Four years ago I created my dreamstime account just as an experiment. I didn't know at that time that I will come so far. I was still a student (an engineering student). Photography and and design was my hobby. My dreamstime portfolio doesn't only represent some images but... More
Hello Dreamstimers (is it ok to call ourselves that way?). I consider myself as new in photography. I'm an IT person who got into taking pictures in January 2014. This is when I bought my DSLR Canon EOS T3i and started to read, watch, and self-learn about this amazing craft.... More
Last year at this time, I had only been a member of DT for a few months, I felt a little like I was drowning trying to learn everything I could and "catch up". I was doing my best to get the 50 photos online so that I could become exclusive. A year later, I have 216 photos... More
It's time to celebrate again!
My no. 200 is online!
It's been a great journey until now even if it took longer than I expected.
Now I understand that I am a little bit lazy and I have to change that!
Thank you DT for this journey and thank you editors for being beside... More
They always told me 'you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl' and that is true of me. I grew up in the back country of West Kentucky, nothing but fields and woods out our back door. I spent 7 years in the heart of St. Louis,... More
Grew to know the Flaming Mountains, know where very hot. This from a kid on TV, "Journey to the West." But never to go. Last month, the opportunity to go here and see the real Huoyanshan.
Great! See Article
As I reach 24 accepted photos on Dreamstime I feel like I’ve climbed Mont Blanc. I set out with my little 350D a year or so ago and thought, ‘this will be easy; point, shoot, submit and perhaps earn a fortune.’
In reality I have faced raging storms (of frustration)... More
It took me a bit over a year to gain my 200 uploads - today I did it.
I'm usually a bit shy taking photos of people I don't know - so this one isn't really typical for me. But what I like about this pic is that it really tells a bit a story about the diversity of the people... More
I have been an active contributor since past 8 months, especially since May. Reached $10 milestone yesterday!
My initial phase was trying to create images which was technically correct. It took me around 3-4 months to get an approval ratio of 80%+ for each batch of upload... More

It's that time between Christmas and New Year when people start to think about making their New Year resolutions, often focussed on dieting and/or stopping smoking. I'm no exception to making them myself, likewise breaking them!
My New Year resolutions are going to... More
We are always happy when good changes occur. When still a newbie, we are pleased when the picture is approved. So glad when sold. So glad when it increased to level 2... level 3.. 4 ..and 5.. then delighted when payment is received for the first time.
This is my first... More
Dear fellow photographers,
What do u have to say on this ??
"Real Photographers are Passionate Travelers "
Personally speaking, I love traveling and have visited all most all the popular spots, including a few lesser known ones also, in South India, because... More
I recently started this journey in photography and microstock which I'm really glad I did. I have little photos still since Photography is still part-time in my life but I do hope to improve my skills and knowledge in the subject as I go on. Here are some of my pics and... More
finally i have reached to a new milestone: 300 uploads.
Wuh, this is really a long journey, however i believe that if we just be patience and don't give up, for sure one day we will reach to our destination, our dream will come true! Once again thanks dreamstime and all... More
After coming back from the wild safari, we traveled through places which seemed to be the factory of world's dust. It felt like we were traveling through time as we've seen the (minimal) modern culture fading away. We've started seeing people living in mud houses, traveling... More
Today I reached my first 50 files approved on what I consider to be the best stock site on the web. The people here have been a great help to this rooky photographer. Of course I also had much encouragement along the way from family and friends. To all those who have made... More
One of the many benefits of photography is that we can chronicle our journeys. As a stock photographer, I try to incorporate my travel into my quest to produce high quality stock images that will meet some need of the market.
At present, I'm working on a project in the... More
