Hello DTI've joined July 25, 2014 that's where my photography adventure starts :) I had no experience before that time. After a month I've set my first goal to increase acceptance ratio as it was only 33%.It motivated me to learn more about photography and quality of my pictures. I now have reached first small milestone of 50 online pictures and improved my acceptance ratio to 55% :) This progress motivated me even more so I've decided to set new challenges! Next targets... continue reading

Leaves are turning brilliant colors here in Michigan in the USA, and the smell of concord grapes from the wineries fill the air. apples hang heavy on the trees and happy orange pumpkins dress every stoop around. Change is in the air, for soon we will have dropped leaves and white ground-in some areas they have had snow already!Here, change has really come for me, but I hope it is only a temporary change, like the seasons. One of my favorite quotes is: The nicest thing about the promise of spring... continue reading

Milestones take huge effort and daily perseverance. Today I reached my second one. It seems that the first two may perhaps be the most difficult to achieve. Having confidence in one's ability when the sales are few and far in between sure takes courage.I'm hanging in there and will be pushing forward! I know that it's about the number of quality images uploaded that drives one's success. Thank you all for sharing your personal successes. They encourage me greatly!!This is my 300th image.... continue reading
Yay I hit my 1500 images uploaded mark today, took 2 and a half years to do it! actually it took a little less then 2 since the first 6 months I didnt have a clue as to what I was doing and it took a great deal of reading blogs and forums and the wonderful help from people on this site.... but I feel good to have gotten this far. Not quite 300 sales yet, but it will come. thanks every one for all your tricks and tips! now on to the next 500!Last batch of images accepted. continue reading
So recently I have reached my goal of 400 images online on Dreamstime, well 404 to be exact. I joined Dreamstime 3 years ago and during this time I learned a lot. I started out as an illustrator. I wasn't very good at this. It took me some time to learn about it and then with the help of income from Dreamstime and some savings I was able to buy my first DSLR. Now I have photos, illustrations and some videos in my portfolio.This was my first image online on Dreamstime.Latest... continue reading
