The Seattle, Washington based garden stock photo library, Garden Photo World, has signed a non-exclusive contract with leading international stock photo distributor, Photolibrary of the Photolibrary Group for worldwide distribution of a number of its key image collections.
Garden Photo World specializes in images of gardens, flowers and plants, including many from North America with a large and growing collection from the Pacific Northwest.
“While we continue to provide our images, and assignment photography and writing services directly to our clients, we are excited to have these collections represented and distributed by the prestigious Photolibrary with its broad, international reach,” said Georgianna Lane, Co-founder and Director of Garden Photo World.
Photolibrary’s North America Operations Director, Dan Russelman, noted, “Garden Photo World’s strong botanical and horticultural collection, with its emphasis on North American species, enhances Photolibrary’s already extensive coverage of garden and flower subjects.”
The non-exclusive agreement went into effect in November 2008 and Photolibrary has already added thousands of images by Garden Photo World’s talented photographic team to its international collection and made these available to clients through its website. Further images will be added on a regular basis.
Garden Photo World (gardenphotoworld.com) is the only Pacific Northwest based picture library dealing exclusively in high-quality garden and plant images. GPW’s Northwest location, 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. In addition to a large selection from the Northwest, Garden Photo World’s collection includes thousands of international garden and plant images, hand-selected for artistic and technical excellence and meticulously captioned and keyworded.
