Independent Artist Rates

NOTE: If you are a “Music Industry Professional” signed with a label, and not part of The Co-creative Alliance, please email for your pricing… along with WHO YOU ARE, what label you’re with, and what you’re interested in. We thank you for all your hard work & dedication, in helping to make the music industry something more & better. However, how you’ll be using the images (and videos) will be different than the Independent Artists, and your needs likely a lot different, therefore we have a different pricing schedule to help accommodate your needs.
