Warning Asian Geo!

Asian Geo not paying foreign photographers!

I just wanted to start a post with a warning but also see if any other photographers/ Journalist had same bad experience with Asian Geo as me?

Asia Geo contacted me many months back, they wanted images from Nepal Civil War and in a hurry, and the deadline was just a few days away. Since I always try to deliver even when deadline is short, I send them a bunch pics, they decided that they wanted 4 images in high res + some short text which I delivered. And I left it their but a few weeks later I asked for detail so I could send them an invoice, and I get told that it not published yet. So of course I wonder why in hell lie about the deadline, sure magazines do need some time before print but everybody that somehow worked for newspaper or magazine knows that deadline is just before the plates are made. Anyhow almost 4 months later the replay I am getting it’s not printed yet, they are not paying for images that are not printed. And then after a few mail were I am getting slightly upset. They are telling me to forget the whole thing. They just treat photographers like shit. It’s a small amount and I could just say in hell with it but then heard other people had similar experience. Just a bad magazine! / Olof

Thanks Putu, I should have been reading this before sending them photos. I will se what my lawyer has to say… But you know what pisses me of the most are their bloody attitude. I asked Asian Geo why they treated photographers like shit, there response was they treat all photographers the same (like shit)
