We are also interested in understanding your motivation for visual media and your preferred subject matter. If you are currently working on a personal project or have an idea you are considering, we would be happy to offer our mentoring resources to support you.

We offer a flexible freelance contract that provides our photographers with a 35% share of the revenue for exclusive content. While we generally prioritize exclusive content, we may occasionally work with non-exclusive content, in which case our offer is 40% in favour of the author.
In addition to accepting outside content, we may also have paid assignments available for our photographers. In these cases, we will pay a day rate or project fee, and you will retain copyright ownership for five years following the completion of the paid assignment.
Should you choose to leave VX Pictures at any point, we will honour your request to remove your images from our archives. However, we reserve the right to retain paid assignment work indefinitely. Additionally, we will continue to pay you a 20% share of any sales that occur beyond the five-year ownership period.
While there is no guarantee that your work will be sold, we offer a fair compensation package if it does. If you are interested in learning more about the earning potential of our platform, we encourage you to purchase any of our available pictures.
Thank you for considering VX Pictures as your creative partner.
The VX Media Production Department is currently seeking communication production assistants, including linguists and fixers, to support our team.
