Exclusive DT Photographer

Hello everyone, after reading all the posts and finally making a decision to go exclusive with Dreamstime, it happened today. Really happy I made this decision, plus I did not know that it would be retroactive. What a surprise.

Yah, i was also suprised by the retro payment when I went exclusive.
Here's hoping exclusivity treats you well neighbor.

Thank you Daddio,

I love your portfolio. Wishing you the best also. p.s. I was born in Russell so in a bigger sense we are neighbors.

There are very good sales of quite some big exclusive guys. You'd be happy when sales keep coming. :)

I wouldn't congratulate on going exclusive right now. I would, when you get good benefits of it. I find myself loving extra revenue but then I find myself cursing exclusivity when sales slow down because it feels like I'm chained.
The upload bonus acts as consolation at times. :)
You'd enjoy the "feelings" of exclusivity. ;)

Thank you everyone, this is one of the reasons i chose DT for its great community.

Robinstockphotos, over some years I have been with other agencies and started here selling images in 2012, after six months here I decided I need more time shooting then being on the computer hence my decision to go with one agency. As for feeling chained as you mentioned I actually feel more liberated and unchained from my computer.

Best wishes to everyone.

It is great to have input from those who were not exclusive and decided to turn ones. I've never worked for another agency, and plan to be exclusive a long time here, I'm happy here.

Yes its a great community and Admin here! good luck! its a courageous move indeed. I wish myself that within Micro, exclusivity with one agency only would be enough.

best of luck.

Congratulations on your decision. I have never had any regrets--could never imagine the time it would take me to upload to several agencies. Besides I feel it dilutes the value of my images to have them on more than one site. Good luck with sales:)
Currently my primary cameras are a Fuji X-T2 and a Fuji X100F.
