Scoopt scooped up by Getty

Occasionally good things happen to good people: fellow Scots tech hack Kyle MacRae’s photojournalism agency, Scoopt, has been snapped up by Getty Images. It’s very unlikely that Kyle’s currently rolling around in a bin bag full of tenners, but it’s bound to be a big relief: he’s made a lot of sacrifices to get Scoopt started and to keep it running, and being part of an industry giant is good for Kyle – maybe he’ll be able to have something more interesting than Tesco Value baked beans for dinner now – and of course, good news for the people submitting their stuff to Scoopt.
