One small step in my Dreamtime journey

Hello fellow Dreamtimers,I wanted to share my little milestone of 50 sales. It has been a slow start for me since I joined in August 2014. Working fulltime it has been hard to build up my portfolio but I’m plodding along. I have 281 images uploaded and have achieved a grand total of $114.67.After reading some great advice from experienced DT members before I began uploading, I promised myself I would try to maintain a high acceptance ratio and have been able to stay around the 85% mark.... continue reading

New milestone

Today I have achieved one of the goal that I had set for myself when I first joined Dreamstime, some have told me that my expectation were too high that I was in competition with better more experienced photographer than I. To these folks today I say take a good look! because only by 4 months have I missed the goal set 3 years ago which was 500 sales, but I also achieved another milestone with my first $1k and to boot with an image that sold for the first time in 2 years being available. Here it is:... continue reading

Finally.. the much awaited First Sale happened

I started uploading images on DT towards end of 2014 and shortly had managed more than 100 pics approved. I used to regularly track my images and saw that most of them were getting frequently viewed but they were not getting downloaded. I thought maybe I am missing some basic trick in my photos and stopped visiting DT. Yesterday i opened DT solely with the aim of looking at some pics i had clicked during my last trip to Switzerland. I was pleasantly surprised and shocked to see that there had been... continue reading

First 100$ milestone (and first blog post)!

Quite happy to have finally made it. I jumped over the 100$ threshold with a 9.90 $ sale of a very green image, which is by far the most I got for a single sale. I started with dreamstime back in 2010 when I uploaded a couple of images out of curiosity to see whether anybody would buy my images. Not much activity from my side for four years after that, but about a year ago I started again uploading, this time more seriously leading to 765 accepted images and more than 100 $ in sales as of today.... continue reading
