I am very happy to reach this first milestone.Now I have to work hard to make it to the next milestones: 100 photo's online and 10 photo's sold.Also I started uploading some video's.

Up and away, keys to success on Dreamstime.

Been on Dreamstime a few years now and I can say there's no magic formula to selling images, in other words sales don't explode by reaching any certain approval rating or having a certain amount of images in your portfolio, I believe that the 80% approval rating sales kicker has been debunked numerous times.

Trying to figure out what THEY want...

Stock photography has really got me thinking about what THEY (buyers) really want.My usual fun and forgetful photography isn't proving of any interest to potential buyers.I had to ask myself a few questions.Wondering day and night what it was that I was missing.After deciding to research the site and others, I found that it was sometimes very simple.Talented photographers take oranges cut, sliced, peeled or whole and make them dance before the lens.I was in awe at how my kitchen could... continue reading
