Celebrating my 4th anniversary at DREAMSTIME

posted on 1st of november, 2009

Four years ago one of my friends asked me if I want to make some extra money at Home and I said why not? He told me about Dreamstime and for me it seemed very interesting but I told him that I don't have money right now to spend for a professional camera and I don't even have the knowledge working in photo editing programs. He smiled a little and told me: " Don't worry because you work as a 3d designer and you have the skills and knowledge of 3d modeling and rendering and these sites accept computer generated illustrations too.

-- so this way I had a chance to start working with microstock sites, DREAMSTIME being the first stock site I started contributing with. I was very pleased about my first uploaded images that I had already made before becoming a contributor because almost all of them were accepted.

As the time flows I rendered almost every state's flag and a few other isolated objects and some backgrounds. I didn't had enough time to enjoy what I love to do because I had to spend more and more time at my primary workplace.

After 2 years, my budget from microstock sites got to the point when I afforded to buy a semi-professional camera so I went and purchased a Canon EOS 400D and that day I felt that I reached my FIRST GOAL in this business.

It took a while until I learned how and what to shoot and most of all to learn editing and enhancing photos. --- by the way if you look into my portfolio you won't find many photos taken and this will disclose that my very hobby is making 3d illustrations.

A few month ago I decided that I'm gonna grow my portfolio up to 1000 images in less than a year.

~ and this is my new BIG CHALLENGE ~

All I want to say in the end to All Contributors and Designers, You can make things happen JUST BELIEVE in it.
