Hi guys, I wanna ask for help to verify information - I get mail from Lisa Sallusto that they are open new microstock agency - Onepixel stock, they are choosing just few contributors not all of them.
Contract to check is here -

https://webshare.cz/#/file/1s62lG3cgN [nofollow]
I can copy there an email what I get.

Any information to verify will be great. They have ready pages for contributors, - https://contributor.onepixel.com/ [nofollow]
but not ready page for customers.
Thanks for info

Another first post saying you've been headhunted by an agency (next to) no-one has heard of?

In the unlikely event you're serious: steer well clear!

First, they contact me over my pinterrest profile where I have photos linked to Shutter, then we speak by mail......
so what do you think?

Runaway!

Seriously, nothing on the site, no info, nothing on google.  Why would you even think about it?

Found some information about the company (in French) here:
http://entreprises.lefigaro.fr/onepixel-75/entreprise-840253942
and here:
https://www.societe.com/societe/onepixel-840253942.html
The company is very new, registered in June 2018.

And Lisa Sallusto is - or was - the "Head of Operation" of Fotolia Italy
https://it.fotolia.com/MediaCenter/Release (in Italian)
Not sure about her role, if any, in OnePixel.

Still no useful information about their new site.

It's being started by a couple of people who previously worked at Fotolia / Adobe Stock. They've tried to "recruit" me and another photographer I know. I had a long phone call with them some time ago, and all I can say is that I didn't want to support the project as they are trying to enter the market by seriously dumping the prices of stock photography.

It's the same people who were behind One Dollar Club at Fotolia if anyone remembers that.

My advice: Don't get involved. Let's all put an effort into not allowing agencies to dump prices to a level that is not sustainable for us as photographers.

If you look here and here  (or search Dollar Photo Club) you'll see the huge effort that lots of people put into driving a stake into the heart of that misbegotten enterprise. Except for anyone who came to stock licensing after that debacle, I'll wager that everyone here remembers that well (and not fondly)

I'll echo the advice to shun any operation dreamt up by founders of the Dollar Photo Club

I was also contacted by OnePixel.
In such cases I ask for compensation for my time and effort. Like Veer, Depositphotos and some other new agencies did at the time.
If the reply is no (and it was such from Onepixel) than sorry, no time wasting on my side.

We was also approached by them to join in. Told them we don't want to support dumping prices in any way.

Chad Bridwell who is part of the team was also part of the horrible Photo Dollar Club back in the days.

Gawd!!!   Not 'THE CHAD' as he used to sign at pre-AdobeFT on the forums. I immediately take a huge dislike to people doing that as it usually says something about the size of their EGO:D

I remember DPC, I deleted most of my port with Fotolia because of them
