    So happy that my photos from my trip to Newstead Abbey have been accepted!         And this is my crowning glory for the day I think. I had to wait ages for this lovely peacock to display his feathers! I'm quite scared of birds and my camera doesn't have... More

    Why stock photography is not a hobby

    by Photographycornwall | 31st of May, 2016

    Okay, so it's been a while since my last post and, if you recall, my last DT blog was fairly negative in calling out people who do not pay for using stock images. That I'm afraid is a perennial problem, which isn't likely to go away any time soon. And anyway, I like to think... More

    How Dreamstime is breathing new life into my photography

    by Tuftedpuffin | 29th of April, 2016

    Several years ago, I used to sell my photography as prints. But the site I used is, long story short, dying. I put extra effort into promoting myself, upgraded my gear so I'd have an extra "edge" (I felt I had outgrown mine anyway), flew to Australia and pushed myself that... More
