Hello,So excited to have my first 100 accepted !I guess the first time I was interesting in Photography was when my grade 6 teacher built a darkroom and I made my first photo from a negative, butI never pursued it. Life got in the way and that was somewhat forgotten about, I was always the one with camera though.Years went by, 30 plus years!I bought a point an shoot..it was fun for awhile, but I wanted more, my Son bought me a Canon,( non interchangeable lens) I was so excited! I learnt... continue reading

I've decided to write a little story. Yes this is a small thing and not worth mentioning to some but it means a lot to me because it confirms something i always believed in!If you believe in something and that voice inside you tells you this must be right, don't hesitate fight for it!Whenever you fell, get up and do it better next time and keep on going until you succeed! Why? Because at the end of your journey there is priceless reward waiting for you! Satisfaction!Below picture was rejected... continue reading
On logging in today I was impressed to find that my latest sale was of this image.What made me impressed was that this is one of my most recently uploaded images, has only 32 views and sold for $4.32, and no that is not unusual, what is though, is that this image was initially refused due to lighting etc...I was surprised as I thought it was perfectly lit, and just thought oh well, they just did not like the image and despondently ignored to rectify the image. But for some... continue reading

The answer is NO!I sold an I-EL!!!!The first in a whole year of effort and perseverance. The first one I corresponded, after seeing many who claimed to have seen. Yes ,appeared... continue reading
I have read some books about stock photography and most of them advise the reader to have his photographs sold by different websites. They say we can earn more money this way but... is that real?I really don't know about it - I'm new in the microstock business and like thousands of others, I want to earn money too.So, what I can say about exclusivity is: I WANT TO BE EXCLUSIVE to Dreamstime. Why? Because I'm happier this way. As they say: it's a commitment and I can be exclusive because they believe... continue reading
Some years ago, I was called by a microstock editor who wanted to have my pictures on his website. The guy wanted to pay me 15% of commission over the pictures sold. I really thought about it and asked him to explain me better about the structure of his image bank and how I should submit my images. The guy then explained me everything, saying that his website was only selling CDs of specific themes and all the images should be photographed using positive slides - I could not submit any digital image... continue reading
