Looking at the blogs this morning, there were two articles, one after the other that, to me, sums up stock photography very well. Firstly, there was Thorken, who has achieved 10,000 submissions in around 7 years, big congratulations. Then there was the blog from Nikoslavdragonball, who has just made his first sale, big congratulations to you too.I don't know if Thorken ever thought that he would make it to 10,000 and I don't know if Nikoslavdragonball imagines he will make 10,000 but the blogs... continue reading

Hello DreamstimersIt’s been a little while since I blogged about anything but in my last blog I mentioned about my benchmark was to have 150 images online by the end of the year. Today I’m pleased to say I managed it a few months earlier.It is surprising, but when you put your mind to to the task in hand, it’s amazing what can be achieved (Note to Self – get and keep organised and to keep uploading).Below are the images that took me over my benchmark and now look forward to further... continue reading

So 150 photos uploaded in the first two months. I was loosing faith and BOOM one sale for 43 cents. It may not be much however, it was a confidence booster and I feel that I may someday make traction. I started this once I realized that I had 150 gigabytes of photos, and thought more than a few were worth other people seeing. I hope you all enjoy them, most are old and I am still continuing to upload as time permits. I am currently working on isolation work, so you may see some of the previous wildlife... continue reading
Feels great to see today's stat! I was waiting for this eagerly...77 downloads out of 160 files and the latest download giving me my 1st 100th :)After I started in last year Feb I was not following DT as initially the stat was not so inspiring. This year, one fine morning, I opened my account and saw a good number of downloads along with my 1st TIFF sale! That was enough to encourage and I continued again :) continue reading

Things like editorial images and... continue reading
