  • An Approach for Building Your Portfolio

    by Wisconsinart | 14th of July, 2010

    It's one thing to sit down and think of ideas to submit for stock, but I see a lot of people taking the same approach as I do: We mainly shoot what we know. Specifically, we work within our comfort level and skillset. I don't have a studio nor do I have access to models so... More

    Yesterday I celebrated my 5000th sale!! When I joined here in september 2007 I had not a photos archive to upload and I didn’t know anything about vectorial graphic. I started from scratch. I learned day by day here and by myself. So, the little “moral” of the story... More

    by Terhox | 21st of May, 2010

    For me it's quite an achievement to reach first 100 sales, it's my first real milestone. It took quite a long time, but when I moved fully to Dreamstime, I have got many times more sales. Sometimes it's hard to believe, that here are over 8 million images, and still my small... More

    Wow, it took me over a year, but I finally got a level 2 image! It's actually a pretty new one and is selling really well on all my sites. The best part is that 40 minutes after reaching level 2, it got downloaded again - it sure felt nice to receive $1.73 for a Small DL.... More

  • So happy!!! I am getting approvals immediately after submission :)

    by Goldution | 19th of March, 2010

  • 200 Sales!

    by Nstanev | 26th of February, 2010

    Well, not a huge deal, but a couple of good sales last night pushed me past the 200 DL's milestone. It doesn't take a lot to get me excited, I guess. :) I also ended up with a BME in terms of revenue. RPD is fairly dismal, though. This was the lucky 200th sale: More

  • Growing up together

    by Olyashevchenko | 24th of February, 2010

    When I started to be a contributor just a bit more than a year ago, I didn't have any clue what professional illustration is like and what I should do to create beautiful and unique picture. I didn't know how to draw people and my first attempts to make them weren't great... More
