My Experience Buying Your Images

For many years I was a photographer on Dreamstime. And I still have an old, but still selling portfolio here.

These days I am too busy to shoot. But I am back on Dreamstime buying instead of contributing. It's early days, but I thought I might share a few thoughts with you that may help you sell more stuff.

I have started writing blogs on LinkedIn as a way of building my own personal brand, you can see my portfolio of stories HERE

The narcissist

The above image from Atholpady was used for a story I wrote on how to deal with narcissists.

I get a lot of enquiries from readers asking where to buy photos, and always direct them to Dreamstime. But I am amazed at how many people (business people) think they can just nick stuff off the internet.

There are two things I wish to point out.

1. Get yourself a profile on LinkedIn and write blogs about how you can supply your images through Dreamstime.

2. Peruse the stories that are selling and create images to suit those story lines.
