I just wanted to share a quick story with you. I often peruse the pictures recently downloaded, Editor's Choice, and newly added just to see what's going on out there. One of these times I saw a picture of a beautiful model, and I clicked to see her other pictures because she looked so familiar. I couldn't figure it out. Well, last Friday I went to Kmart (here in Chicago), and on the way back to the bus stop, I saw the model's picture on a bus stop bench! THAT is why she looked familiar!
As soon as I got home, I looked up the picture and the photographer. I notified her immediately that I found her picture on a bench. The best part? This photographer and model are in Moscow (if I remember correctly)! Imagine, our photos are being downloaded, and we really have no idea where they are going. How exciting it must be to know that your photo is located in a metropolis in ANOTHER COUNTRY!!! Here is the pic:
Anyway, I wanted to share this story because I think it's exciting and encouraging. I encourage all of you to also look at the photos on Dreamstime in the hopes you might find one of them in a magazine or on a city bench. And also, take a few minutes to imagine in what cities or countries YOUR photos might be.
I have been here for nearly 4 years, and I have done every search every which way imaginable, but I cannot locate one single photo of mine that has ever been downloaded. But I was SO excited to see a fellow DT member's photo out there, a half a world away.
I encourage each of you to keep your eyes open and notify the photographer when you find their work. I bet they would be excited. I know I would!
Here are a few of my best sellers. Have you seen them??? :-)
Happy sales everyone!
