Hello, Everyone,This is the first article on my blog and I'm very glad to say I've just got my first model released image approved here on Dreamstime!Can't wait to see how popular and profitable it will be.I've always liked shooting people at family events or portraits of some guys and girls.

Well, now I know to make sure I have some blank releases... continue reading
