Education for and about Indigenous Peoples

Our photographs are available for commercial, royalty-free, stock licensing. In addition to the photography you see on our web site, we have thousands of images of these and other ethnic, tribal, native, indigenous groups in our library. Whatever your needs, there is a good chance we have photographs to meet them. Our photographs are shot mainly on professional 35mm slide film. We can provide true 6,400 dpi optical, 48-bit color TIFF format files up to 250 MB in size with a 24 to 48 hour turnaround time after terms are agreed. Even higher resolution drum scans are available with more advanced notice.

Our more recent photographs are shot using a Nikon D800 DSLR camera at full 36MP resolution in (14-bit lossless compressed) RAW format. For these photographs we can provide the original out-of-the-camera RAW files or 48-bit color TIFF format files.

Licensing fees vary depending on factors such as size, location (front/back/inside cover etc.) and circulation volume. 100% of the licensing fee is used for the education of indigenous people. Please contact us for a quote regarding stock licensing any of our images or with any other inquiries you may have.
