What does 20 cents mean to you?

Having become an exclusive contributor for Dreamstime recently, I would earn 20 cents for every photograph uploaded. I have been asking myself what this amount means to me.For most of us, I suppose, 20 cents isn’t much.It isn’t enough to get us a set lunch, for example.             20 cents isn't enough for us to take public transport, such as a bus or a subway train.             20 cents can’t buy us some nice clothes.             ... continue reading

Solar eclipse 20 th March 2015

Today, 20 th March, 2015 there is an unique event in the world.On the same day: an eclipse of the sun, the spring equinox and the "super moon" at perigee.The disc of the moon, very large because the satellite is at the minimum distance from Earth, has just covered the sun, obscuring it.I am very happy to share with you this event of the solar eclipse that, although Italy has been only partial compared than northern Europe where it was total, anyway it was a spectacular event.This my... continue reading

About 18 months back, my acceptance ratio on DT was at about 35%. While this was an increase from the earlier 25%, thanks largely due to a slightly better understanding of microstock requirements and general composition, it was still a bit dispiriting to see many images being refused for poor image quality.I had sold a DSLR and settled down with an Olympus E-PL1, a small mirrorless camera, and a 14mm lens. While it took some great images in bright light, handholding was a major issue for night... continue reading

Milestone: $20,000 Total Earnings, Lesson Learned: Ego vs Confidence

I've recently reached two milestone with Dreamstime: Fives years as a contributor and $20,000 total earnings. I was first published 40 years ago and thus started my career in freelance art, but I never really enjoyed any real income until I branched into online microstock. I've had a lot of fun and many unique experiences over the years, but it's nice to have learned a few things along the way to where it generates a secondary income.One thing I've recently learned is the conflict between "Confidence"... continue reading

Five years, and 20,000 sales later...

I always had a thing for nice round numbers, so it is with some satisfaction that I hit 20,000 sales right around my 5 year anniversary!When I started out I never would have guessed I would get to this point, but I also completely underestimated how much effort would be required to get here.I should clarify that a bit - it isn't so much effort that was required, but steady effort.Stock photography is a bit of a numbers game, so doing a few more images a month adds up to hundreds of additional... continue reading
