Image Source, the world's leading independent producer of royalty free stock photography, is pleased to announce that its AXIS service, which allows third party production companies access to Image Source’s sales and distributor platforms, has signed its latest collection, Cultura.
“This content from Cultura is high quality, exciting and contemporary, and perfectly complements the cutting-edge photography Image Source produces itself”, said Duncan Grossart, Image Source CEO. “The style, content and subjects in this collection are a great fit with our own images and offers clients a much broader range of imagery to fulfil their needs”. Duncan added: “We welcome Cultura to Image Source and are still actively looking for more content producers to add.”
Cultura is a royalty free collection that is dedicated to capturing the rich, cultural diversity of Europe. Led by a former Vice President of Getty Images, Anthony Harris, it was founded by a group of award winning photographers and leading art directors whose combined creative and professional expertise enables Cultura to produce a dynamic collection relevant to image buyers worldwide.
“We decided to create a business around a photographer community that will itself create great photography”, says Anthony. “By focussing on high quality, European images we can stand out as a niche supplier in the market.” Commenting on the European emphasis of the content, Anthony added, “It is our mission to reflect the ethnicity and cultural individuality of the real Europe and its people – the warmth and vibrancy of faces, architectural locations and the rich spectrum of work of family lifestyles.”
Cultura content will be available to Image Source’s direct clients through its websites.
Image Source is still looking for production companies of relevant, top quality, royalty free photography to offer on its AXIS service. All enquiries should be directed to Simon Perfect at simon.perfect[.]imagesource.com.
