    by Enviux | 11th of December, 2013

  • Starting from Scratch

    by Inspirationgame | 26th of March, 2011

    I wonder how many of you are like me. I started submitting photos and illustrations to Dreamstime in October 2009 with no camera fine tuning nor illustration making experience whatsoever. To give you an idea, my first 200 photos were all rejected at once because of distorted... More

  • Photography vs. Golf: persistence & patience...

    by Abubjsm | 1st of July, 2010

    It's been 40 days since I first join DT as a photo contributor. It's certainly not a "piece of cake" kind of business, I guess. I have uploaded around 100 photos to DT and only 19 photos got accepted and go on-line. This is one of the first batch of 4 photos got... More

    Finally made this long awaited goal... My 600th Image is now online. I have pushed out the deadline a couple times over the past few months. Maybe I made to aggressive of a goal, then again maybe not and I just let life interfere. I don't expect to make the 1000 by... More
