Why Come Alive?
1. Lots of people marketing your images
We license Images directly, and also through a Network of premium stock photo companies in 25+ countries including Germany, Japan, US, China, Spain, Mexico, Sweden and many more.
2. We're high-end, rights managed
Rights Managed is the high-end of the marketplace where a premium is charged for your images based on company size, how the images will be used and for how long.
Royalty Free stock house charge one or two prices (usually low), and essentially enable the clients to do what they want with the images, forever. Bottom line, they leave money on the table.
3. Personal Touch
We invest time with each artist to help build their brand, educate them on how the stock image industry works, what's required by both parties to license work, preferred subjects to shoot, submission guidelines, help with contracts, you name it.
4. In it for the long haul
We invented this marketplace with our artists, and have resisted the temptation to give images away the way many big stock agencies do with still photos. Moving images are more rare, arguably deliver more marketing firepower, and therefor do not compete with, nor should they be compared or grouped with ubiquitous, inexpensive stock photos or video.
Come Alive Images Co-founder Jerry Tavin has been in the stock business longer than most of our artists have been alive. Having him in your corner for advise and council is invaluable for artists building their brand.
Glasshouse Images, our sister agency has experienced and professional image editors who carefully review and clear all images for stock licensing. This is not their first rodeo licensing images.
6. Long term Vision
Come Alive Images invented the stock Gif & Cinemagraph marketplace and we see where it is going. In our DNA is the belief that the short looping idea, in all its flavors, delivered in any technology is the digital asset which will ultimately compete with still images and long video. We exist to evangelize short looping images and the artists who make them, not wed ourselves to any particular look, process, software, file format or terminology.
7. Got Your back
Come Alive Images identifies image infringers (people using your work without a license) and pursues retroactive licenses on our artist's behalf.
