Just 84¢ away from my second $100 paycheck!

It took me a year and a half to earn my first $100 on Dreamstime, with a small, 30-image portfolio (all illustrations). I've only added two images since then but most of my images are level 2 and higher. This time around, it will only have taken me 6 months to earn that $100. If I keep going at this rate, I can earn the next $100 in 3 months! Yeah! Getting paid is so exciting!My most popular imageMy second best sellerI recently purchased a Canon t2i camera and once I learn how to... continue reading

Stock-Tuitiveness: The First Paycheck
