What is Netphoto™/NetPhotograph™?

NetPhoto is a concept in marketing news & stock images via digital distribution, and collectable prints via mail order. The digital section of Netphoto is a complete photo agency, offering news, sports, feature, travel and personality pictures online, available for immediate access. Using the latest technologies, Netphoto markets to publications, new media, advertising, corporate and multimedia.

On the Photo Gallery section, Netphoto allow you view the work of select photographers, order prints and pay online. Delivery of prints is made within 2 - 4 weeks of placing orders.

How do I become a contributor to the digital distribution of my work?

Fill in the registration form and provide a short bio-data along with select images and a story. Once we have established contact with you, you can start sending us pictures. The photographers achieving the most consistent sales have submitted several hundred pictures to begin with. This helps establish a good base for sales. Inform everyone you know in publishing and photography about Netphoto. More newspapers and publications signing up maximizes the chance of selling your images.

For the time being, inclusion in the Photo Gallery is by invitation only.

I'm working for a photo agency, newspaper or magazine. Can I also work with Netphoto?

No, you can't work directly with Netphoto, if your agency is on contract with Netphoto. But you can have a specific Portfolio, which presents your particulars and your complete work. If you are an independent photographer you can work directly with Netphoto.

Equipments needed to work with Netphoto?

You have to transmit digitalized pictures, so for starters you need a good computer-PC or MAC with at least 64MB (RAM) , a film scanner and an Internet e-mail account to send files to our system. Then you need to register with Netphoto. To work on the pictures your computer should have Adobe Photoshop software. The scanning of images should be at least 10 by 8 inches at 200dpi, which equals approximately 8 megabyte tiff file that you should convert to jpeg format (jpg or jpe). Save your jpeg files at level #6 or medium-high resolution jpeg in Photoshop. This file is what you transmit to us by email, modem to modem or FTP (file transfer protocol).

Does it matter if I use a MAC or PC?

No. We use both systems.

How much will I get paid?

You will get a commission on sales. When we sell a photograph you receive 55% of the sale.

When will I get paid?

At the end of each month we send out statements to photographers. Even if you don't make any sales, you do receive a statement from us.

Apart from news pictures, Netphoto also accepts feature material, travel & destination pictures, people & personalities, social issues, cityscapes and sports.
