Erickson Stock RF Now Available At PantherMedia

Posted on 1/17/2017 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Erickson Stock has recently launched an RF collection that is now available on PantherMedia. For over 30 years Jim Erickson has been one of the US's preeminent commercial photographers and has created timeless imagery for hundreds of blue chip clients, including AT&T, American Express, Wells Fargo, Cisco, Pinnacle Entertainment, General Motors, HBO, Pfizer, Merrill Lynch, United Airlines and Home Depot.

Jim has won over 100 awards from publications and organizations such as Communication Arts, Graphis, Photo District News, Print Magazine, GDUSA, the Art Director's Club of San Francisco and the Advertising Photographers of America. He is known for his ability to capture spontaneous and unexpectedly telling moments that connect with the viewer in a way that just makes you want to be there. This special skill developed with his originally photo-journalistic work, that was also award winning in its own right.

Formerly all rights-managed, this high-end collection of imagery has been long held by graphic designers and artists as the finest photography for stock on the planet. Produced and directed by renowned photographer and artist Jim Erickson himself, Erickson’s award winning photography has been said to “illustrate stories with the eye and heart of a photojournalist.”

Says Tomas Speight: “Erickson Stock from just north of San Francisco has been in my sights for quite a while. I have wanted to offer my customers the Erickson Stock Collection for many years. For various reasons, it never worked out with any of the previous agencies I worked for. I admire Jim Erickson and his agency because I feel that all the images share a common vibe that make them stand out in the huge ocean of photography. For want of a better word I have always tried to capture this vibe with the expression "lyrical lighting". Now, at last, I can show you the Erickson Stock RF Collection on and you can decide for yourself if you agree or don't see what I am talking about.”

From California Jim Erickson had this to say: “We are excited that Panther Media has added the Erickson Stock RF collection to its library. This is the first time Erickson Stock images have been offered in the royalty free format and this move has opened up new partnership opportunities for us.”

Says Jesse Hughes, Director of Sales and Marketing at Erickson Stock: “Check out why Erickson Stock has been the preferred choice for comps, swipes and creative ideas that are persuasive and visually rich with content. Seamlessly create your own cohesive, custom-looking campaign with this curated collection that has, until now, been exclusively RM.”
