Starting a new adventure with Dreamstime

For over a year now I've traveled the US in an Airstream (the big silver twinkies on wheels). Almost every state has been visited, and I've taken photos everywhere I've gone.

Last year while traveling Montana I met a fellow Airstreamer, author, and photographer for National Geographic. Talk about impressive! On top of his list of credentials he also had a vast array of stock photography available. He got me thinking.

Finally, a few weeks ago I decided to try out a stock photo site, and chose Dreamstime. So far so good. I've got a lot to learn, and I'll be reading here a lot. Thanks to all for suggestions in your blogs, and wish me luck.

Oh, my favorite subjects? Outdoor photography, climbing, hiking, kayaking. Since I arrived in AZ I've been doing a lot of climbing. Now I need to work out the best big wall photos and get them up here too!

Thanks for the comments! I'm still learning, but we'll see how it goes.

My photographer friend from Montana has been looking over my shots lately, as I ask him for advice. His recent responses have been, "You don't need advice from me anymore Rich, just keep shooting." Nice to hear.

Currently I'm in Arizona, and thinking about calling this place home. Sedona, the Sonoran Desert, climbers, hiking, etc. So much to do, so much to photograph!

Thanks for the welcome!

Great images! My husband and I team drove an 18-wheeler for two years. We visited every state in the country except Alaska and Hawaii (naturally, hard to get there on wheels, ha!ha!). I was doing a little photography at that time, but time was very little as was equipment. I can only imagine the imagery you have from your excursions, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of them here on DT.
