Accepted as a Dreamstime Exclusive Photographer

posted on 20th of september, 2011

I had spent some time deciding whether or not to become exclusive whilst working towards the minimum 50 image portfolio.

Having read views for and against I decided to go for it as I prefer to deal with just the one agency rather than trying to upload to and manage several.

My acceptance arrived just a few minutes ago. I am now looking forward hopefully to improved sales and higher commission on non subscription sales.

Incidentally, for anyone else applying: after clicking the link to apply I had been deliberately not uploading any more images so that I could get the 0.20 upload bonus for all new images after I became exclusive. This was a waste of time - Dreamstime gave me the upload bonus for all of my portfolio at the time of acceptance, rather than just for images uploaded afterwards, a very welcome suprise.

About me

I have been taking photographs for many years. I started out with black and white film and a wet darkroom, and whilst I do miss that now I can also see the advantages of converting to digital. I believe that over those years the standard of my photography has improved which is why I have decided to begin submitting images to Dreamstime. I have many images which I am confident will be of the required standard, but I also have plenty of ideas for new images to create and/or find.
