I was raised to love my neighbor as myself. I think of my fellow photographers on Dreamstime here as my neighbors. One of the ways I try to show love to my neighbors here on Dreamstime is to help promote their pictures. I have a Twitter account that is set up just for my business. Twitter can be fun because it's kind of neat to see what is trending on any given day. Then I do a search on my portfolio to see if I have a picture that might go with what is trending. If I do, then I will post that... continue reading

I have had 600 uploads accepted in just over 2 months, I have also shot all of the photos that I have uploaded in the last 2 months and have not used any that I already had taken.I have found it hard work but very rewarding, when someone takes the time to say a nice comment about a photo that I have taken it is great and when a designer buys one of my photos it is fantastic.When I started this journey a friend emailed me and said that I was wasting my time, that was like a red rag to a bull for... continue reading

I am new to DT and am pleasantly surprised to see that DT has in place a system for unauthorized usage.This begs the question of how and when to promote your own stock photography on other venues - particularly FaceBook, Twitter and other social networking.If you own a blog you can promote your link to your stock photography portfolio in many different ways.So too with social networking - and this is perhaps the 'safest' way to do so.The biggest challenge with FB and other social networking... continue reading
One of the social media I use to promote my portfolio is Google Plus.Before starting to promote Dreamstime images there, I followed and built followers. Commented on other's posts, posted here and there, basically had fun while making connections and learning.- Connect with other's content by commenting or plusing if you like it. Probably they will do the same for you. Criticize honestly when someone asks for critiques.- Ask to be included in circle shares of your interest.- Do not... continue reading
I need to begin this article by apologizing to whom ever DT contributor(s) I did any harm through the requests I sent for self-promoting my assignment file, asking for your vote: I apologize!!Secondly, I need to ask all of you that got my vote request these past two days to ignore it completely and not to enforce it!!I had the surprise of receiving an e-mail from DT Supportthat informed me this “practice” was “strictly forbidden” though “not ill-intended”. As a consequence,... continue reading
I wanted to find different ways of simbolizing the peace and I create some images to promoting peace. We are living terrible facts and unfortunately this is not a world of only love, everything seems to get worst, frauds, murders, violences, inside the families too. I thought that we should never forget that peace is possible, just like a rainbow is possible, infinites micro drops of water linked together, like us, millions of people living in the same world. continue reading
I have recently discovered a free website for artists in my state and there are probably some in other areas, also.On my site, that I'm trying to finish, I can put info about my Dreamstime account.It has introduced a lot of people to Dreamstime.And, hey, free works for me!I don't advertise my other small business in order to keep costs down for customers, so anything else I can do to let people know about my services is nice. And in the future, I plan to put my Dreamstime URL on the back of... continue reading
