24 Dec 2007 Dreamstime – Branded Free Stuff
My wardrobe is now bulging after the generous people at Dreamstime sent me a large box of branded free stuff. They included a range of t-shirts, and zippered jumper, caps and shoulder bags, and best of all, women’s t-shirts for my wife!
This first photo was taken by my wife at the back of a cottage where we stayed on tour of Tasmania. We took quite a few stock shots on the trip which we’re already preparing and uploading. Shooting with my wife allows us to combine ideas to get better shots than we would get if we shot separately. I suggested the composition for this shot and she suggested the angle. Together these two elements made this the stand-out shot of the shoot.
The Dreamstime clothing is very artistic and original. The quality is also impressive. You can see professional photos of all their apparel by searching for “dreamstime” in their database. Due to the number of requests they receive to buy their branded clothing, Dreamstime will soon be offering it for sale via their website.
Dreamstime’s portfolio is growing rapidly having recently approved their 200,000th image. CEO, Serban Enache, recently provided figures in his blog, saying that they’d approved 25,000 new images in a random three day period. Their popularity with contributors is easily understood when you look at the contributor offering: per-image exclusivity option, exclusive buyout option, sliding scale prices, editorial licenses, and the keymaster & keymentor programs.
