Industry-Leading Artist Representation and Global Assignment Services are Now More Accessible to Customers Than Ever Before

Seattle, WA, March 20, 2007. Getty Images, Inc. (NYSE: GYI) today announced the launch of Orchard, a boutique assignment photography agency that delivers customized, high quality representation with unparalleled efficiency.

Customers can choose from two distinct services:

  • Orchard Artist Representation, which offers elite, award-winning photographers for commission based on their style, approach and specialty; and
  • Orchard Global Assignment, which facilitates the commission of talent for projects driven by geographical location.

The expansion of Getty Images' photo assignment business is a result of growing customer demand for streamlined customization. Since 2004, the company's volume in the assignment category has more than doubled.

"Whether a project requires the expert focus of our world-renowned represented talent or the agility of our global network of photographers, Orchard gives customers a range of options no other agency can match," said Matthew Goodrich, director of Marketing and Strategy for Orchard.

Orchard Artist Representatives work closely with an elite roster of emerging and established talent across the globe. Based in New York, London, Munich and Paris, these reps manage all aspects of production, including timelines, budgets, casting and travel logistics, while ensuring the visions and expectations of the photographer and the customer are in alignment throughout the process.

Prominent talent repped through Orchard Artist Representation includes Lorenzo Agius, Polly Borland, Martha Camarillo, Patrick Curtet, Trevor Ray Hart, Mitch Jenkins, Simon Ladefoged, Stuart O' Sullivan, Per-Anders Pettersson, Sabine Pigalle, Shaul Schwarz, Brent Stirton, Tom Stoddart and David Turnley.
