Exclusive Representation For Microstock Photographers
Posted on 1/4/2011 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version |
2011 may be the year when the stock photo industry returns to the idea
of exclusive representation -- specifically, being exclusive with a
microstock agency. For many year the widely held belief has
been that the way to maximize returns was to get your images represented
by many distributors. Now, iStockphoto’s has developed an exclusive strategy that may bring
about a change in this way of thinking. While there are several
downsides for image producers to the iStock strategy, the upsides may
more that compensate for the difficulties.
