A trick to gain a new model :-)

Anytime a friend asks me for a help, I say "YES, but you know, could you give me a favor ...? That way I have created several very cooperative models.For example this guy needed to borrow a drilling machine: And this one was very cold at a garden party, so I had offered him to share a blanket: However, the best models are, of course, children. Give them something to eat, and suddenly you have got a very willing coworker :-)  continue reading

Hint to get more model releases from strangers of street photography

Hi everyone,Thought I would share my hints with you about how I build up model releases for my photos , especially photos that I take on the street, beach or whereever of virtual strangers.Let's take the beach for a perfect setting. If I plan a day at the beach, when packing my camera bag, I always include at least half a dozen Dreamstime model release forms, as I know that while I am there, I am going to snap off some wonderful photos of strangers enjoying the day, as much as we are.So,... continue reading

Tips for my Friends

Welcome to Dreamstime. A strange world where you could earn money for the photos that you take.You may be asking yourself, "What is a commercial image and how do I get a submitted file approved through Dreamstime?".Well I am still learning myself. When I first started my profile I thought, I have thousands of photos on my computer. Some of those must be good for this site.Out of the first hundred photos, only about 25 were accepted. This gave me a rating of around 25% and cut my... continue reading

Just Beginning at Dreasmtime

MR each time while shooting..?

As I noticed, there is only 1 MR needed here (for 1 model). When you shoot more times (different days) with the same model, do you sign every time MR? Or may I use same form for the whole year (specific) year..? (only once signed at the beginning)Thanks.Vašek continue reading

You always need to get a model release don't you ?

I wish when I started here as a newbie that I understood the answer to this question. I didn't know for a long timeabout Editorial pictures. It certainly slowed me down trying to avoid getting people in my images.Clearly you cannot run after the Queen or Prime Minister and ask , ' please sign here ' on a contract form !At events like agricultural shows, highland games, lectures by VIPs you can take pictures which need no model release. You aren't allowed to manipulate the images obtained at... continue reading

MY FIRST BATCH OF EDITORIAL IMAGES RELEASED

Hey everybody out there and specially newbie like me who have just started out and feel confused what to upload and what not. Few months ago I visited to a cultural festival at Surajkund Faridabad Haryana in India. I shot lots of artists performing their traditional arts and I even liked those images but they could not see the light of the day and most went into oblivion of my HDD, as I was not having the MR for them. But one day this thought came to me that if I do not have MR for my all those images,... continue reading

Do editorial photos sell? And at what ratio to commercial?

I have about 1200 photos on line at DT and practically all are for advertisement. But when I click on contributors portfolios, I see many editorial images. I just got back from a trip to France. Do any images of say, a prespective shot of the Arc de Triomphe with the Champs Elysees on both sides sell? What is the ratio of editorial to commercial sales on DT? Maybe I've been ignoring photos because I can't get 250 model releases or a property release to the Empire State building!Any thoughts or ideas?... continue reading
