Blend Images, the world’s leading multicultural stock photography agency, announced today the addition of Memento, a new camera phone stock image collection featuring strongly conceptual and illustrative commercial content. Memento images will be available for licensing at www.blendimages.com and stock resellers worldwide in early 2013.
“The quality of imagery being generated by iPhone® and Android™ devices is astounding, and with the ever increasing use of imagery online, we believe the potential for licensing this content is tremendous,” said Rick Becker-Leckrone, CEO of Blend Images. “Thousands of professional commercial photographers are capturing compelling images every day with their camera phones. And image resolution is becoming less of a barrier for commercial licensing. Our goal is to provide new and unique options in visual media to our clients.”
Sarah Fix, VP of Creative at Blend, adds: “Ultimately, art buyers want compelling imagery that visually defines promotional or editorial concepts, regardless of the tool used to create it. In many ways, the camera function on today’s smart phone is the perfect device for capturing relevant, dynamic stock imagery. Both the increasingly exceptional technology of the camera phone and its tremendous portability allow for a spontaneity that often results in the kind of real-world, natural, candid images advertisers seek.”
Blend Images is now accepting imagery for Memento through the Blend Portal. Photographers who are interested in submitting images for the Memento collection can find more information at http://www.blendimages.com/memento.shtml.
