Looks like photo community EyeEm are preparing to going direct with image sales for it’s 50,000 contributing photographers on a platform called Market. EyeEm partnered Getty Images last year for a little ‘Beta’ selling, seems that went well so they are batting on direct now.
From their announcement: Photography community EyeEm has launched Market, its newly developed inhouse platform that allows global members to make their photos available for purchase online. Whether taken with a mobile device or captured through an external camera, EyeEm users can now earn real money from the photos they take. For publishers, editors, brands, and anyone else with a need for highquality authentic photography, EyeEm Market provides access to over 50 million images, with new photos added on a daily basis. Pricing is simple, starting at $20 for a standard (editorial and commercial) license, or $250 for extended commercial use, with all revenue split 50/50 between the photographer and EyeEm.
After a period of beta testing that included a deal to distribute a gallery of community images via Getty Images EyeEm Market is now fully integrated on both the EyeEm iOS & Android apps, as well as the supporting web dashboard, to easily allow users to manage their image library and make photos from their profiles available for sale.
