500 images online - time to celebrate!

Two years ago, if someone would have told me that I will have half a thousand images online at Dreamstime - I would have said "No way".

Now the 500th picture has been accepted. Funny though that they're brick walls, because I never thought I would take pictures of them -because there are already thousands on DT. But mine are different - nicer - at least that's what I think ;)

I really haven't got much time for my photography but I take the time whenever I can - the issue always was: What reason do you have to take photos - whom do you want to show your pics - how can you make a bit of money out of it??? With microstock I did find a purpose and suddenly the learning curve skyrocketed - man did I know nothing and I thought I know it all! Honestly, I'm not getting rich with this (yet) but more and more often I receive my 100$ checks and can justify why I'm buying this gear or spending again time in the Botanic Gardens in Sydney. So everyone who thinks: What the heck am I going take photos in a year or so - believe me - there is always something and you can always try to do it better against that fantastic competition we have here on DT.

Martin, please, there is nothing to worry about! I am a big fan of your photography and I am sure I am not alone. Bricks are just a small part of your portfolio - which is all brilliant. I was very pleased to hear that you are doing so well. The numbers show it all - both the expanding portfolio and the number of your sales. Your success is an inspiration to other photographers. All the best! And keep us informed! :-)
