My new “editorial” life

In February Dereamstime has launched the new editorial licence and this has changed my photographic life but not only that. Let me explain.

I’ve always loved taking pictures of the places I visit but my obsession was to take pictures with NO people at all, this even before starting selling my images on DT.

With this new licence I’ve discovered a million more possibilities to enjoy my hobby. I started taking pictures with people and I found out that I like taking portraits.

Now I can also publish pictures of my favourite sport: volleyball. And also pictures of the great Italian volleyball players I'm so proud of.

My way of reading the newspaper has changed too. Now I immediately look for events, or unusual things to see and take pictures of.

In occasion of the Half Marathon in my hometown I woke up early even if it was a Sunday, I had breakfast with my husband in the Ducal square waiting for the marathon to start. I then met friends who were going to run. In the end I enjoyed my Sunday much more than I would have if I had rested in bed till late.

The editorial licence is my motivating force to win my laziness and go to make new experiences, so my portfolio is a bit more varied and my life is better too.

I am new to stock and don't know the rules yet on people !! I take it if it is for editorial you can take photos of people at events and in the street and its OK ? If that is the case then I will be changing the way I shoot from now on as well as I don't have the confidence to ask them to sign a model release just yet ....


Thank you Alberto! :))


Many time passed from may but...
I like your portfolio.
Good luck, for your "new editorial life"


Hi Fenghui! Thanks for your comment!

I have played volleyball for many years (I think I started when I was 8/9), but now I just enjoy watching it! Unfortunately I don't have the time to practise regularly! ;-)


hi Valerial!
I like your editorial pic about vollyball.I play vollyball since 7-8 years old.
let us keep going


Thanks Dadina! ;-)


Hi Valeria! your editorial pictures are beatiful,I like it. I hope too to have the opportunity to make some editorial pictures!!..Congrats for your new editorial life!!


Yes! I imagine it's quite expensive!!! But maybe you can take pictures of the celebrations around the stadium! Good luck!!! :))

Also, according to my experience, there are less popular sports where you can manage to take pictures without too many people around! Look for them! ;-)


:) Valeria: thanks for your comment on my picture, its my first comment, thank you.
Of course I hope I could go to the Beijing National Stadium (Bird's Nest), but at the games time, people arround the world will gather in beijing, I don't want to add trouble to the public transportation.
Besides, the ticket is very expensive,,, :)


Yes, Wayne Zhou, let's keep it going!!! Will you have the opportunity to see the Olympic Games??? That will be a great editorial opportunity!!! Enjoy it! :)


My first download was also started with an editoral image.
So let's keep going!
