Dreamstime is a micro-stock website where photographers like me can sell their pictures. Since March 2009 I am a member and since a couple of years I am an exclusive photographer with Dreamstime. The amount of money I make out of it is, however, nothing compared to the investment in equipment. What is rewarding for me is getting pictures accepted by Dreamstime and that somebody actually buys a picture. The acceptance procedure is quite tough (my acceptance ratio is now 65%). This means that on the average two-third is accepted.
Above you see my first accepted picture. It is the river the Maas flowing through Maastricht at night. My currently last accepted picture is of my last visit to Beijing. It is one of the buildings of the Prince Gong Mansion.
In total I now have 350+ pictures accepted, ranging from landscapes, cityscapes, seascape, and portrait. In total I sold almost 250 licenses. The best selling picture is of Budapest covered by snow (12 times).
Although the pictures in this blog look like they are of low quality (this is needed for a fast download) the original pictures are of high quality. Please contact me if you are interested in one of them. Here are all my Dreamstime images in chronological order.
