    A new journey

    by Mjs8282 | 11th of September, 2016

    My Dreamstime Journey

    by Kheng1987 | 21st of July, 2016

    I have an account with Dreamstime since 2008. It is a long time and I don't have many photos to show for it. I love taking photos. It serves as a record of places I have visited and people I met. So I thought why not sign up and see if I can make some sales from something... More

    60

    by Thanakrits15 | 23rd of December, 2015

    60 images. I've never actually thought I would make it this far in my adventure with stock photography. I can still remember the days when I used a point-and-shoot, totally unaware of the skills of photography. Time really does fly doesn't it? I'm not really sure what... More

    Amazing Journey

    by Iheartcountryphoto | 8th of October, 2014

    Last year at this time, I had only been a member of DT for a few months, I felt a little like I was drowning trying to learn everything I could and "catch up". I was doing my best to get the 50 photos online so that I could become exclusive. A year later, I have 216 photos... More

    Out my Back Door

    by Amstrongphotography | 6th of April, 2014

    They always told me 'you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl' and that is true of me. I grew up in the back country of West Kentucky, nothing but fields and woods out our back door. I spent 7 years in the heart of St. Louis,... More

    Finding my way

    by Kimdeadman | 15th of June, 2012

    As I reach 24 accepted photos on Dreamstime I feel like I’ve climbed Mont Blanc. I set out with my little 350D a year or so ago and thought, ‘this will be easy; point, shoot, submit and perhaps earn a fortune.’ In reality I have faced raging storms (of frustration)... More

    Upload number 200 - what a journey!

    by Martingraf | 23rd of March, 2012

    It took me a bit over a year to gain my 200 uploads - today I did it. I'm usually a bit shy taking photos of people I don't know - so this one isn't really typical for me. But what I like about this pic is that it really tells a bit a story about the diversity of the people... More
