PantherMedia is happy to announce that the royalty free images of the renowned Parisian Agency PhotoAlto are now available via PantherMedia. This addition gives extra flair to PantherMedia’s Premium Collection. PhotoAlto's images distinguish themselves with a special touch of fashion and style that can only originate from Paris. Creatives all around the world hold PhotoAlto in high regard due to its strong technical quality paired with a specific, individual take on subjects and themes of any type. While the main focus of the collection is on people photography, there is also a strong emphasis on food, travel and other subjects.

PhotoAlto is a collection founded by Creatives for Creatives. It differentiates itself from other photo libraries by combining a distinctive European heritage and approach towards photography with a uniquely European tendency that stylistically separates from other providers. This style is characterized by capturing subjects and themes in a natural state while at the same time injecting them with a strong conceptual foundation. The result is a current and timely photo library for those seeking conceptual and descriptive imagery for contemporary advertising and marketing trends. With selective editing and unparalleled post-production work, the PhotoAlto Agency libraries combine avant-garde photographic styles and techniques with a strong conceptual foundation to produce extraordinary images that are both progressive and relevant to all users.

Says Tomas Speight, CEO of PantherMedia, "I have known the team and photographers around Frédéric Cirou personally for many years through my previous work at zefa visual media and Masterfile. Their dedication to photography is fuelled by a special passion that could only originate from Paris. Their images always have a unique mix of flair and style. I am personally thrilled that we can now offer PhotoAlto's collection and take on photography to our customers at PantherMedia."

Sabine Drauz, responsible for photo editing at PantherMedia, added, "Seeing the images of PhotoAlto while they were being uploaded and released online was really inspiring. Their powerful images with their tangible spirit of fashion stand out from the crowd with a French and European feel. I hope our customers will share our excitement and be able to give their projects a special sheen."
