ImageBrief Reinvents The Stock Photo Licensing Model

There’s a new stock photography licensing service called ImageBrief. Unlike seemingly every other stock photo site out there, this one appears to be actually empowering for photographers. Why? Because art directors and designers input their search terms in very straightforward language—such as "young man on beach looking into sunset"—and that request is sent to photographers who have signed up for their service. The photographers then check their archives and find these very specific images that would be nearly impossible to find via the standard stock approach. Photographers can sign up for ImageBrief and, if they do it soon, be entered to win a dream photo shoot courtesy of ImageBrief, Adorama and the International Center of Photography. The winner of the sweepstakes—which is entered simply by joining ImageBrief and referring two additional photographers—will receive a new DSLR (up to $3,000 in value) and complimentary travel and accommodations worth up to $5,000. Where’s the dream destination? Because it’s the winner’s own dream shoot, it’s going to be different for everyone. When you enter, you’ll stipulate your ideal destination. Entrants have already submitted things like, "I would love to photograph the migration across the Okavango River," and "My dream shoot is capturing the Aurora Borealis in Iceland." It’s a fun idea for a contest, and it sure seems like ImageBrief is the kind of stock photography licensing partner that photographers would do well to work with. Learn more, about ImageBrief and the sweepstakes, via my link below. I signed up last week, and have been enjoying perusing the daily requests. The more you enter the contest, the better chance I have of winning my own personal dream photo shoot—a week in the Mediterranean. So hurry up and enter today!
