UpperCut Images Offers Rights-Protected Images by A-List Photographers
UpperCut Images has entered the stock photography market armed with a not-so-secret weapon: great images by great photographers. With a masterful collection, an elite roster of photographers and advanced rights protection, UpperCut Images is awakening the design world with its artistic commercial offerings.
After carefully analyzing the market's demographic trends and needs, UpperCut Images recruited nearly 100 photographers - including industry heavyweights and promising newcomers - to contribute and shoot new images. The result: a talent pool that includes Sean Kennedy Santos, Darryl Estrine, Paul Aresu, David Maisel, Richard Radstone, and Chase Jarvis, to name just a few.
UpperCut Images is also setting itself apart by rights protecting its entire collection. Every image includes spot rights protection, which prevents use by direct competitors during the duration of each image's license. UpperCut Images also offers advanced licensing options, including media, industry and territory rights protection, allowing for flexible combinations to accommodate client needs and budget. Built-in spot protection, plus UpperCut's new-to-market images, are breakthrough offerings in the stock world.
