So I was at home in Memphis, Tennessee sitting in a waiting room for an appointment, getting bored I decided to pick up a magazine to kill some time.Thumbing through the pages of "Memphis Magazine", I came across an image that looked oddly familiar, low and behold turned the page sideways and it read photo credit dreamstime/clewisleake!!. The weirdest part of this story is that I have read tons of blogs on Dreamstime on how to find out how contributor sold images are being used and just to... continue reading
Have you ever wondered who actually buys your photos and what they are used for? I have. I occasionally google my own name to see if I can track down any usage of my photos, just for fun.Recently I discovered that one of my photos from beautiful Petra in Jordan was used as a cover photo for the UNWTO (United Nations Tourist Organization) 2014 annual report.This is the photo: And here you can see the report where it was featured at the front page: http://www2.unwto.org/annualreport2014... continue reading

I am new to stock photography and have not yet made much use of photos of people.

They go great after your favorite musician’s gig, for example.However, sausages are not quite that common as we might think of them. The world has its special corners where sausages are created after special recipes just to make sure that the tourist won't ever forget THAT sausage and come back "for one more bite".Very popular... continue reading
One of my files here was downloaded few days ago. I did a search for it cause I just wanted to see where my files end up, and I found it on Czech stock photography website. So they bought my file, I got 35 cents for it and now they are getting money from it? I think they should have bought rights for that, right?Thanks for your thoughts people! Good luck to everyone with their stock! continue reading
Though there may be many things to say about the way this teacher delivers his message.. the fact remains.. he delivers a powerful message of artistic creation.BLOG called: The S_it my Photog prof says continue reading
I've always been curious (and maybe a little apprehensive) about where and how the photographs I've submitted to Dreamstime are being used-- and now with reverse image search functionality in Google (Google reverse image search) (and built into Chrome browser , as described here), I've been merrily finding out!Most of them make sense, as in the case of a toad photo I took at the local aquarium.I suppose I wonder why they didn`t just take their OWN photograph at their own aquarium. I`d like... continue reading
