Since 2014 I had a collection of "Churches around the world" from big Cathedrals which are landmarks to small churches like the one in the desert of Namibia. Ancient and young, well known and unfamous, romanic, gothic, baroque or modern, Catholic, Orthodox, Baptistan and Lutheran Churches in all their differentiation together. Handmade church in the desert of Kakaoveld, Namibia Interior Cathedral of Cologne, Germany Cloister Iona... continue reading

For many years I used an 18-200mm Nikon zoom lens on my Nikon DX DSLR. While the results were acceptable I received more refusals from Photo Stock Libraries than I expected due to lack of sharp focus. I just assumed this DX lens was sharp but then I read an article saying it was not.So I purchased a Nikon DX 1.8 35mm fixed lens for just a few hundred dollars and what a difference! All my shots are super sharp and my refusals have reduced to almost zero.It does mean I have had to change my... continue reading
Well, not exactly.I suppose I should rephrase my title to more correctly say, "My Family Hates the way microstock has changed me".Yup, it has. I am changed, altered.Microstockly-speaking, I am but a shadow of the man I was fifteen months ago. Like one of the Autobots of Cybertron I seem to constantly be shifting into another shape and form.I am a transformer. I have been transformed...I'm Different.My camera and gear, now permanent appendages, swing out from my carcas at a moments notice,... continue reading
I think there is something magical about this time of the year on dreamstime.Maybe I'm a bit of a voyeur,but I love to browse through random porfoliosto get a peek into how my fellow contributors spent there summer holidays(or winter holidays, for our friends in the southern half of the world)As stock photographers, we have a tendency to leave a trail as we live our lives.That got me thinking about my recent vacation– cruising the Norwegian Fjords.... continue reading
Sometimes I wonder if there are people that happens the same as me. I bought my first digital camera on 2004 and I began to shoot at everything, it was so exciting! I became more and more interested in photography, until I discovered Stock photography in 2006.I learned about it, I found DT and other agencies, I did a try at 2 or 3 but my pics were too bad, just crap. So I got a lot of frustration and began to learn how did stock works, what kind of photos should I send and what not.And now,... continue reading
Somewhere around the year 2001, what everyone knew as stock photography was going to change forever.It was no longer a small niche of professional photographers that could be represented by stock agencies. Anyone with access to the internet and a camera can now venture into stock photography and profit from it. Microstock was born.Dreamstime started out in microstock in 2004, with a small database, with images that today would be considered obsolete and too simple. March 2004, Dreamstime first... continue reading
I actually have never been a serious photographer.I still don't believe I am because there are so many things to learn.The best part about learning photography to me was actually the enjoyment and satisfaction of capturing and seeing things in a new dimension.Before doing this, I was not interested to even travel.The only place I wanted to go was Epcot center in florida (I've been there like 3 times already).To me, I don't feel I really gain anything from going to parks.I can zoom... continue reading
When I joined Dreamstime some years ago, it was for me the first time I approached the micro payment sites world and I did not really know what royalty free images were. I tried posting my first images, that were taken just out of my personal taste and, sure, not for the royalty free market. But now, after some years of Dreamstime, I noticed that my way of taking photos has changed from that moment a lot: I still always look at things and people trying to find out the artistic side with my personal... continue reading
