ImageCollect is a micro-stock celebrity photo library. Like "iStockphoto", but for celebrity images.
The ImageCollect photo library possesses over 3M images, all available by subscription for as little as $1 each. Created by veterans of the celebrity photo space, ImageCollect brings together a world-class picture delivery platform, a premier pool of photographers, and experienced entertainment industry vets.
Celebrity photos in the ImageCollect library range from iconic archival material, such as shots of a young and exuberant JFK in the oval office, to photos of todayâ€™s biggest stars attending red carpet events. ImageCollect aims to disrupt the celebrity photo market by applying the micro-stock business model of successful sites like iStockphoto, Shutterstock, and Fotolia to the editorial licensing space.
The company strives to make celebrity imagery available to new media buyers and fans under simple pricing and licensing terms. Customers include People Magazine, US Weekly, Life & Style, Tribune Media Services, NY Times Magazine, and Star Magazine, among many others.
