11 tips for the new contributors to increase sales

I started to contribute to microstock photography agencies in 2013 (shortly after the birth of my elder son). The hobby of stay-at-home mum has turned into my main job ( except taking care of my family of course :-)). Based on my 4 years experience I made a simple list of a few tips that could be useful to everybody who wants to start to make money from microstock. 1. Enjoy your job. If you want to build a new solid portfolio from a scratch you’re going to have a long road... continue reading

Trying something new

While most of my uploads here on Dreamstime have been people or product shots,I recently decided to try something quite out of my comfort zone. While there are a number of tributes to 9-11 on this site, I decided to see if I could take something very simple and make a concept shot to remember this terrible time in our history. I found a box of staples in my desk drawer and the light bulb went on! I also thought that perhaps I could try something a little different with the few lights that I have.... continue reading

Exclusive contributer

One of my first blogs I wrote was about my thoughts Not to become an exclusive contributer. But over the months I changed my mind. I thought about it a long time. Every now and then I looked at the exclusivity button on the management area and saw what my earnings could have been.Then I counted my earnings elsewhere and everytime I checked, I earned more on Dreamstime if I was an exclusive contributer.I also took in account the time I was spending uploading to the other sites. It does saves... continue reading
