now a Pro!

Hehe, if anything I learned to appreciate how long it takes to make a buck in the photo business...

Congrats! Its addictive.:biggrin:

At least it's a better addiction than NAS. :tongue:

Thanks! I still remember the first few bucks I made in my main profession (software). Back then I found it funny to get paid for what I enjoyed doing anyway and would happily do for free...
