Interested in becoming a contributor to Tetra Images?
Tetra Images is a stock network representing an elite group of professional stock photographers. It markets Royalty Free images through one of the strongest agency networks in the world, including Getty, Corbis, Masterfile, Alamy, Mauritius, and many others on all continents.  Tetra provides its RF contributors a royalty rate of 40%. Coupled with its extremely wide distribution, this results in some of the highest photographer earnings possible in the traditional stock photography marketplace.  Although we handle a wide range of subject categories, Tetra Images is recognized as the RF source for commercially relevant imagery with strong conceptual themes.  We are seeking new contributors who can re-imagine key advertising concepts with a fresh twist

Tetra was founded by veteran stock photographer, Tom Grill, as a place for photographers to have the widest distribution coupled with high royalty returns. Prior to founding Tetra Images, Tom was founder and principle photographer for Comstock for over twenty years. His vast experience on both the business and contributor side of the agency equation is the main reason for the high success of the Tetra brand. Photographers who join the Tetra team can expect experienced guidance from a team of creative and business professionals that is second to none in the world. At Tetra we are committed to producing the best selling stock images in the world -- period. If you think you would qualify for inclusion in the Tetra contributor roster, you can email us at: contributor@tetraimages.com.
