ImageBrief has gone from a briefing-only site to now include a hirable database of photographers from around the world, plus a robust Marketplace of instantly licensable images. While briefing sets us apart and is what keeps clients coming back, the ability to search for an image instantly is the whipped cream and cherry on top.

February was an incredible month of clients logging on, searching, finding the exact image they were looking for, and purchasing instantly. Here’s a small slice of what sold last month and some insight behind the sales.

Client’s Board: We’ve made improvements to the site that makes creating boards even easier for our clients. The best part about it? When they create boards, they come back and license more images, just like this one.

Brief: The brief specified, “shots running away will also be considered if the image is dynamic enough.” We think they landed the perfect image from Terri Aigner.

Relicense: The photographer sold this image on a brief quite a while ago, and because we constantly communicate with our clients, we were able to relicense this image and make some extra dough for the photographer!

Marketplace Search: When you provide clients with an array of tools that makes finding the image they’re looking for easier, it makes things happen. In this case, the client searched the Marketplace using our visual search feature, and found this super cute, royalty free image from Michelle Newnan, a Melbourne-based photographer.

Brief: This major U.S. agency was looking for landscapes in the spring. Though the competition was fierce, this photographer‘s image of Emerald Bay in California brought home the bacon and will be gracing a billboard soon.

Relicense: Another perfect example where the photographer was able to make a considerable amount of money from a relicense, on top of the original license from several years prior. Not bad. Not bad at all!

Brief: The indomitable Deborah Kolb is the perfect example of a photographer who shoots a ton, which allows her to submit killer images to just about any brief under the sun. As a result, she’s one of ImageBrief’s most successful photographers.
