The children of the Giriama tribe are supposed to make themselves responsible for various issues like taking care of the goats, of their younger brothers and sisters, fetching water and collecting firewood and even cooking the meals. As we walked along the Galana river in Kenya we found this small boy somehow bored, leaning against a palm tree and looking at us while the herd of goats he was supposed to have an eye upon was grazing a few meters away near the river bench.They take it as a natural thing... continue reading

Topic today : Why use legal, licensed images from Dreamstime vs. pulling from a search engine or social media? Did you think that?

Free Photos Are EverywhereIf you're using free photos from search engines such as Google, let's imagine. You're preparing to make a travel advertisement on your local TV channels.

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
Images of humor and satire to think of smiling at our own absurdity and to remain aware of social injustices I think one idea has the power to change reality, it takes time and patience, the idea is to follow a share, but by an idea you start to go one way rather than another.As a creative I think it's my responsibility, what I accomplish, and I hope always in a dialogue with other illustrators.Even if the subject is not always politician it is a bearer of meaning. ... continue reading
I'm tired of American Politics.You can't turn on the TV these days without politicians or their surrogates slinging mud at each other in very loud voices, and we still have 3 months until the election. The level of discourse in this country seems to reach a new low each day.But this has also made me think about the way we treat each other on social media.It seems that the animosity of the internet has given rise to a new social "norm" for how we speak with each... continue reading
I have to admit, I never understood Twitter.I'm not sure I still do.I understand why people tweet but until I started at Dreamstime, I never found a purpose for Twitter myself.Plus, it's only fun if you are the type with a lot of snarky one-liners.A friend of mine, an artist, decided to use Twitter as a platform to advertise her artwork.I decided to do the same with my microstock photos.Lately, it's been resulting in a slight rise in sales and I like to think it's in part because of Twitter.... continue reading

It keeps me busy, which suits... continue reading
Ever capture a great image that you just knew was useful only to have it not sell?, Well I captured this great image while on vacation down in Virginia, USA and I knew it was a sure fire seller but noticed after a year it didn't have any sales!, so I tried re-tweeting it and presto!, bam! It had its first sale a few days after I re-tweeted it and it's currently on its way up my most popular list. continue reading
