My First Year

posted on 21st of january, 2009

I have just passed the anniversary of the day my first image went online here at Dreamstime. I just wanted to say that I am so happy to have found this site and this outlet for my creativity. I would also like to thank all the buyers and all the other contributors who have made me feel welcome and have helped so much along the way.
This was my first image accepted, and 2,827 Downloads and 1381 uploads later...

This is my favorite of my last images accepted: Thanks again.

About me

Art has always been a part of my life. Photography was a natural part of the evolution. I have a closet full of cameras and lenses, including a 3D camera. All of which are gathering dust since digital cameras came along and changed the world. For the past 10+ years I have been trying to learn all I can about post production and digital art. Even after all these years, I know I have not even begun to scratch the surface of all there is to know. And so, the journey continues.
