The 21st episode of PhotoNetCast is out. In this special episode the Flickr Collection on Getty is discussed.
Take a listen:
PhotoNetCast #21 – The Flickr/Getty Partnership
From the PhotoNetCast site:
On January 21, Flickr made a second announcement stating that invitations to Flickr users to start submitting the “chosen” images to Getty were being sent en masse.
What does this all mean to photographers, either pros or amateurs, and specially to those that are not so much into the photography business and want to get a foot on the door?
In this episode we try to approach the issues and look at the pros and cons of accepting such invitations.
Jim published on his blog his own view where he mentions that he is not going to accept the Flickr/Getty invitations. To provide some balance to the discussion, we have the pleasure of having as guest Dave Wilson, a serious amateur who wants to start monetizing his work and sees the Flickr/Getty invitations a good opportunity.
