Nearing the 100$ mark

It has been little more than 8 years in Dreamstime now... With 157 Photographs and 77 Sale I am inching close to 100 Dollars mark which would be my first pay out.The journey was not without disappointment. It has been a roller coaster ride starting with the initial Happy phase and then the sad ones when lots of my photographs got rejected and then came the phase with first sale and subsequent acceptance of few more photographs.I am waiting anxiously when someone would buy a couple more of... continue reading

First $100 Cashout, 268 Images Online

$200 in about 5 months

This is good news for the newbies who are trying to get paid for a hobby. I haven't really been putting in any efforts at conceptual stock photos and portraits, which are supposed to sell best.

17 cents which drive me crazy...
