Last week, our CEO, Simon Moss announced our partnership with ImageRights to help our community protect their copyright and fight image theft.

Protecting Copyright Is Complex. We Just Fixed That.
Photographers lose millions of dollars every year through the misuse and theft of their images. It’s a missed revenue opportunity for photographers and a risk for brands.
Understanding copyright can be difficult. Marketers don’t always know the specific differences between Rights Managed, Royalty-Free and Creative Commons licensing. It can also be challenging for organizations to track and manage the usages of images they have licensed. As designers and creatives come and go, clients are left to track and manage what is legal use and what isn’t.
As a photographer, monitoring and protecting the copyright of your images is a critical function of your business.
We love seeing winning ImageBrief shots out and about, and when we spotted this snapshot of the perfect NYC scene in Midtown Manhattan, now the face of a worldwide Delta Airlines campaign, our excitement just couldn’t be contained! This is what ImageBrief is all about: connecting the best of the best from both ends of the creative process and letting the magic happen.
Not surprisingly, we couldn’t resist getting in touch with the photographer, Pamela Oliveras, for a play by play of her process, from the first spark of inspiration to the point of sale on the ImageBrief platform. Thanks for chatting with us, Pamela, and congratulations!
