Feedback from Getty contributors

Getty has invited me to submit images. I would appreciate hearing from first-hand contributors (not prognosticators nor friends of contributors, please) about their experiences, both positive and negative.

I've always been treated pretty well by Getty. They edit promptly, answer questions, and pay monthly.

Do you plan to produce images specifically for them (in your current style of course) or dip in to your archive?

All in all, I find Getty very demanding and very rewarding.

Best of luck with this!

I've worked with Getty on an ongoing basis and can only say great things about them. I'm always amazed how quickly they pay although I'm always upset about giving such a large portion of $ to the agency but I guess that's the name of the game  :P

Especially if you know that it wasn't always thus in stock.

Rob:

At first I wondered if you meant that "it wasn't always thus" that agencies took so much or paid so quickly, then I realized that both were correct.
