We’re passionate about creating a more visually rich world — a place to share ideas, tell stories and collaborate as a vibrant creative community which enriches our culture in meaningful ways. We believe that creativity is powered by copyright — the concept that artists own the right to say how their original works can be used, and which enables them to earn a living through their original works. Getty Images manages rights through content licensing for more than a quarter million photographers, videographers, illustrators and musicians. Working with us, these artists collectively earn hundreds of millions of dollars every year, pursue creative careers and invest in creating new content to for everyone’s communications. At Getty Images we stand with creatives.
