Arriving at Dreamstime

“You can take moon pictures with it.” Said my friend.That sounded such a cool thing to do. I had never taken a photo of the moon.In fact, I had never even considered the possibility of taking a picture of the moon.For the previous eight years about 90% of the photos I had taken were wobbly one handed snaps of my son alongside associated toys, friends and relations. The other ten percent were indistinguishable blurs. They were all taken on my phone, at a time when phone cameras were not... 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

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

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
