Dresden, Saxony, Germany, 2009/10/20 - Circle Stock Images is proud to announce the launch of its stock photography website created by a small team of photographers, circlestockimages.com, featuring stunning travel-centric images from around the globe.
The site was created to provide photo buyers with better access to the photographers and their images. On large stock photography web sites, photo buyers are often overwhelmed by inappropriate results from online keyword searches when seeking a specific travel image. Circle Stock Images’ tightly-edited collection, however, means searches are quicker and more relevant.
The photographer-managed agency differs from traditional photo agencies by offering commission-free competitive pricing and the ability to contact and negotiate with member photographers individually. All the features found on other stock photography sites, including themed galleries, lightboxes and keyword searching are provided. Low resolution watermarked comps are also provided at no charge.
Through the site’s e-commerce facility, buyers can instantly download high resolution files and pay using PayPal™ or major credit card. Other payment methods and terms may be negotiated with individual member photographers as appropriate. This flexibility is one benefit of the photographer-managed agency versus more traditional ones.
Member photographers are located in Estonia, Germany, England, Thailand, Canada and the United States. Between them, they have captured over 45,000 beautiful images of the people, culture, scenery, food and environment of every continent.
The collection is constantly growing as members continue to travel to new locations. Upcoming destinations are China, South America, Australia, Hong Kong and Europe, as well as specific U.S. and Canadian regions. Contact Circle Stock Images to determine approximate dates and times.
