When good enough isn’t good enough.
If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.
( Red Adair, when asked what his fee was for extinguishing oil well fires after the Gulf war.)
In most present image agencies you are overwhelmed with pictures of a lower quality, not technical but more and more in design and composition. It is a fact that design and composition are the most important qualities that make a picture a selling aid and that is what you are looking for.
Selling your product is the goal you have in mind when you make the huge investment to advertise in the media. The image you use in that advertisement has to be of outstanding quality. Why do a lot of people invest thousands of dollars and choose a picture of lower quality because the price is low and think “this will be good enough?” Is this not taking a big risk?
Photographers' Selection only allows a small group of professional photographers with impeccable skills to show their work. These are photographers of different niches; however, all have outstanding quality. It is a group of very talented individuals making pictures that sets them apart from amateurs.
As a designer or publisher you will deal directly with them, the photographers, not with someone sitting at a desk deciding what picture he wants to sell to you for his own benefit because he has a commission on every sale.
Dealing directly with the artist has some advantages that a regular agency cannot offer.
- First of all, you can find high-quality images with no agency commission to be paid.
- Secondly, you are able to get in contact with the artists yourself to discuss changes or even ask for a unique image to be made especially for you.
As a group of individuals we created the Agency, Photographers' Selection, to show our work. You can search our site just like any other agency by keyword and create light boxes, but all of this comes with the ability to get in contact with the artist.
Our photographers operate from all around the world, and many of them are always traveling. This means that you can request new images to be photographed from many destinations. If you want a request sent to all of our members please contact me.
