- Interview with Rick Becker-Leckrone, CEO of BlendImages:
Often opportunity comes from what one might perceive as a difficult situation. [...]
We started with no images and of course, no revenue. About 4 ½ years in we have about 80,000 images, over 70 photographers and sales just over 6M a year. It’s been a great ride so far. [...]
Yeah, I think it was Jonathan Klein, CEO of Getty Images who gave me a friendly reminder that “co-ops” are hard to run. Or maybe he said “you’re f’ing crazy” - something like that.
