Growing Your Portfolio

These are the thoughts of a new photographer at Dreamstime.

I have been with Dreamstime for nearly two years and would like to share from my own experiences establishing my portfolio.

When I started to build my portfolio at Dreamstime I found it often difficult to understand which images potential customers would be searching for. Besides keywords (maybe my next topic), I found that different compositions of the same subject often attracted more "views" and possibly translating into different and more customers.

The biggest advantage came when I extended my range of subjects and photographed subjects that I never thought of before.

This helped me to improve my photography and I also started to experiment with different compositions. Surprisingly I found that I enjoyed my photography more and thus provided customers with a bigger range of images.

Through this process I attracted more views and customers which led to better sales.

Overall this is a win-win situation for me.
