3 Years with Dreamstime

posted on 18th of january, 2014

It's my birthday at Dreamstime - its been now 3 years with them! I remember my first uploads very well - they all got rejected :) --- well, gladly this didn't stop me. 2 of my 'bestsellers' are editorial

and my penguin pic, which really shows what I like taking photos of, is 2nd but also my best earner. I'm really looking forward for the next few years and I also realize that I've been in many forums but this one with DT is my favorite. People treat each other with respect - fantastic atmosphere - reckon it's because we all have the same goal - be successful in what we love doing!
Special thanks to my wife Marion who always encourages me to go on and does all the keywording for me.

Thanks to all :) - and yes David, I had a bit the same situation after that - it then took so long to get the acceptance ratio over 50% then 60% and I'm not sure if I really ever make it over 70% - but that's the goal :).
Indydreams: I know to honour it :)
Eliane: I told her :)
You are all awesome!

Congratulations Martin...well done :)

You've done well and have a great portfolio. I also took about a month before my first image was accepted. The mistake I made was to be desperate to get images accepted in the early days and damaged my acceptance ratio.....it's difficult to recover from that .......... then I could only submit 5 images per week........ not the 5000 or so per week allowed now . David.
