Tag Archive: France


I have just read an interesting blog post from a stock photographer who randomly shares websites that have bought his photos and are displaying them within a news article or alike. I thought this was a brilliant idea and I would love to do this aswell with my stock photos 🙂

The latest find is a Yahoo Finance news article about student housing (?) in France and the author has used one of my Angers photos with empty streets:

Logements étudiants : ces villes où les loyers sont les moins chers

I had a whopping 38 sales during February 2015 on Zazzle which is pretty good considering that Christmas is definitely over. I am currently making an average of €100 per month on Zazzle which is way better than a year ago. I am still totally convinced that a royalty of 30% did not harm my earnings – I am definitely earning more with it and can only recommend it!

These are the sales from February 2015:

My vintage black and white photo products are becoming more and more popular, especially the postcards. The photos had been shot by my husband’s great-grandfather right after World War II.

My recent Zazzle Sales: July 2014

To be honest, I had dreaded July 2014. I had increased my royalty to 30% to most of my products and feared I might sell less. Guess what? That was not the case! It was such a good month that I took a huge step forward and set the royalty to ALL products to 30% for July 20th and it was the best thing I could do 🙂 I am so looking forward to the Christmas season!

Anyway, these are the 32 sales (5 of them are still pending but I am optimistic that they will turn green very soon!) from July 2014 on Zazzle:

Angers is a beautiful picturesque city in France.

We had been to Angers around Easter in 2012 and we like this town in the Loire Valley.

Obviously, William from Alvaton in KY also liked it and has bought this pretty post card:

This card features the beautiful garden inside the fortress. You should definitely stop by when you’ll ever be near!

William has earned me $0.08 in royalty. Thank you, William!
