Asking for opinions on a bespoke photo arrangement for clients - rather like the IS custom work I think.
Anybody else get it? IS it legit?

if you're asking if it's authentic: it is.

Hello,

We are working on a new platform to help you find more customers in your area and offer photographs on request.

We want you to be the first to participate.

Please take a look at the information below and answer a few questions in a short survey to let us know if you are interested in our new platform.

Project overview
The new platform will help you find customers who need photo shoots in your area. You will work according to their instructions and we will take care of the rest. For each project undertaken, you will receive a fee of between $ 50 and $ 300 or more for each photo shoot completed.

What makes the new platform exceptional?
We will take care of everything from organizing the photo shoot to image processing. This platform will offer you more opportunities to find new customers, expand your portfolio and, ultimately, save a lot of time in dealing with the complexities involved in organizing photo shoots. As an advantage, you'll spend less time promoting yourself because we'll do it for you.

How the platform will work:
1. Select an available project in your area and candidates
2. Present yourself in a place that we will specify in a day and at a time that are convenient for you and the customer
3. Make the photo shoot and upload your photos
4. Get payment immediately

Sounds good to you?
Let us know if you are interested in our new platform for photographers!

If you want to be part of another community that offers you the chance to monetize thanks to your photos, fill out a short survey to be the first to try out the beta when it is up and running.


I don't link the survey because of course it's a beacon link and I don't want to be tracked here.
Will it be a dumb down challenge/competition/race every time? a Dutch auction (unique bid auction) ?

Do they remember this is WORK ?

I've received today too, in good italian translation (my language of course) so it's legit I think.
I put it in my trash: prices are ridiculous for custom work request.

Only a complete moron would take up these offers from Getty and Depositphoto, Commercial Photography at slave labour rates.

The only ones who would benefit from this concept are the agencies and the customers.

Not a complete moron, H2O. Though very sceptical. If it turns out to be like the other similar scheme, typically 3 young models in a trendy bar for $50 (maybe - if they choose your image) then clearly it is of no interest.
On the other hand, $300 dollars for some local specialty food could be.
Or am I the only one looking for alternatives to the standard stuff, where ever more agencies are making it onto the 'not worth the effort' list?
