I didn't believe it was possible

Some years ago, I was called by a microstock editor who wanted to have my pictures on his website. The guy wanted to pay me 15% of commission over the pictures sold. I really thought about it and asked him to explain me better about the structure of his image bank and how I should submit my images. The guy then explained me everything, saying that his website was only selling CDs of specific themes and all the images should be photographed using positive slides - I could not submit any digital image and I was shooting digital already.

I thought to myself: This guy is crazy. How can someone only accept slides and not digital images?

Well, I don't know if I was wrong or right, but I didn't submit any image because I didn't believe my images could be sold that way.

I forgot about microstock and this year I restart thinking about it.

Here I am, shooting for microstock and selling my images on Dreamstime, which is a website I do believe in.

I'm happy now.

I don't have many pictures online yet, but this number is gonna grow!

That's it,

Thanks Dreamstime for the experience!

Wish you all the best in your new venture. I am another fan of DT like you. I am selling my images in other micro stock sites as well. But hardly I have seen any other micro stock site to be as transparent and flexible as DT.
