  • 500th upload

    by Phoenixci | 1st of August, 2013

    Like an infant it me a little over 16 moths to walk amongst other photographers, I often state that I am not a pro and I do not consider myself to be at a professional level in my photography, I am still learning and I am happy to see my progression as I gain experience.... More
  • Finally got the Koala

    by Swelsh1 | 9th of February, 2013

    Living in Australia provides some great opportunities to take wildlife photos. There is a location close by that has loads of Koala's. I must have a thousand photos but they are all looking up and the sky is overblown. We had guests a few weeks ago and we went to show... More
  • setting goals

    by Phoenixci | 8th of July, 2012

    Who would have believed a few months ago that I, a photographer without any training, would have reached over 100 photos accepted. The start of the journey was hard and after many refusals I wondered, (as many others have I am sure) if this was for me. I decided to take every... More
  • Exceed $25 earning - great to set milestones and achieve it

    by Kannichan | 27th of August, 2011

    I have been DT member since 2005 Oct. But I was disappointed with the rejection and stopped uploading. In 2010 May, as I changed job and had more free time on hand, I resumed and became active again. It came as surprise that sales did come in. It was so encouraging.... More
  • Good Things Come To Those Who Wait (and Keep Uploading)

    by Edayrit100 | 11th of August, 2011

    Have you been waiting forever for that first ever download? Or perhaps you've been stuck with download number 10 or even 100. Maybe some of your photos just haven't been downloaded at all. Do you feel like throwing in the towel? Sometimes, perhaps often, things just... More
  • 1000 - 7 = 993 Images Away From The Goal :)

    by Edayrit100 | 9th of August, 2011

    My latest upload to dreamstime: A shot of my own guitar. That brings the total number of images in my "portfolio" to 7 :) That's 993 images away from the goal of 1000 :) A few more years and a lot more gray hair and we'll get there :) See Article
  • Eureka : lessons learned in reaching $1000 today.

    by Davidwatmough | 2nd of November, 2010

    This is not a boast although naturally I am pleased that today I reached earnings of $1000 and I haven't withdrawn a cent yet. I joined Dreamstime in the Spring of 2009 and it took a while to get the first image accepted. Then I believed wrongly that scenic images would sell... More
  • Stock-Tuitiveness: The First Paycheck

    by Davewhitney | 5th of February, 2009

    Friends, I'm excited. I'm only 25 cents away from my first payout. Granted, I am a low producer here on Dreamstime, but I love it. I'm certainly not the model of productivity, but maybe an affirmation for the benefits of "stock-tuitiveness." Dreamstime has given... More
