Has anyone heard of Cavan Images? They're a company located in NY looking for photographers to hire. I found them and want to get involved in the company, but i'd like your thoughts about the company.
They require I fill out a W-9 form and send them my images through email. They also require a three year agreement to "1. Term – The term of this Agreement (the “Term”) will be effective for three (3) years from the Effective Date. The
Term will automatically renew for successive one-year periods, unless either Party terminates the Agreement subject to Section
So I dont want to commit to anything fishy, so any advice would be much appreciated! Btw, I'm located in California, if that clairifies why I would be concerned.
So this is what they say.
WHAT TO EXPECT AS A CAVAN PHOTOGRAPHER
You can shoot new images or submit from your archive.
On average, a well executed shoot will generate about 10 selected pictures, earning the photographer $500.
Resourceful photographers can double that amount to 20 images selected, earning them $1000.
Images containing people or property will need a valid, signed model release or property release to be considered. The only releases we
are accepting at this time are located here.
Two things to keep in mind when submitting from an archive:
-Images containing people or property will need a valid, signed model release or property release.
-The images will also have to be digital and of acceptable quality.
You can submit as many images as you'd like to sell to us. The rate for selected imagery is $50.00 per image, same rate as above.
Please check our image quality page to learn what we require for camera and image quality.
Thanks in advance!
