1300+ images in my portfolio in 3 months :)

Hi all!As some of you might have read already, even though I registered here in 2013, I started to upload images just in March 2016.

New approved photos

Why stock photography is not a hobby

Okay, so it's been a while since my last post and, if you recall, my last DT blog was fairly negative in calling out people who do not pay for using stock images.

And anyway, I like to think that my posts are more about helping and entertaining people than moaning about stuff I can't control! So, with that in mind, I wanted to write a short piece on stock photography. It's something I've wanted to write for a while... continue reading

Struggling for sales

Hi I have been using DT for over 4 years now, but still haven't been able to request a payment as i have never got over the $100 mark (I have invested some back into keymasters), though I have had 40 sales out of 530 uploads. Starting to think i need to change style / subject material. Any advice to take things up a notch guys? Probably not enough images of people...Thanks     continue reading
