Selecting the images:
The kind of images we usually sell are a mix of city, people, landscape, fauna, flora, traditions, food,  kitsch, celebrations...
It's very hard to predict which images will sell, the typical client wants images similar to what you'll see in an illustrated travel guide but we get all kinds of out of the ordinary requests.

It is very hard to sell images of beaten track places (Paris, NY...), because the market is flooded with cheap or royalty free images, for such places only very high quality images will sell.

We offer you 50% of the amount of any sales made via Payments are sent to photographers by: bank transfer, Paypal, Check.

The images are only licensed, copyright remains with the authors. All images are rights managed, we do not sell royalty free images. Client requests for exclusive rights are handled only after consultation with the author.

You are free to place your images in other image banks. We recommend that you select such sites with great care, staying away from those selling images at $1 and from royalty free places. Selling RF images will result in loss of control of rights by the author.

The content of our image library serves both conventional and online publishers in many sectors. Since 1994 we have been catering to stock photography clients small and large, from generalist magazines and newspapers to TV stations, but covering also educational books, travel guides, travel catalogues, travel magazines, corporate reports, conference brochures, travel sites, internet portals...
