500 Images uploaded since 26th May 2009.


posted on 18th of march, 2010

My first image was accepted by Dreamstime in May 2009 and about 8 months later with much effort I have reached 502 images today. Although my earnings are around $250 I spent that amount replacing one Nikor macro lens [ second hand at that ]. But I treated my Dreamstime work as a tutorial in photography learning from rejections although sometimes being depressed by the shortcomings of my submissions.
I studied the work of successful members and being interested in politics and economics learned to focus the subject matter of many of my images on these subject areas.

Congratulations David! I've just reached 502 images myself, but it took me 6 months longer to get there.

You have some great ideas and concept. Keep them coming and I'm sure your skills will continue to grow

I plodded along for the last 9 months reaching about 520 images on line and selling at up to about $2 per image but suddenly tonight my income shot up by $26 for a single image entitled ' Making an investment in shares '. To say I was shocked is an understatement.


The image earned me 50 credits as a W-EL allowing up to 10,000 electronic copies [ if I understand the rules correctly ].

I was pleased enough yesterday when I resubmitted an image of fresh spring tulips entitled ' Wedding invitation ' with text removed as required by the Editors. As soon as it went on line and before it had any viewings it sold for about $2 and 30 cents.
