If you are a photojournalist or you cover interesting events, contact us. We will need you to email us a small sample of your work to with a short bio of your experience.

01. Press Images

The agefotostock press section offers press photography to our clients. Our news content is classified into different categories: culture, economy, fashion, people, politics, portraits, royals, sports and world.

What do we consider “press images”? 

  • Images of celebrities, socialites and relevant figures of our society (portraits, events coverage, photocalls/red carpet, famous people in their daily life, royal families’ activities, etc.).
  • Cultural events: concerts, theater shows, film shoots, book/film/music presentations, cultural festivals, etc.
  • Fashion events.
  • Sports events.
  • Politicians and political activities (cabinet meetings, committees, parliamentary activities, press conferences, etc.)

Images that do not portray news or a prominent event, everyday life images, should be sent with the usual stock photography procedure. It is very important not to send stock content to the press folder.

In our press section you can see examples of what we classify as press images.

02. Workflow

  • Press images should be sent by FTP ( with the credentials assigned to each individual photographer (See the FTP Section).
