Why Photographers are finally leaving Getty Images

April 10, 2013 — Leave a comment

Having gone through this decision in 2012 I completely understand the thinking here at Remi Thornton’s blog regarding Getty now giving away images and setting up consignment deals.  Getty has never ever had their photographers in mind in their long-term plans. Its all about the stock sales. They don’t respect photographers and they don’t really care about someones livelihood or families. Getty is at the top of blame list for gutting our industry and forcing a downward price spiral that is truly mind boggling and unprecedented in modern business. ( Unless of course you count the Banking Industry bringing us to a world economy collapse – but I digress…)
