Congratulations to “Photographer At Heart” who posted the first photo that has ever sold on adography.com. We are so happy that we are able to fill a need and we hope to use this success story as a proof of concept for potential advertisers. Thanks to Gail from TravelWows, who posted the want-ad and purchased the photo. Thanks also to Photographer At Heart who posted the photo that was sold and is a close friend of the site.
Background: Gail, from TravelWows, posted a want-ad asking for photos of “a 40ish mom in driver’s seat of a minivan shot from behind in an attitude of frustration and defeat”. Photographer At Heart posted the photo that Gail selected for her campaign. The photo sold for $20.
I also want to point out that $20 is very comparable in price to the same dimension photo on istockphoto.com. However, this photo was specially requested by Gail, since stock photography didn’t meet her needs.
