I was contacted by the creative director of ODE magazine ( based in California), Eric Siry, in December last year to photograph the environmentalist Nick Rosen for them, here in the UK. The rate was low but I was free, so why not? Big mistake.
Though they used the work both in print and online and emailed to say they liked the images – my invoice is still unpaid. Indeed they no longer respond to any of my emails.
In eighteen years I have had some late payers but never a non-payer like these guys – been lucky maybe. Legal action from the UK seems too expensive to attempt given the amount due – so here’s my warning avoid!!!! You will not be dealing with honest professionals!
