Fill a gap or niche

posted on 15th of august, 2008

Not to long ago I needed an image of a Mariachi for a poster.... right away I went on dreamstime and to my surprise found a very limited selection. Most were of some silly looking guy and others of a young boy wearing a sombrero (Interesting images but this is not a Mariachi).

I had to do without it and instead created my own illustration. I quickly uploaded my illustration and proceeded to create more, They are now online with dreamstime and available for your consideration.

I am happy to say the gap/niche is partially filled. I now find myself looking for such gaps to fill. It seems dreamstime is highly receptive to the type of images that they don't have.

Just a thought for your consideration. Regards!

Thanks studiocejia.. great tip ~ :)
there should be quite a few such niches to fill, especially relating to different cultures & ethnicity ..
