Supply of photography and videos to photo libraries for commercial and editorial licensing

Nigel supplies stills photography and video clips to a range of photo libraries for commercial and editorial licensing around the world, providing both exclusive and non-exclusive usage rights.

National Geographic Image Collection

The prestigious Disney-owned image publishing division of the National Geographic Society no longer licences its library of images, including those it holds of Nigel’s photography. However, they continue to be used internally by National Geographic and the Disney corporation.

Rather ’boutique’ in comparison with Getty, RHPL has a rather prestigious name, supplying high-end, top-quality travel photography. To see Nigel’s contribution here click below:

Sourcing images directly

Don’t see what you’re looking for with any of the above collections? Not to worry, just get in touch with Nigel, and he’ll see if it’s possible to find the right images for you.

He has many more images in his files than are in any of the libraries, so it’s quite possible that he’ll have just the right image for you.
