Dreamstime vs. Traditional photography

posted on 4th of september, 2007

In a recent survey we have asked buyers who used traditional agencies before finding Dreamstime, specific questions regarding their experience. The questions were chosen after reading several articles written by analysts of the traditional industry such as Chris Ferrone, Jim Pickerell, Andy Goetze or Dan Heller. Although they all give pertinent and wise critique it is sometimes difficult to study this area of the industry without actually being within it. In absence of actual data and stats, like the ones we have access to, as well as perfect knowledge of the site's features, some of their articles may end up being...

This type of Q&A is always invaluable regarding the type of response the buyers get from a particular photo site and lets us photographers ascertain if we are fulfilling the buyers requests.

Dreamstime becomes a General Member of PACA

posted on 6th of september, 2007

I have just received an email from Ms. Cathy Aron, Executive Director of the Picture Archive Council (PACA). One year after the initial application, Dreamstime membership was approved by the Board to move from provisional to general membership status! Starting from today, we are happy to announce that we are officially and permanently members of PACA.

In a time with so much controversy about who is honest and who is not, this surely represents a great achievement for our community. It is another step we have taken and I guess nothing is more pleasing than seeing our work being acknowledged by the top organization in our industry.

Thank you PACA for the great news and thank you [link=https://www.dreamstime.com/photographers]...

Brightqube - see David fighting Goliaths!

posted on 20th of september, 2007

The David fighting Goliaths! Power to the people!

A news leaked out yesterday. A beta site was revealed, you can see it here, before the official press release. It is called BrightQube. I must confess I don't know why, but I can guess: it has a clever navigation and a bright idea: it is the first platform to put images from our market to compete on equal grounds with Goliaths.

The leak was just published by lots of blogs, making a quiet buzz within the industry. No big red titles in CAPS, but it is a quiet revolution. One that Dreamstime succeeded to pioneer as the exclusive David.

Dreamstime images compete on the same homepage with exquisite images from elite traditional agencies - they compete with lots of great images, stunning work from professional collections. But...

Sweet! They certainly need to index more images for "Bulgaria" though :P

About me

More than 15 years ago, I've started my own revolution in design and photography. It was a bet I made with myself to see if passion can become a way of life. It has for me. Dreamstime is one of the world's leaders in stock photography, although it has started with an obsolete, now out-of-date digital camera and my modest collection of photos. But I pursued my dream and now Dreamstime, apart from being an agency and a business, is the largest gathering place for passionate photographers and designers. I like to think that we're not offering photographers just a way to earn money out of their... [Read more]
