Fortunately we get these collections every year to help us remember the big events of the year and also to see some of the truly incredible shots that our partners got over the course of the year.

At Newscom, we are privileged to work with some of the best photographers in the business. We’ve partnered with photographers and agencies around the world so that you, our favorite customers, can come to Newscom and see all the best photos in one place. It’s a quite brilliant system, really.
1. How did you get involved in photography?
My father was an avid amateur photographer and I caught the bug from him at a very early age.
2. When did you get your first camera and what do you remember about it?
My first camera was a simple point and shoot with no controls. I was 8 years old. When I my first roll came back, all the images were blurred. No one had bothered to tell me to hold the camera steady while snapping the shutter. That was my first lesson. Continue reading →
It’s not tooting our own horn when we tell you that we pride ourselves on having the broadest collection of content in the world. We work hard to make Newscom the type of place where you (the awesome reader, photo editor, photographer, researcher, art director, etc) can come and find those elusive images that you can’t find anywhere else. We also want to make Newscom a place where you can come once and get the quality photos on any subject you need for your publication in one stop – like the Target of the photo licensing world.
Because of this, we’re always looking to expand our collection with the right partners. And in epa, we think we’ve struck gold … well, really, you’ve struck gold because you (the awesome reader, editor, research staff, etc) are the ones who will now be able to browse and download photos from epa right at Newscom.
