Back with new stuff again...

How my dog photography has grown in quality with Dreamstime

Hi everyone, since I am a Dreamstimer I submitted a lot of my dog photography with tips on how to take decent shots on non cooperative models such as dogs... and I have to say, each refusal note was teaching me to perform better shots me too... This was one of my first, but on adult dogs it's easier: they're teached to stay and more collaborative.

Hi Dreamstimers,here I am again. With great surprise I found that one of my pictures has sold 3 times in the last two weeks:  And here it is... so I asked myself... the world of stock photography has a really huge collection of images depicting pets and animals in general, so what is the reason it sells so well and this market seems not to have a decline?I answered myself: pets are today the most interesting market in the whole world.
