All those Myths...

I love stock photography, my favorite hobby. When I have a chance in my busy life, I go over my photos and look for the "Dreamstime quality" ones that I can submit. Even though I have still a very small portfolio, I try to understand my statistics to find some kind of pattern and hope that my numbers will get better over time.There are so many Myths I read over the years about how uploading in a constant manner will give you more exposure and more sales, how your acceptance ratio influences your... continue reading

Firsts pictures, firsts views,...

Good evening!I'm new at stock photography, and I've been using dreamstime as I read is one of the best stock photo pages.By now I'm trying to upload pictures little by little, anyway I can't keep my patience and wait for those 10-12 days to see if my pictures are accepted or not.I've realized that when the views grow, they don't do it one by one, but from 6 to 12, 20 to 27,...

Statistics

I was looking through my statistics and noticed that in October I had the biggest approval ratio (over 80%), which made me really happy! I also had the most sales (not the biggest revenue, though) and I'm heading towards my first payout (still, not as fast as I'd like too). I really really hope that once I hit the first 100$, the others will come more easy!In the meanwhile, I'm really busy with University and I don't have too much time for photography, but I'm willing to make some illustrations... continue reading
