New service: Tracing ‘unfindable’ photo copyrights

Are you looking to clear a copyright on a photograph and all you have to go on is the agency stamp on the back of a print? ….and a Google search is not bringing up the current owners contact details ?

Many photo agencies have just disappeared or closed their business with collections lost forever  – but many still exist, probably in the collection of a current operating photo agency. Our Press Photo History Project is mapping the whereabouts of these collections and we offer an agency location service. On file we have many of the new owners of these hard to find copyright holders, others we are able to locate through our extensive world wide network of photo agency owners, private photo collections and photo curators and researchers.

We work with film production companies, advertising agencies, brands, museums and charities solving lost image copyrights.

So, looking for that unfindable photo agency? – give us a go – we are connecting and clearing photo licenses every week

• Note: we can now trace rare or out of print magazines and newspapers through our network of collectors and libraries.
• Our researchers can work in house or remotely and can undertake full search, curate and permission clearing.
