Milestone: 10 000 photos online!

posted on 14th of may, 2017

Finally! The 10 000 photos milestone achieved! Since 9 000 photos online it took 7 month... and since I have posted the 1st photo (July 2010) it was almost 7 years...

The 10 000th photo:

I think it´s quite representative photo for this milestone - sleeping dog :-).
I took this photo in open-air museum in Wologai village on Flores in Indonesia. It´s open air museum, but people are still living there.


To this achievement was long way. From the 1st photo

Photolee8: What I have submitted I track in my computer (I have sorted photos). What was accepted and what was rejected I keep just in Dreamstime.

Tgedwards: Unfortunately(?) not. It´s still just my hobby. But it makes some money to family finance :). And also it costs some...

Babar760: Latest photos I have in my portfolio are sold more than the older ones, except few photos that are already sold several times.

Hi Thorken, Great to hear that you have uploaded 10,000 images. Does this mean you are now making a full time living from Stock photography? At what point did it become viable? What would be the average monthly earnings? How many images would you estimate would have to be accepted for this to be a "real" job?

Thank you and all the best.

I agree with Babar760. I would slow down with uploads to see a better ratio of downloads per image. It is tempting to upload pictures though, and congrats, 10,000 uploads is a lot of work. Wish you more downloads.
