I want to stop being exclusive


posted on 1st of august, 2013

I have sent several emails to DreamsTime, requesting stop being exclusive.

I have received no response. In my portofolio still appearing as exclusive.

How do I stop being exclusive and become a photographer NOT Exclusive?.

I have over 400 new images to upload. I wish to increase my portofolio, but as a photographer not exclusive. Took a month waiting for answers from DreamsTime.
I hope you can take time to answer.

I am grateful to DT, for allowing me to be exclusive. But now the exclusive format, I no longer is profitable for my.

To continue providing and growing my portofolio of DT, I want to go back to being a photographer not exclusive.

Thank you very much and I hope your kind response.

Hi Tangie:
You speak Spanish? It would be easy for me to contact you in my native language :-)
Do not know your mail. How do I contact you?

I think at some stage every photographer or designer who is exclusive considers this matter - about a year ago I went through the same process with the result to stay - and do more for my portfolio - and see - now I'm glad I did both - stay and do more :)

Good luck, I stopped being exclusive for two months because I had some spare time, and my sales dropped to 1/3 of what I normally getting. I started working in othe sites, but didn't see any sales in two months, of all the sudden my spare ended and I decided to cancel in other sites and apply again to be in exclusive here.

excuse me, but I don't think this is a good idea. My opinion is that in the future all microstock agencies will have exclusive contributors because these are their real future (one of my images, for example - I'm an exclusive in dreamstime - can be purchased only here and NOT in other agencies), so exclusive contributors will have a better treatment in the next years.

This future has already begun (I think it's started a sort of "big war" between all agencies), so it's not a good idea stop to be an exclusive at this point. I don't stop to be exclusive: please, think about it.

I suggest you to continue to be exclusive, but also to find other ways to sell Your creations, for example searching direct buyers or similar.

Kind regards,
G.E.

It takes a while. Have you checked your junk/spam folder in email. Occasionally mine throws a DT email into junk.

Thanks for your comment, Miraclemoments. I always check the SPAM filters. To keep email useful. That is not the problem.
