Application for RegistrationSkip to the form
We welcome applications from professional photographers who want to join our team and sell their images and services through Photographers Direct.
As a Photographers Direct seller you will be able to upload low-res versions of your images to the website and through titles and keywords get them into the search engine. If a buyer finds your image and wants to purchase it, they will be put in touch with you and you can negotiate a deal. On completion of your sale, Photographers Direct will invoice you for a 20% commission on the purchase price. Here are some examples of recent sales made in this way.
Photographers Direct sellers can also showcase their work on our website in portfolios that show off their specialty talents. These are attractive to buyers who are looking for photographers with a particular specialisation and / or location. If you receive an assignment through your portfolio, Photographers Direct will invoice you for a 10% commission. Here is an example of one of our photographer's portfolios.
Buyers also frequently post requests for specific images to our website. As a seller, you can be alerted to requests in your specialisation, and upload images to these requests. Sales you make through this are invoiced at 20% commission. Here are the images being requested by buyers right now.
We do not charge subscription fees for our services, our commission rates are much lower than the other agencies, and we do not encourage you to sell your work for peanuts just to get a sale. We are photographers ourselves and we are committed to getting you a fair price for your images.
The registration process is simple. Fill in the form below and click 'register me as a seller', and your details will be emailed to us for consideration. We only take on high-quality professionals, so we also would like to see examples of your work. If we like what you do, you will be contacted shortly and your registration confirmed. Here are the kinds of images that get us excited. Can you match or better them?
All data we keep about you is covered by international data protection laws and will only be disclosed in order to facilitate the smooth process of your sales. Only prospective buyers who have registered their own details with Photographers Direct will see your contact data, and administrators at Photographers Direct looking after your account and sales. We will never pass on your data to any other third party (unless legally obliged to do so).
