- ASMP to Getty Photographers: Time to Bail.
Mopsik told PDN in a telephone interview that he's not telling Getty photographers what to do. "I say evaluate your relationship. If it works for you, stay there. If it doesn't, now is the time to look elsewhere."
"I see this as a strategic move on Getty's part to cull out their contributors," to focus on those who actively produce and those who are willing to go along with Getty's marketing strategy, Mopsik says. But he hardly faults the agency, adding, "If images haven't sold in 36 months, what would you do?"
