With Google, Bing and Yahoo hosting billions upon billions of images in their database, it has become all too easy to search for that ‘New York Skyline’ shot. Just type it in! In fact, we saved you the job – take a look at these ‘New York Skyline’ images, courtesy of Google, of course, and quickly peruse the sheer number of beautiful, glossy (free?) images that await you. Just click on that image, save it to your desktop, and voila – it’s yours. Who’s going to know? There are billions of images on Google search, so how will anyone differentiate or even know that this one skyline picture belongs to someone else?
At ImageBrief, we have several teams that work tirelessly to ensure our whole machine is well-oiled, nimble, and able to hit top speed. One team makes sure photographers are getting their work in front of clients, our developers are constantly improving and innovating our platform, another team ensures clients are able to find the images they need for their campaigns, and perhaps one of the most important roles in the whole mix is our photo editor, who looks at every single image that gets submitted to every brief. That’s right, an actual person looks at every single image before it ever gets in front of the client. Who’s behind the wheel? It’s Darcy Rogers, an experienced photographer with a keen eye and laser-like attention to detail.

Social media is revolutionizing photography and photographers need to adapt. We found that the quick turn-around time of social campaigns created the need for a tool to quickly search for and locate pro photographers in a relevant location—so we created an advanced photographer search feature, Find a Pro.
How often do you find yourself on a shoot with a singular mission or task in mind? You’re shooting for a specific client or adding to your personal portfolio and you work hard to get the shots you want with those specifics in mind. But what if you could do just a little more—an extra outfit on the model at this location, an added prop for another—to give your shoots even more value in the long run?
Outtakes and additional poses can help to build your library of images which come in handy for briefs on ImageBrief and will help you build a great library of stock images which have a variety of uses. (Shhh, little secret, ImageBrief will be rolling out a Premium Marketplace very soon.) So why not go the extra mile to make yourself even more marketable? Read More

We’ve shortlisted ten incredible images from pros in ten different global locations…
In April, 20 Premium Photographers sold images through ImageBrief—and they get to keep 100% of the price each image sold for.

Cheers to Cameron Zegers for the awesome photo!
