SELECTED IMAGES is a specialized photographic agency and licensing platform that connects the world’s most exciting images with the cutting-edge brands, publications and agencies that are defining contemporary culture. We represent rights managed images covering Music & Arts, Sports, Portraiture and Reportage.


We offer a hand-selected, highly curated archive of only the best images, establishing a high-end boutique brand, renowned for unique photography, exclusive work and quality, rather than quantity. Less is more! We are a premium specialist, not a generalist. We combine an extraordinary range of individual styles into one outstanding archive. Only the most iconic and distinctive images of the highest quality will make it into our archive. Our goal is to beat the trend of ever-expanding, confusing and unmanageable archives housing millions if not hundreds of millions of images, giving each image or story back its value, and each of our contributors back his or her worth!


Clients can find images more easily, as you don’t have to browse through millions of images of little value or quality. You will know you can find outstanding content only, and you can find it effortlessly. Contributors won't get buried and lost in masses of images. But each contributor will be taken care of and handled personally, as will be your valued work. We don't want to look after millions of images, and we don't want to work with hundreds of photographers, but a distinctive group. Each contributor, each story can and will get promoted and showcased to our clients as a result, raising the chance for them to sell. Over 90% of all images in our archive are exclusively with SELECTED IMAGES. We offer a worldwide network of photographers, and all of them can be booked for assignment productions.

Images are only available to Selected Images account holders and all fees are negotiated individually and privately. As a company, we are a small, individual, independent enterprise, believing in the power and energy of personal contact and collective effort, when everyone else seems to be going big and corporate. We are unafraid to swim against the prevailing currents.
