  • The business woman in stock photos:the strong, the smart, the graceful

    by Tangie | 22nd of September, 2017

    Times are changing and so is the woman's place in business. From secretary to CEO, we now see more women at the helm of major companies than ever before and the perception of the woman's role in business has clearly shifted from marginal to central. What about... More
  • Catching ZZZZZ's

    by Ellenboughn | 21st of October, 2008

    Photos of models sleeping or relaxing have a multitude of uses. How can you ensure that you include the major concepts associated with sleep in your images? Consider how the photos will be used: for vacation promos, stress-relieving activities, sleep clinics and pharmaceutical... More
  • Earth Day 2009

    by Ellenboughn | 13th of May, 2008

    Earth Day ’08 is over. It’s time to get ready for next year. By all accounts 2009 will be “Earth Year” as all aspects of life are now increasingly examined for their impact on the environment. You will want to photograph iconic eco-products as well as using them... More

  • Girls Just Want to Have Fun

    by Ellenboughn | 16th of January, 2008

    Hotels in major business centers and cities empty out on weekends as do resorts in slow seasons. As a result many promote packages geared to special groups/interests in order to fill empty rooms. One of the fastest growing hotel and tour packages is for women only. Men have... More
  • PEACE

    by Ellenboughn | 27th of December, 2007

    All across the world in many countries the time between Christmas and the first week of the New Year is traditionally a time of celebration and reflection. It’s a time of hope, family and travel. I’m taking the week off for the same reasons. I have a blog ready in the... More
  • The Trendspotting Trend*

    by Ellenboughn | 16th of August, 2007

    Traditional stock photo agencies are heavily vested in ‘creative research’. This is the stuff that informs expensive stock productions and drives editing guidelines. The biggest stock producers look for sociological and economic trends that will impact general image needs... More
  • Alice in summer

    by Tangie | 25th of July, 2007

    Over the next week or so, I'll continue a short course in keywording the Dreamstime way. I can't promise that our guide will take all the tedium out of the job but if you follow it, the time you spend in adding data to your images should improve your downloads and the process... More
  • Not Just a Pretty Face

    by Ellenboughn | 9th of March, 2007

    Facial expressions send strong messages about what an image is trying to say...what the image is about. Unfortunately, a model's lack of expression can sometimes cause the photo to say next to nothing. One expression to avoid is the pouty-pouty runway model blank look that... More
  • Autumn compensations

    by Jaquiht | 15th of October, 2017

    For most of the year, I yearn for the butterflies and dragonflies to come along and cheer me up with the opportunity to take photos of the places that they recently left. However, autumn has plenty of compensations as I embark on the long wait until next Spring:   All... More
  • Learn from the refusals

    by Gagyeos | 4th of October, 2017

      Darn, my photo got refused. Never mind, I will make another one and submit it when I catch some time. STOP. That is not a good thing to do. Have you at least checked the email you received based on refusal or you've just deleted it after reading the subject line?... More
  • First touch with new full frame DSLR Nikon D850

    by Zayacskz | 2nd of October, 2017

      Dear Dreamstimers, I would like to share my experience with new full frame flaghsip from Nikon, model D850. To be honest, full frame isn't my "weapon of choice" due to its price level, weight and size - and it counts lenses also. As almost everyday user of APS-C... More
  • School Attendance

    by Jaquiht | 17th of September, 2017

    It’s the time of year when I traditionally use my photography to help local schools to achieve their targets.   The dragonflies and butterflies are starting to hide away for another year, so I am turning my macro lens towards the ground in search of photogenic fungus.... More

    by Dliapiara | 17th of July, 2017

        Products from plasticine - a fairy-tale character and a vase with several colors. These are my first works in this way so please do not judge strictly, but in fact I do not think that everything is so bad :) But I do not expect big sales, because none of my photos... More

    by Jerichardson6 | 3rd of July, 2017

    I'm just starting out. I've made exactly $4.47 from selling stock photography so far. Alas, none of that is on Dreamstime. Apparently the search algorithms on other sites are more favorable to me than this one. I'm not quitting my day job. I started out by simply uploading... More
