Posted on 2/2/2015 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

age fotostock, a stock photography agency based in Spain with offices in Barcelona, Madrid, New York, and Paris, launched a new look on their website this week.

The site,, has been designed by in-house age fotostock web designers and programmers in direct response to customer demand for an attractive website where themes, categories, collections and offers are easy to find. Along with the new look, age fotostock is introducing two new curated collections, ‘SnapMobileFoto’ and ‘Unconventional’.

Moving alongside developments in technology, the business model of the stock photography industry and its ecosystem has changed constantly and dramatically in the past years, both in web design trends as well as the clients’ approach to licensing images. age fotostock, a company in the business for more than 40 years, still individually owned, and always “on the crest of the wave,” sticks to the principle of protecting photography and photographers while adapting to market demands. The company has undertaken the development of a new website that recognizes and incorporates the needs of change with a contemporary and innovative design. The enhanced navigation and visual offer are just some of many improvements that have been made to the age fotostock and THP platforms following the initial website launch in 1997.

Alfonso Gutiérrez, CEO of age fotostock, comments, "We have researched the market and utilized the skills of our in house IT developers and designers to create a new look that is unique, smart and functional, presenting our great variety of content in a manner convenient for clients. We are pleased to offer two new creative and contemporary collections that embrace the growing changes in both visual culture and technology, Unconventional and SnapMobilePhoto. Both collections are increasingly rapidly with a wealth of fresh imagery."

Julieanne Eason, Content Manager, says, "The emphasis on showing our photographers" work is an essential part of the age fotostock philosophy. The work of photographers is the basis of the new visual culture that the internet has introduced in our global society. New media has profoundly altered everything, from licensing models to rewarding creativity, and offers fresh possibilities that photographers need to assimilate. We are facilitating changes in order to present a world of possibilities in which visual creators continue to benefit.”
