Start with a photowalk

As an amateur it's really important that you shoot a lot and do this frequently, however this is easier said and done. You usually find yourself without your camera when there is a good shot or don't have something to shoot with your equipment in hand. Also there is a initial shyness to carry around your camera everywhere you go and then to grab the courage to point it towards someone and shoot. I am sure everyone has gone through this phase or experiencing it right now. I have heard someone... continue reading

In the Beginning

I have been taking photos for years. Many photos. Anytime there is a camera in my hand I am taking photos. Anytime there is not a camera in my hand I am composing scenes in my head and wishing I had a camera in my hands.All the while people have been complementing me on my photography. On my raw, unedited work. Images that are screaming at me to refine, to make perfect.But I never did anything with it. I let the photos sit on hard drives to be lost in the sands of time. To be hidden in a box... continue reading

Start to shoot food

Couple months ago, I start shooting food and food ingredients. A whole new universe was open to my eyes. Didn't realize that usual, daily products, fruits and vegetables can be artistic in some way.For me, photography was focused on portraits: seniors, childs, men, woman, young and old peopleArchitecture: offices, old buildings, old architecture.Food.... really starts to capture my attention after I saw how much can you do and how you can arrange a scene.I'd like to know other people'... continue reading

A hard days work

Some year and a half ago someone tipped me to place my photo's on Dreamstime: "you never know, someone could like your pictures and get you some earnings". So I started to judge my one photo's, till then mainly published on Flickr, and publish them on Dreamstime. What a disappointment at the start. The first I sent in were rejected. The tips and tricks the editors gave were used to ameliorate my material and my judgement. A new body was bought and only the very best were uploaded. Slowly the number... continue reading

Go back to start

Dear Dreamstime contributors and designers,It's been a while since I wrote a blog.Everything in my life crumbled apart piece by piece during 2015:April 2015 I dislocated and broke both of my shoulder simultaneous during powerlifting (one of my passions). This meant I had to stop training for two months, and it will take about a year or two before I am back on track strength wise.In in october my team manager at work stepped aside, and did everything for me to succeed her. A few years back... continue reading

My first 100 photos

9 beautiful sales in one night

Today I am very exited to announce that I had 9 total sales. It seemed to me that sales had gone to a halt and that it wasn't worth waiting. The only thing you can do is upload, cross your fingers and sit back and wait. Then suddenly I heard my account notifications going off and wondered what was going on. I thought it was something like an acceptance/refusal of an image, but instead it was sales. I am very exited and will continue to do my best to attracts costumers. Thank you and happy shooting... continue reading
