  • A rose by any other name would not sell as sweet

    by Tangie | 28th of April, 2009

    As stated in my previous articles, a crucial stage in thinking up your uploads is to step in your buyer's shoes: what do buyers need and what are they searching for? Or, most importantly, how do they search for our files? I have seen other users have also addressed this topic.... More
  • Goodbye

    by Ellenboughn | 23rd of February, 2009

    It’s been two years and one month and well over a hundred blogs written since I joined Dreamstime. But now it is time to say goodbye as I move on to finish writing a book that continues the themes of my blogs to be published by an imprint of Random House and to concentrate... More

    by Ellenboughn | 25th of October, 2007

  • Working Together

    by Ellenboughn | 12th of September, 2007

  • First days in Photoland

    by Tangie | 12th of July, 2007

  • Commercial vs artistic integrity

    by Glennmart | 15th of July, 2014

      This is a repost (slightly edited) of something I said in one of the forums. I think it holds true to not just photography, but anything we are passionate about and would like to make a living from. It talks about the tension of doing only what you love, but the... More
