Got an Assignment File in at the Last Moment

posted on 23rd of october, 2013

I've rarely gotten assignment photos accepted so I almost didn't bother the other day when I saw the latest one. It was the last possible day to upload one but I figured I'd give it a try and I got this one accepted. I'm excited and hoping it will get some votes now that it's in there. There are some excellent photos for the latest concept and others with First Date as the first encounter theme so the competition is tough.

I wish I could have uploaded editorial photos too - I had people shaking hands with and meeting President Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton including one with the former president high-fiving a little kid which would have been really cute but I love this photo which shows a young couple in love and having fun so I've very happy that it was accepted. I have to delete the old copy which has already sold a few times.

I like having the option of making files exclusive to dreamstime even if the rest of my work is on other sites since those exclusive files seem to do well and getting some views via the assignment is always a big help.

Hope you check out the assignment submissions. Though the link says winners voting is still open: See all the assignment files here

Long ago trying assignments damaged my acceptance ratio....... its a risk unless you've got really excellent, outstanding shots.

About me

Since my grandmother put a camera in my hands at the age of six, I've been hooked. Curiosity and passion for new experiences keep me from narrowing my work to one specialty so I shoot just about everything. My portraits and travel photographs have graced the cover of various local and regional magazines and newspapers and have appeared in national publications here in my native USA to as far away as Russia. Since I started shooting stock photographs a couple of years ago, I have split my time between taking photos for my editorial, advertising and individual clients and giving myself ass... [Read more]
