I don’t have many downloads to make a serious statistics, but so far my best images are the unique ones. I started with painting. My paintings are pure exploration of world of colors and shapes, exploration of my inner world, my emotions and sensations. They all are the abstract paintings. But I wasn't satisfied. Somehow, I felt it wasn't showing what I wanted to express. So I experimented with my camera. I stared to make macro shots of specific parts of paintings and one painting could... continue reading

I started to contribute to microstock photography agencies in 2013 (shortly after the birth of my elder son).

Based on my 4 years experience I made a simple list of a few tips that could be useful to everybody who wants to start to make money from microstock. 1. Enjoy your job. If you want to build a new solid portfolio from a scratch you’re going to have a long road... continue reading
After a long time away from DT, due to the loss of my whole camera setup, I decided to buy another one and keep on posting for my Exclusivity contribution to this database, improving the quality of my shots and the times of shooting sessions.And so I also decided to ask for a serious critique on what is good or not for this platform (i.e. what could sell better in my portfolio, what I should leave out of it and what can wait).Comments and critiques are very seriously welcome here, to help me improve... continue reading

Hello all,With the upload of my six new photos, my acceptance ratio has increased from 72.1% to 76.5%!I think my mistake last month (my first month at Dreamstime) was that I uploaded too many at once, meaning that only nineteen out of thirty one were actually accepted... This month I only uploaded ten and six were accepted but I definitely concentrated more on the titles, descriptions and keywords. Which is ultimately what matters because that is what the customer will be searching! I still... continue reading
