Since my first Dreamstime upload a little over 4 years ago I have planned to blog about significant milestones; first anniversary, first 100 sales, first 1000 uploads etc. However, for various reasons, including tick bite fever (do not try this at home), I never got around it. So, why blog now? My uploads this morning are 7100, a nice round number, but significant because my 1 January 2018 goal was to get 7000 uploads by end October, with 8000 by the end of the year. My other stats are 818... continue reading

There are some great opportunities, and challenges, in photographing the night sky. This is especially true if you want to include the Milky Way as in this photo below. Here are four steps to make it easier for you.1. Plan the location.You are looking for the darkest sky possible. In order to capture the Milky Way you will need to find a south facing location (in North America) where you are at least twenty miles or so away from a city or town. Plus the scene should ideally have no light sources... continue reading
Last week I was surprised by four niche sales of the city Zwolle, no subscriptions, fully paid. Most of you probably don't even know where Zwolle is located.Like most of you I have architectural pictures of London and Paris. Dreamstime has plenty of pictures of these famous cities. Resulting in very few sales for me. I sell more pictures of for example Beijing and Machu Picchu. The reason is probably that it is more difficult to go there.The same is true for Zwolle, few people... continue reading
I do not consider myself as a shopper. I hate to try things on the shop, stand on long lines etc. I love to shop online because it’s easy for me. I spend many at least 6 to 5 hours in a week for online shopping sites. I search good online sites, comparing sales and prices and look photos of different models in order to find out trendy outfits etc.But, recently I read an article on about shopping online disadvantages. Although the flaws that are mentioned in this article was right like, sometimes... continue reading
Dear fellow Dreamstimers, I would like to mark my milestone of first thousand uploaded photos and first accepted 4K video with something practical, not just with set of pictures from my portfolio. Anyway, thousand pictures online doesn't mean thousand good pictures, only thousand pictures that meet the criteria od Dreamstime standards.Better milestone to celebrate in my opinion is thousand sold pictures (hat goes down for all Dreamstime contributors that allready made it !), because... continue reading

This Christmas I visited the island of Mallorca and I had time to make a few photographs I'm uploading these days of January Dreamstime. I did not use a tripod, so for some shots I placed the camera resting on a seat, window, floor, and set the shot ... a few seconds after pressing. I hope you enjoy these images. continue reading
I haven't been very active on this site for the last couple of months. This is definitely not down to lack of interest or motivation, it's just that real-life had gotten the way for a while. It has given me time to take a step back and re-evaluated the way I work as a photographer. I have learnt a lot over the last couple of months, and hopefully this will show through in my images as I start to upload at a quicker rate again in the foreseeable future.I have only ever sold one image a month since... continue reading
Dear Readers,I am newbie in Dreamstime. I joined around two weeks or so ago. Currently four photographs of mine had been accepted and another one is in review.I have been using a Nikon D3000 with the kit lens since December 2011. I am an amateur photographer at the moment. Sadly I have not upgraded my DSLR as well as my lens due to financial constraints. Nevertheless I am still able to click some good photos every now and then. Right now I am thinking of getting a Nikon 50mm f/1.8G along with... continue reading
