    Pridemore Publishing Photography

    In Small Business mag, there is an ad for receiving $480 for taking 24 pictures. Has anyone tried this and is it a scam? This is isn't the living will one. You send them $24 (inc s&h) and they send you their picture perfect system. I'm highly skeptical of any of these things, but figured I would see if anyone had experience with this particular one. Thanks.

    I have tried looking at the stock photo websites and it doesn't make sense to me how Pridemore can pay you $20 / pic when the stock photo websites are very picky about subject matter and only give you a few bucks per download. It may be a different payment method where you have to surrender your rights to the photograph, I don't know. I don't know, I have wasted $24.00 on worse things..........

    I sent in my money a couple of days ago, maybe about 1 week. I have not gotten anything yet....But I have spent more than this on other things.

    I used a credit card and did it online on 3/12/9; still nothing. And that's more than 3 weeks for "expadited" delivery??

    I'd like to see the mailing address, and any other contact info from that advertisement. Can anyone lay hands on a copy? I'd like to check a few things out before I make any further comment.

    I just opened up the package and the booklet of the "Picture Perfect System" is 18 pages long. So, if you paid for expedited shipping like I did, that's $2/page; and the first page is the title page and the second is the legal disclaimers!! It takes Chris Johansen 7 pages to get to the real info he has to sell. He gives you the name of a couple of websites; his favorite webiste comes up at the top of the second page of a google search for "stock photography".

    There is CERTAINLY no mention of offering to pay anyone $480/24 pics. It is merely some thoughts about using the various stock photo websites in order to sell your photos. All easily accessible by anyone interested in doing a search on how to sell your digital photographs online.

    Wow. That's some expedited shipping. So I guess we are concluding that this is fairly useless to waste money on. Thanks for posting your findings.
