iStockphoto Reveals Contributor Earnings

Posted on 4/2/2008 by Julia Dudnik Stern | Printable Version | Comments (1)

After Getty Images disclosed iStockphoto revenues in a recent SEC filing, the founder of the leading microstock business offered additional information in a recent corporate blog post. "There is one number that makes us most proud, and it's not the $71.9 million in revenue we generated last year (although that is really, really exciting). The amazing thing is that we paid out $20.9 million to contributors last year," wrote Bruce Livingstone. This translates to a 30% average photographer commission, which is a higher cut than offered by many traditional agencies.
