It’s become a bit of a monthly tradition here at ImageBrief to share some stories behind some of our favorite images that were licensed in the previous month. Our buyers hit 2016 running and were busy all over the site, searching and finding images in our ever-growing Marketplace, putting out on-point briefs, and even relicensing images.

If January is any indication of what the new year will be like, hold on to your hats folks, it’s going to be an awesome year!

Brief: A UK agency was looking for some gorgeous travel shots that “make you want to be there.” We think they hit the jackpot with this one of Sugarloaf Mountain at sunrise as seen from Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro.

Brief: Speaking of book covers, ImageBrief’s book cover maven just sold this image on this brief for a book cover. Once again, it’s worth noting the time the brief was launched, as it illustrates the necessary lead time book publishers usually require before finalizing a brief.

Brief: One of ImageBrief’s biggest travel clients was searching for a jaw-dropping image of a family in a travel destination. We think they picked perhaps the cutest image ever.

Brief: This is the power of briefing folks! A US-based magazine publisher was able to find a Cayman Islands-based photographer who had this stunner of an image of a stingray on the water’s surface.

Relicense: Sarah actually sold this image on a brief for a book cover several months back, and because we have great relationships with our buyers and keep the lines of communication open, she was able to make some extra money on the relicense of this image for the audio version of the book. Be on the lookout for this in a bookstore near you soon!


 

Marketplace: A buyer found Phillip’s image of an empty, rain-soaked street in New Orleans by searching our Marketplace. Thanks to our built-in tools, they were able to pay and download the high-res image instantly.
