My development at Dreamstime

posted on 12th of april, 2014

When I started at Dreamstime, I thought every times about potential sales. I read different tips many times, which photos I should upload to get high sales and approval ratio. But 4 month ago I decided, that I don’t want take photos without passion. I started taking the photos on my favorite themes (industrial, transportation, planes, trains). I started 2 new collections too (dreams of the sky and industrial and logistic in Russia).

I get enjoy with each photo in my portfolio. And my approval ratio grew up from 22% to 57%. Four month ago I had only 5 approved photos, now I have 51. I know, that it while modest progress. I don’t have any sales at the time. But I don’t worry about it. I get enjoy with my photos and I improve my skills. I am sure, that I can get some sales at Dreamstime in this way. I showed my “Dream of the sky collection” to different people and got some positive feedbacks. It’ s good creative impulse for my an I continue my job.

I was also out shooting planes this weekend. I find them very interesting. Im thinking about getting a license so i can fly ultra lights.

Im hopefully getting in to aerial photography, i really enjoy flying and photographing. My biggest passions in life.

I share your same passion in aircraft. Nice work, keep them coming.

photographing your passion is what it is all about my friend! if you are taking photos you hate just to have stock, then you will learn to not enjoy this passion. anything that is not enjoyable soon becomes a task and there goes the fun, which is what photography should be about. stick with your passion and enjoy what you do! nothing says you cant specialize, right?
