A very BIG THANKYOU to the person who bought this image - my first sale!!!!I was very suprised to get a sale so soon during my first calendar month!

Wow, where does the time go? It was May 5, 2009 when I joined Dreamstime. It was October of 2010 when I last updated my sales. At that time, I had 4653 images with 8500 sales, which I think was pretty good for the first 18 months here at DT.Fast-forward 2 1/2 more years and here we are. I now have 6270 images online with 21712 sales.I've only added 1617 new images these past 30 months, so it's obvious that I have not been drawing as much as I used to.My other client work has taken me away... continue reading

Consistently taking images and uploading.Consistently taking on-line classes and reading books, and learning new things.Consistently... continue reading

I could reach my first 100$ in 3 months with 21 images.. [Sometimes today I am passing 100$ mark on just 1,2 day :) ]... continue reading
Yesterday I decided to look if I had sold anything at all - and with just 86 photo's online my sales are slow but I am fine with that cause for me this is just fun - only to discover that someone bought one of my pics for $11.This is the picture which I believe could have been even better if the sun would have shined.and the next day two more pictures where sold, each for $6.And...all bought with credits from 2010.I feel honoured that someone spend his/her money on my pics... continue reading
