Stock Photographers Say Imagestate Is Ignoring Them

“London-based Imagestate announced a major investment this week to help the struggling stock image distributor.

It appears there is a lot of work to do. Some Imagestate photographers say the company is neither paying them nor responding to their complaints.

The Stock Artists Alliance, which has an ombudsman who works to solve problems on behalf of its members, says it has gotten no answers from Imagestate.

“SAA ombudsman Lee Sumner has repeatedly tried, without success, to contact Imagestate representatives and determine why contributors have received no payments, no statements, no returned images and no communication from the company,” the SAA said in a press release Tuesday.

PDN, which documented similar problems with Imagestate in April 2006, has also heard complaints about the agency recently.”
