I thought this day will never come but finally today I've reached $2000 and I'm so happy. I've been a member at Dreamstime since October 29, 2007 and have seen many blogs of members reaching this milestone. These blogs have always been very encouraging for me so I'm writing this blog to encourage others. Just keep at it and persistent and you'll reach this milestone also. Over the two years here, I definitely learned a lot from DT and my photography skills have gotten better and better. I would like to take this time to thank DT and everyone that has helped me along the way.


Below is the photo the got me over $2000.

Hey JackrPerry. I'll give you some more info:

Stats for the Last 13 months:

$113.30 per month
2.92 uploads per month
217 uploads total

Now in term of hours. Hard to put into absolute since I would be normally taking photos and editing them anyway when I attend friend's weddings and when I travel. But I would say it takes about 2-5 minutes to edit a photo.

I hope that helps.

Hey Branko. Your portfolio is awesome and should not have any problems selling. You just need more exposure. Try entering next month's assignment. Read my blog about increasing exposure in my profile. I hope that helps.

payout sitting in your USD account. what a wonderful idea.
i should do the same thing next time. after all, i buy my studio equipment from US so it's wiser to leave the payout in a USD account.
btw, so glad you like the studio shots.
i enjoy shooting on location due to the freer ligthing of "God's studio", lol..
but studio ligthing does have its advantage of more control, ...
and you don't have to travel with your equipment ,
... or get outside in the freezing winter.
cheers and congrats again Retina !

Teresa, your product photos are so professional. You just need a bit more exposure and those photos should sell. Maybe write a blog about those. Check out my blog: Increase portfolio exposure for newbies It may help you out.

Wow Amazing, congratulations.... : ) I'm happy for you

Thanks Tan510jomast. Payout just sitting in my USD account until the exchange rate is more favourable. I currently have no studio equipment so my look into purchasing some. ;) Great studio shots by the way!
Posted by Tan510jomast on February 25, 2010
yes, congrats. it's nice to get paid for something you enjoy doing.
i just got my first payout, and i cannot wait for the day i get to $2000
as i have some studio equipment i am jealously eyeing to buy with $2000.
i am sure you've already spent the money, if not, you can also send some of it to me,lol..
