Not so long time ago I started working with Dreamstime as an exclusive contributor. I never had any satisfying income with print sales so when I had a chance to go with stock images / photography, I took it. And I love it... It's wonderful to do something you truly love as your profession.
But being exclusive has its own rules. I shut down my stores on Zazzle and Redbubble which never had any sale - completely deleted my accounts. Here on deviantArt I put everything in storage - that's the fastest way to remove all images from print sales also. But if the images still keep appearing on google image search then I might be terminate my account here too. This is serious this time... Because I don't want any trouble. It's fine to have a portfolio and pages on social sites. It's ok to have a portfolio here too - but I only sell my work through Dreamstime. So if you can't see me here one day, don't panic. I don't know if keeping images in storage can prevent them appearing on image searches (at least after some time passed and cache cleaned) - if it is then I can keep my dA account.
Again I'm giving the links to my profiles on other social sites, you can add me there if you still didn't...
Thanks for reading, have a great day everyone...
