You know Shutterstock as one of the most well-known names in royalty-free photos for commercial use (more info in our Shutterstock review!). But this agency has a very solid offer in editorial imagery, built along the last few years through acquisitions, partnerships, and direct contributions.
The Shutterstock Editorial service includes over 40 million images so far and adds about 700,000 new files every month, which means a constant feed of highlights on the latest and most newsworthy events around the globe as well as a very rich archive of iconic and timeless photos.
The company began adding editorial content to their service back in 2015 when they bought the independent image agency Rex Features, the first of several acquisitions to their collection. In the following years, Shutterstock expanded the offer via distribution deals with big names in the field like Penske Media Corporation (owners of Variety among others), AP, EPA, the BFA, the Kobal Collection, the Art Archive, and the Football Association.
As if that wasn’t impressive enough, you must also know they have a network of editorial contributors pushing fresh photos into the library. And by this, we mean renowned and exclusive photographers with access to the most exclusive venues and events.
This is the quality and value you get access to when you use Shutterstock Editorial. Not bad at all!
