Why is the commission split different to Picfair’s usual split?

We use a 50/50 split on excess revenue, as we want our photographers to benefit from the distribution network we’ve set up just as much as we do. Including the asking price we pay our contributors, this means that our photographers are always getting the majority of the licence fee.


We feel that splitting additional revenue on this basis both rewards the photographer in line with Picfair’s principle that photographers should always receive more, and means we can cover the admin and legal costs associated with negotiating and sustaining a valuable third party distribution network.
