  • On My Way!

    by Iheartcountryphoto | 20th of December, 2013

  • Why don't increase the level of subscription?

    by Andrews71 | 21st of September, 2013

    I think that the price of selling in DT should be reviewed by management. For example, my last 20 picture sold just 4 are with credits and 16 (!!) are with subscriptions at 0.42$ each I can comprehend that we earn on volume and not on the single picture sold, but I... More
  • How to get ahead in stock photography

    by Bradcalkins | 20th of September, 2013

    Like a few others here, I'm skeptical of the benefit of using social media to promote your stock photography. While there may be some benefit, one has to also consider the opportunity cost. How much time spent on social media could be spent on producing more images?... More

    by Angelaostafichuk | 22nd of June, 2013

    Earlier on this year I made a resolution to branch out into other mediums, and video was one of the ones that seemed to have the most potential. You can do so much with it, and video can be an excellent tool for empowerment when taught to others. AS a female, I see what's... More
  • Stop at my sales!

    by Angelaravaioli | 21st of June, 2013

    My sales have almost stopped, but I have just over 1000 images online ... It is the fault of the crisis? or maybe my portfolio is very poor? Should I start a little to reflect. I think DT is a good place to put your pictures online, my photos are viewed, but despite purchases... More
