Shoreline, WA, United States, 2008/10/18 - Garden Photo World, the only Pacific Northwest based picture library dealing exclusively in high-quality garden and plant images, announces the launch of its Rights Managed collections of photographs and feature photo stories.
GPW’s Northwest base, blessed with an ideal climate for horticultural activities, provides abundant resources for this type of photography. It is also a nexus for the organic and sustainable gardening movements.
“A key focus of the library will be our photo stories,” says President and Co-Founder David Phillips, “organized by locations, plant profiles and timely gardening topics, such as organic gardening. But what really sets us apart is that, as published writers, we also can provide feature articles to accompany our photo collections.”
In addition to a large selection from the Northwest, Garden Photo World’s online library contains thousands of international garden and plant images, hand-selected for artistic and technical excellence. Subjects include rhododendrons, dahlias, roses, tulips, farm produce and English gardens. Each image is meticulously captioned and keyworded, fully cross-referenced for easy searching on the comprehensive website.
“We undertake a variety of international assignments every year,” says Co-Founder and Director, Georgianna Lane. “some familiar and some more exotic, and our growing library reflects this diversity.” Recent locations include Vermont in autumn, Parisian gardens in spring, wildflowers in Central Chile, and the private and public gardens of Southeast England, resulting in over 30 new feature photo stories.
“We are very excited about providing images and articles for a variety of collaborative products. Unlike the huge and frankly, rather impersonal stock houses, we are right here on the ground, and if you don’t see exactly what you want on our site, chances are we have it in the library or can shoot it for you within hours. The difference with us is getting exactly what you need, fast, with friendly, personal service.”
Garden Photo World is open for business at its website or call with specific requests.
