STOCK IMAGERY, or
imagery, or Stock Photography,
is where a photographer or agency licences a photo to a client
to reproduce for a licence fee. The client essentially
rents reproduction rights according to how they want to use
is probably the most common form of photography
image use worldwide.
are that costs to a client are often much
lower. Clients do not have to commission potentially expensive
location work if the image already exists. They also have
access to images not normally obtainable on a timeframe &
budget (e.g. imagine needing shots of the South Pole - they
would be best purchased as stock … to send someone there would
be horrendously expensive!). You also see what you're licencing
beforehand - there's no luck, weather watching or finger crossing
involved, and you've got immediate access to the image.
Typically the terms are non-exclusive, meaning that the photographer
could sell the shot for use elsewhere at a later time (this
is of course important for the photographer to be able to offer
good rates and recover costs on the lower reproduction rate
basis). However, reputable image libraries like Nature's
Pic Images will NOT sell images
to potential competitors in the same marketplace or sector.
