a "photo finish" celebration perharps?

posted on 28th of january, 2011

In a few days we celebrate Chinese New Year. Just over a month after we celebrated the julian New Year.
I like to show a compilation of my own creative works that touch some of the wonderful clients of Dreamstime who chose to use my photographs, and in turn escalated these respective images to be called my BEST SELLING IMAGES from my portfolio here as Tan510jomast since I started to be a contributor of Dreamstime.

A very big hooray

to the wonderful people who chose to use my work.
I look forward to 2011 and the new Chinese year to seeing more of my work serving your needs.

And Dreamstime too, naturally !

Herewith, in the order of merit, I present to you -

in reply to going exclusive

posted on 29th of january, 2011

I actually replied to one very well written blog on this topic.
But it was so long a reply that I thought, hell, maybe this should have been my new blog .
so here it is...

P.S. sorry for the cut and paste, as I am in a hurry to go out.



I am a working photographer with stock being a miniscule portion of my work schedule. ie. more active in winter months less active during summer when my work takes up almost 18 hours a day.
Going exclusive...

If stock photography is a hooby for you stay as an exclusive with DT ... But if you plan to be a bir actor in the industry start work with major agencies.

It is obvious that incomes from DT depends on exvl─▒sivity. However dont forget that , there are other agencies who can sell as good as DT.

And a second note. If you think that other agencies will accept your images which DT already approved , you are wrong !

Good luck

Yes, Mani my friend, it is all about money.
One would be fibbing to say one is in microstock just for fun or to see our photos on a page with tons of views and no downloads, or lots of downloads at very little commissions.
And what if one day I find Dreamstime or another top site paying me enough money to make it worth my while to put all my eggs in one basket?
I don't think it would take much to twist my arm to say yes, go exclusive. Like Egomezta chose, or Lcjtripod is contemplating.

Hi... I got the same thought too... I decided to go exclusive with DT, it had work very well for me... Good luck!

WINTERLUDE my first winter shoot

posted on 31st of january, 2011

dancing in the snow,
parents racing their children against other parents in sleigh race,
tobaganning down the ski slope with a giant rubber tire,
police on horse back ,
daddy piggybacking two kids breathing vapor watching no doubt
mommy racing sleigh ,etc..

they all look like fun , don't they?
but no one knows that I was freezing my you know what off , being a summer person, and worst, my naked hands were freezing from taking the shots.
i was dressed very warmly with layers from new winter clothings I got as Christmas presents from my best friend.
and i was famished with only a cup of coffee and some dried ginger for breakfast, or rather brunch.
i slept in from working with my...
