Rodeos, and editorial licenses

I've recently submitted photos I had taken whilst at a rodeo in Grace Idaho, and this is a place where it would be impossible to acquire a model release for all people in most photos. So I am very happy about using the editorial license to put my photos up for sale on Dreamstime.Also I would like to point out that I have found that when taking action shots at a rodeo a 100 to 500 mm zoom lens works very well for these conditions.    continue reading

Two extended licenses for the same image on the same day!

Just as I was thinking my sales were slow this month compared to the previous three, I found this morning that I had sold two TIFF extended licenses (W-EL & P-EL) for the same image:I think it's probably the same buyer, which seems unusual. Has anyone else had this experience?Thank you to the buyer! continue reading

Old images

Some works of art, photographs we find in attics, in the old cellars, trenches, in dilapidated buildings. Among them there are absolute masterpieces, very successful exclusive footage that could be forever lost. The author of these works, as a rule, is not known, but what to do? Do not disappear as good! I believe that the Saviour, who had raised such works from oblivion, has the full right to sell their licenses until't find the original author, and even in the case of detection of authorship he... continue reading

Sell the rights

The recommended amount or a higher/lower one?Third: Does it make sense to have the same price for SR-EL1, SR-EL3 and SR-EL?My answers to this questions are:First: I think, one SR-sale... continue reading

A Question About Licenses...

I just joined Dreamstime (literally, just today) and I was uploading images and then I came to the bottom section where you have to pick which licenses to give to the image. I read through what the licenses mean, but honestly, it doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Is it bad to check all the license boxes? Should you just check the royalty free one at the top? I guess, I understand what each license does, I'm just not sure which ones are the best ones to check. What do you guys do? continue reading

Extended Licenses & Money

In many agencies, photography forums, magazines I have seen a lot of people argue about the extended licenses available in the microstock industry. The licenses grant the rights to the buyer to modify the image they bought and resell it as their product (images printed on t-shirts,mugs,magazines,etc) through any means of sale.Many photographers and designers believe that this is a big loss considering the efforts put in making that image against the price they receive for it. The worst part is... continue reading
