Happy New Year!!!

First of all, I wish everyone a very happy and creative New Year. Personally, 2015 was a year with a lot of ups and downs for me, but I'm certain that 2016 will have more ups in it, than it will have downs. To begin, I'm going to take some classes in evening education to improve on photoshop skills. And from September 2016, I'll start with a 3 years class on photography. This to get my degree on it as I always wanted.In between classes, I'm going to continue with making stocks off course.... continue reading

Finally 150 items online!!

Today is the day I finally got 150 images online.That makes me happy and hungry to upload more, but it took me a couple of months to get this far.As said before, mostly because of my fathers medical problems, but also because of a lot of refusals (most of them because of illustrations I made and/or vector files I uploaded and some diffulties with finding correct keywords) ... I'm trying to learn the designing software Inkscape, but find it rather difficult. I have less problems understanding... continue reading

It's been a while

It's been a while since my last upload, but because my fathers health isn't the best since his illness this summer. He had a near death experience because of a very rare side effect due the medication he needs to take for his rheumatoid arthritis.That in combination with my work, some planned photoshoots (non-stock) and editing makes it difficult to even find time to sleep or go out on a stockphoto spree.But I'm back again, and had some new inspiration to. I'm only going... continue reading
