My DT story

posted on 1st of september, 2010

I learned that photos and drawings can be sold through the Internet somehow about 8 years ago (I was 17 years old), don't recall any agencies of that time though. I tried my luck in microstock as soon as I managed to buy my first camera (I was 20 at the moment). I don't really remember what's my first agency was but it was not DT, I'm sure.

Thank you.
