Scoopt Shutdown...

Bad news!! Scoopt soon will closed the business.
and this e-mail from Scoopt Team:

Dear Scoopt members,

I am sorry to inform you, as a member of Scoopt, that we have decided to close the business. We will not be taking in any more imagery after February 6, 2009 and will close the upload application. We will also cease licensing any imagery through Scoopt on that date.

Our experience with Scoopt has taught us some very valuable lessons. We remain convinced that there is a demand for this kind of material as part of an editorial product, but for the moment are choosing to focus our energies within Getty Images on our core products in news, sport and entertainment.

It has been a pleasure working with Scoopt, your pictures have provided a fascinating snapshot of the circumstances in which you find yourselves and have added valuable viewpoints to the news service we provide our customers on a daily basis.

A holding page will remain until March 6, 2009 but from February 6 we will not be accepting any new imagery and so the upload path will be closed, and the galleries shut down, at which point all rights over the photos revert to you, the copyright holders.

All Scoopt content that also appears on Getty Images will initially be reviewed and any Scoopt member that has photos deemed to have longer term value on Getty Images will be offered a separate contract. To be clear, on February 6, 2009 all Scoopt content will be taken down from the Getty Images website and only be reposted, once the relevant contractual relationship with individual photographers is in place.

If your material is selected for continued inclusion on Getty Images, you will be contacted directly. We will be posting some FAQ’s on the website to try to answer any questions you may have, so please do refer to this section.

Please note that we will be retaining your contact details in order to service any outstanding payments that are due and in case there should be need for a further communication update. If you would like your details removed from the database, please respond to with the words Remove Details in the subject line, and citing your Scoopt member ID.

Please use the email for all correspondence regarding the closure of Scoopt

Thank you for all your enthusiasm and support which have made Scoopt such an exciting place to work.

From the team at Scoopt

Sell Your Photos to Press and Media

It pays to be in the right place at the right time, especially if you take the kind of photo that a picture desk editor wants to print. This is partly a question of quality -- see here for more on that -- but also, of course, a matter of photographing the right subject in the right way. There's no magic formula as such but the beauty of carrying a camera phone or a digital camera with you everywhere is that you're in a position to photograph anything that happens just about anywhere. Here are a few tips to help you on your way.

In general terms, your photo must be:
Topical, current, newsworthy and of interest to the wider public. Family and holiday photos are out!
The only photo or one of very few photos taken of a newsworthy event. This is what gives it its value.
In focus. Do practice with your camera or phone so you can get the best shot when the time comes.
Legal. Most countries have strict privacy laws, trespass laws and decency laws that you need to be aware of. If you break the law to get your scoop, we will not be able to license your photo.
Taken at no risk to yourself. Please do not place yourself in any danger just to get a photo. No hanging off bridges or buildings -- you could fall; no jumping into roads -- you could get run over; no confronting criminals -- you could end implicated in the crime and get arrested; and no wading into battles -- you might end up as the punching bag. Use commonsense at all times.

The absolute best, highest-value photos are those that capture a completely unexpected but sensational event, especially if the professional media are either not present or looking the other way. From a global disaster to a happening in your local town or a chance encounter with a celebrity… so long as a picture has interest, it has value.

To make life easier and to give you some ideas, we have split the kinds of photos we are looking for into categories. You'll be asked to choose which category best suits your pic at the point of uploading it.

The categories are:
  • Famous people
  • The Odd and Unusual
  • Important events in your community
  • Breaking news
  • Local news
  • Disaster

This was my first time to shot butterflies with my Canon EOS 400D. It was a lovely day, the sun was so bright. I did some edit with Photoshop, in finishing, in order to get wonderful colors.
