Sold my first picture

Sold my first printed photo this weekend. A photo of a horse commended in a local competition. The owner of the horse bought the photo for 40. After having taken pictures for around 3 months this is a massive motivation for me. Yesterday I was booked to take pictures of the other horses at the same yard. I'm very happy with this.

Brilliant. It is so good when others enjoy our photography so much so as to pay us money for it!
I still re,member the thrill of seeing my first published photo, in Photo News Weekly, some of the mature members may remember it, a good read at the time. I got 10/6d for it, 521/2 P.

Congratulations Radar. What printer do you use and what was the size of the photograph? I hope you don't mind me asking.John R.

Thanks for info I asked as I do print some of my own and the quality is not that good I am also thinking of Canvase prints http://www.fluid-images.co.uk/prices...ain_page=index.
I would like to see your photo of the Horse is it in your Gallery?
Thanks again John R.

Hi Radar.
I did have a look at the photo on flickr/.com I see you concentrated on the face and eye a very tight crop. I should imagine that the owner appreciated it
it has a very different aspect. thanks for posting JohnR.
