I have for many years been a contributing photographer to Filmmagic, who have been taking care of my concert and celebrity images for me. I have heard through the grapevine that Getty are planning to buy their parent company Mediavast together with its brands WireImage, Filmmagic and Contour Images.
I have to admit I am very nervous about this and worried for the future of the staff at Filmmagic who have been a big help over the years. Its going to change lets face it. It can go two ways:
- Getty see me as being a small fish in the pond and I get dumped
- It could be the total reverse?
- Who knows?
