One Hundred Sales!

Hello Everyone,

Just yesterday, I reached my 100th sale here at Dreamstime. For me this is a huge milestone as less than a year ago, April 2008, I submitted two photos that started my journey into micro stock photography. The photos were accepted and within a few weeks, I had my first sale. The joy and feeling of accomplishment of having one’s work accepted into the commercial world is amazing. This has been inspirational in driving me to work harder, learn more, and practice the techniques offered in blogs and tutorials by many talented and generous members of the Dreamstime family.

Taking photographs and capturing images is something I would do regardless of the financial gain. However, learning to take better photos by gaining knowledge of my equipment and post processing techniques makes taking photos immensely more enjoyable.

Therefore, in closing I offer my sincere thanks to the many that have offered the helpful tips and tutorials. Thanks to the Dreamstime team for considering my images and many thanks to the buyers that have purchased the images.

My One hundredth sale, a lioness stalking

Cheers to all -- Marilyn

Congrats Mariylin.

My sincere thanks to all of you for such positive comments -- in comparison to many of you my accomplishment may seem very small; however, we all start in the same place. We took a photo or created an illustration that sparked a creative streak within us and then we were enthusiastic enough (and brave enough) to share it with the rest of the world. I wish for all of you to experience joy in every accomplishment no matter how small or large.
