->> Hi everybody, I would like to know how I should present my photos to Getty to be a contributor? they don't specify how many photos or if they asking for a link, that is what the asking for: If you are a working photojournalist please include tear sheets, professional references and links to your work on-line. Please do not send jpeg samples. All submissions are prioritized by breaking news events, content and territorial needs. If your work meets our criteria, a Managing Editor will contact you about submission or coverage opportunities.
But Im not sure what do they looking for, if somebody can help me it will be great! thanks!!

->> Daniel it looks like they are looking for a portfolio of your best work. If you have a website with some tightly-edited galleries that would be a great place to start. Make sure you have good examples of deadline sports coverage like the types of events they cover on a daily basis.

Places like this never want you to send files- that is a nightmare for editors and a sure way for your name to go in the trash can. Editors love getting links to content that is online and easy for them to look at and find. Don't send them on a wild goose chase all over the place. By showing them that you have great pictures and are professional and KNOW what a great picture is they will quickly be able to tell whether you "get it" or not.

Take your time and put some great pictures together but remember you don't need too many. A set of 15-20 great pictures and some nice references from well-respected pros can go a long way.

Good luck,
