First year on Dreamstime

So, I've just hit a year on Dreamstime, and what a year it's been! After being exclusive on another agency for over 7 years, it was a huge decision for me to change over, but I have been most pleasantly surprised with the subsequent sales here for my first year.

I've really enjoyed getting to know the staff and fellow contributors on DT, it is a wonderful place to share and learn and a very happy community to be a part of.

I have no regrets whatsoever in making that big decision to change over, in all truth, I only wish I had moved across sooner!

If anyone is considering going exclusive, I highly recommend it - if one is to be exclusive anywhere, I feel this is the place to be.

Thanks Dreamstime, my first year has been a very positive experience and I am certainly looking forward to a great 2012!

Thanks for your 2 cents worth, Erik. The expression isn't actually "faked" - it wasn't taken for the purpose of this image, it was taken down at the beach and she was being goofy and making funny expressions, this was the result of one of them. This shot is actually a composite of five different images. I just loved the joy and surprise in her face and thought it would make a good image to promote reading in children. It got an Editor's Choice and is selling, so I'm happy :)

Hi Tamara.
Being a Pro demands attention to subtleties,be a pro,fake look on kid's face nono.
BTW I admire Your work and wish to have ten % of Your talent.
Sorry for mixed feedback,by all means Your work is delicious.
Let's see if I was not to much of an asshole .Easy to take kisses,but sometimes kicks ar more friendly and productive.Regards ,E.

Couldn't agree with you more Tamara. I chose to go exclusive, and although my portfolio is only a pinhead compared to yours, I am grateful and happy to be part of the Dreamstime community. Congratulations and I am sure your success will continue indefinitely as your work is outstanding.
