  • Procuring images (political figures)

    Hi there,

    I'm working on a task for a client that requires me to procure 4 images of political figures, at high resolution with the proper licence for their use on bus shelter advertisements.

    Specifically, I'm looking for two images of David Cameron (UK Prime Minister), one of Nick Clegg (UK Coalition Prime Minister) and one of them together.

    Thus far, I've found only Getty to have suitable images and rights and their fees are understandably high. The client wasn't scared off by the cost of the images (around 1000 each) for this project, but I'm sure that other suitable images may be available for slightly less.

    Can anybody advise as to where I might find them?

    Thanks in advance,
    Alex.

    found that corbis was much cheaper (around half the price) for a very similar licence.

      Be very careful here. Talk to Corbis about using those images in the way you intend to use them. There is a thing called Rights of Publicity. Just buying an image using the general purchase agreement does NOT grant you those much beyond editorial use. And if you think $1000 is a lot for an image, you haven't seen what a full public figure 'Model Release" costs...

        Since Adobe has both the money and the incentive to do so, my guess is that any significant improvements along this line would be immediately purchased by them and incorporated into the next release of...

        Indeed, that's why I said. "You'd also need some knowledge how wrapping works, before you actually want to Design them"
