I am currently doing my research on marathon and sports event photography. I am looking at photo services such as finisherpix.com and marathon-photos.com. Are the photographers taking photos for these sites freelance professionals or are they from certain agencies/companies? Furthermore, what's the pay structure, like how much does the photographer/agency get and how much does the company (finisherpix) get? Thanks in advance!

I am guessing finisherpix pay their photographers, and they are most likely freelancers who have signed up to different agencies... such as this one and marathon-photos.com.

Freelance photographers often sign up to agencies, as this is another source of income, so your questions sort of answers itself.
