I’ve Sold My First Print – Come to Me – Black and White

Come to Me

This image makes me very happy..

Why you might ask?

Well for one I really like it, and for two a complete stranger from Pennsylvania in the USA messaged me and asked to buy a print.

John C in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania here. Would you care to sell a print of your Come To Me image, or perhaps sell me the use of the file so that I may print it? It’s a great image, in my view, and I’d like to display a print.

Do you have the means of printing monochrome?

Many thanks,


As I explained I can’t provide a print in Malaysia, I agreed to sell him the Jpegs for print for personal use.

He paid up front and I have sent him the files, he has said he will send me a picture of the print hanging in his house when he’s printed and framed it.

He seems very happy with the transaction.

This is my first real print sale, my first overseas sale, and my first real accolade.

I guess I can be proud now.

I hope this is the first of many to come, although I still don’t really believe anyone wants to buy my pictures..just a fluke!

Or perhaps not….a book one day? Haha.

    i think you can make a gallery on your site. and from there, peoples can see all the pics and maybe you can make more money from it.

    good luck! 🙂

    And a very nice photo it is!

    As a budding photographer, it’s shots like this that make me very insecure of my own photography skills 🙂

    Keep up the good shots man!
