Thanks to their common experience and the potential of their archives, the photographers of Sea&Co gathered four strong ideas.
1 - Permanency and availability about long term project: the top sailing projects are sometimes changing because submitted to the weather.
Working together with the possibility to replace each other allows the customer to be sure of the availability of the specialized photographer at the requested level at the right moment, who will work and publish according to the initially planned standards.
2 - Complementarity during the important events. Several photographers have to works together on he same events, whether for the preparation (realization of a photographic library) during an important day (departure/ arrival of a race) or to vary the prints of view or the angle shots. Sea&Co is today able to propose this service.
3 - Cost reduction. Thanks to their existing group of customers, to their geographic repartition on the French shore, to their frequent journeys abroad for the most important events, Sea&Co photographers are able to propose lower moving production costs (race departure or arrival) or gathering means of sea or aerial shots.
4- A better distribution. since the creation of their common server www.seaandco.net, the group has set a new standard in independant marine photography. All the pictures produced by the 8 photographers are available in one same place. Not only the photo editors don't have to search images in many places with different browsing systems and different access codes, but in adding their common listing, Sea and co photographers are able to reach more customers when they send alerts and distribute theyr photos. By joining the "Pixpalace" network, Sea&Co photos are now directly available to the biggest media photo editors, thanks to the local terminal installed on their desk.
ONE SAME WAY OF WORKING
1 – The relationships are established with each customer by only one photographer said “main photographer”. He insures the setting of the mutual contract, the main shots, the setting of the pictures, their delivery, their immediate publishing, and remains the main customer’s referent for contracts, administration and the financial aspects.
2 – The proposal made to the customer automatically includes the idea of a photographic crew, each photographer of Sea&Co being able to replace or help the main photographer. The main photographer follows their intervention to make sure it remains true to the signed contracts and looks after their wages.
3 – Each collaboration contract automatically includes, except if the customer does not whish it, a publishing on that photo server.
4 – In the proposed service there is an option for the creation of a photo software on internet which allows the customer to publish for his inner services or external customers, including media and public, as well as the photographic library created by Sea&Co, and already existing archives.
