• World’s largest independent stock photo site adds one million celebrity images
• 24 million images now available on-line
Alamy has further strengthened its collection with the addition of over a million celebrity images. The company represents over 570 of the world’s leading stock and specialist agencies and a vast array of photographers from every corner of the globe.
Rachel Wakefield, head of sales at Alamy, said: “We are extremely popular with newspaper and magazine customers and this additional entertainment and sports content cements our appeal. TV and film stars, royals and sporting celebrities will always be sought after”.
Alamy is well known for its quality and variety of imagery, from the obvious to the obscure. The combination of high profile stock agencies and 25,000 individual photographers gives an extraordinary blend of world class imagery, with a myriad of flavours and themes. For these reasons, the company is considered the first, and often only, port-of-call for customers who value this mix.
Alan Capel, head of content at Alamy added: “Our collection has both freshness and variety and our customers appreciate that much of this imagery is unique to Alamy”.
Alamy is the world’s largest independent stock photo site. It connects thousands of designers, marketing departments, news desks, and publishers with some of the best professional and amateur photographers around.
Alamy does not make editorial judgements on pictures, nothing is rejected providing the quality is acceptable – it lets the customer choose the pictures they want. Alamy’s revolutionary approach to the stock photography business means 60 percent of each sale is paid to the content owner – the lion’s share or the revenue earned.
