Sports photogs should be aware that Gymnast Media aka Daedalus Media Group (http://www.daedalusmediagroup.com/), owned by Ron Cournoyer, is/has not paid for photographers he has hired. Although he has sold a lot of those photos. He owes myself and three other photographers for gymnastic meets we shot in January and February. Promised 2 week payment, which he did on the first event. Then that was it. Our suggestion is stay away. He is located in Rhode Island, but is looking to photograph events all over New England.

Please take this as friendly advice in the spirit in which it is offered -- make sure you are on very firm ground when making statements like these. A case just settled this week where a company/photographer sued for defamation and won $1MM over negative Internet postings. Not questioning the facts -- just be careful out there.

PureMichigan has a good point. I don't know the specifics of your situation, but if I did a gig 6 months ago and have been in regular contact with the company and they have said the payment is coming, after 6 months, it's obviously not coming.

Hopefully this problem you're having is a mistake/oversight and everything gets resolved soon.

The suit you referenced was one because the couple spread falsehood and lies. That is not the case here. This is a statement of fact...no name calling, no false reviews, etc.

Four of us were hired to shoot an event the first weekend of February. We were told we would be paid in two weeks. Not one of us have been paid yet.There have been several emails and a call that "I am working on it, I am so sorry".

Two of us have now filed small claims and the other two are looking into it.

Nothing but facts, plain and simple. Head the heads up for what it is and proceed with knowledge.
