Commercial vs Editorial: why limit yourself?

And it’s true, most of the buyers are using stock images in commercial purposes, meaning that, in order to comply with the laws, there are a number of limitations to what you can and what you can’t sell as stock. However, creativity and limitations don’t go really well together. Yes, you should avoid copyrighted elements and have a model release for each visible... continue reading

For Nikon D800 users

Hello everybody, I just wanted to share an experience I had with DT that took me a while to figure out.I have been uploading RAW files taken with a Nikon D300 as additional format with every submission with no problems. It was after I started using a Nikon D800 with the "uncompressed RAW" setting when I could not upload files on this format anymore.After sending several inquiries to Costumer support and not getting a valid response or solution, it occur to me that maybe there's a "limit on... continue reading

Each upload is a celebration

Now I understand why people celebrate and announce their uploads. I went from 10 to 5 uploads a day because of massive uploads. Today I was "done" after one single upload!With this limit it takes forever to built a reasonable portfolio and everyone knows that size does matter.....Besides that: the last weeks there have been some technical problems that even made my 5 uploads a day impossible.I hope DT understands that this won't work for us (creative) photographers! continue reading

Space Is The Limit!

On the 27th of August I heard some inaccurate news (I don't remember if it was an e-mail!) that Mars will be the closest to earth, so it will be seen like another moon!On that night I was driving home and suddenly when I remembered I stopped the car and had a walk to see if I can see the moon clearly!I saw half of a moon :)) But haven't seen the other moon (Mars)! I confess I started looking to the stars like who has lost something :))But this story has inspired me to make these illustrations.... continue reading
