About Newscom FocalPoint
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you wish to reuse any photos from posts on this blog in any way. We don’t mind you sharing posts on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Reddit, StumbleUpon or any other content-sharing website – in fact we strongly recommend you do share them. But if you use one of our photos and only link back to the blog, we will ask you to take them down. As common as that practice is, that’s just not how the photo business really works. Photos used in print publications or on the web need to be legally licensed (from someone like Newscom). We are sincerely flattered that you would want to use our photos – we want people to use them – and we apologize for any inconvenience that this policy may cause, but we’ll do our best to work with you and ask that you be willing to work with us to keep everything going smoothly.
Newscom is the largest multi-agency library of digital images in the world, with nearly 80,000,000 images, graphics, text news stories, and video clips. Partnered with nearly 200 photographers and agencies, we serve digital media to the major (and minor) newspapers, magazines, broadcasters, and websites around the world. Our collections include extensive libraries of editorial news and celebrity/entertainment photographs, creative images, historical photos, and compelling sports content.
Newscom FocalPoint acts as a way for us to highlight parts of the Newscom collection that may otherwise be overlooked (when you have coming up on 80 million images, it helps to highlight parts). So we have many posts that highlight creative photos from our collection, breaking news images and other random images that may spur an idea for a story. We also have some fabulous guest posts from photographer partners that show a view of the world that is unique to photographers.
We’re always looking for ideas so please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have anything you’d like to see or if you’d like to contribute to the blog.
