News about Gameface Media
If you shoot sports and watch your craigslist ads occasionally you see postings to shoot marathon and triathlons and tough mudders and such. There are a number of different companies that do this, most hire local freelance photographers to cover each race.
Gameface has a large number of photographers that they haven't paid. Some are owed for races from more than a year ago, some are owed $1000 and more. Repeated promises to pay soon have been unfulfilled. They are now offering to pay upfront but still won't catch up people owed from the past. They asked me to shoot 3 upcoming races, I told them I needed to be prepaid and they needed to pay up a friend who is owed $500 for a race 6 months ago.
Yesterday I learned an employee quit after not receiving a paycheck for 5 weeks.
This girl s just a heads up so nobody here gets fooled into responding to one of their craigslist ads and shoots without getting prepaid in full.
