In our everlasting quest to try and find new markets for the teenagers pictures FairMail has signed deals with 4 international stock photography agencies (Corbis, Majority World, World Portraits and Hollandse Hoogte). This means that a selection of the teenager’s pictures will be available on their on-line image databases. These are used by their customers looking for images for a wide range of products varying from magazines to newspapers and from advertisements to book covers. From now on they will also be able to select FairMail images, directly supporting our motivated and talented teenagers. Just like with their postcards, 50% of the profit FairMail makes with the sale of the images goes directly into the teenagers personal education fund.
According to Cila d’Oliviera, production manager at World Portraits, “representing FairMail’s photography is a logical step for World Portraits. It fits with our special concept to let (deprived) individuals everywhere in the world share in the profits of the pictures sold. This way we don’t only offer the models, but also the talented teenage photographers, a new perspective. Together we can take the idea of fair trade photography to a new level”
Please feel free to share the opportunity to purchase fair trade images to any friends and colleagues who purchase images professionally and might be interested in fair trade photography.
