Photographers Direct: New Representation

10 Apr 2010 12:44PM   Views : 264 Unique : 182

Photographers Direct are pioneers in the field of 'Fair Trade Stock Photography'. Unlike the raft of Micro Stock sites out there, which profit from the exploitation of photographers (usually paying the photographer 20 cents per dollar), Photographers Direct allow the photographer to negotiate a price with the buyer, and keep 80% of the sale price.

"Micropayment sites sell your work for peanuts and give you the shells"
Quote from World of Stock.

You will NEVER find any of my work on Micro Stock sites such as iStock, Fotolia, Dreamstime, Shutterstock etc. I believe that the rise of such sites is destroying the option of stock photography as a viable stream of revenue for photographers the world over. Photographers pay to buy and maintain their equipment, photographers pay for their travel costs to capture images and it is the photographer who should profit from the sale of the resulting images.
