living4media, the new home and living image agency, is expanding fast.  Launched in April 2011 in Germany, the online collection is already available in 43 countries. This rapid growth can be put down to the long experience and established global distribution network of the agency’s parent company, StockFood, the world’s leading food media agency.
In a very short time, living4media has reached its objective of becoming a specialized home and living image agency on five continents.  An international English-language website at has been available since the middle of last year alongside the site for German-speaking countries.  Hot on the heels of recent launches in the US, UK, Poland and the Netherlands, a Francophone site for online image-buyers launched in February.  
The international distribution of living4media’s image collection is organized through exclusive distribution partners in each country, most of whom already specialize in the field of interiors, homes and gardens. Their clients are professionals working with images in media, advertising, trade and industry. At living4media, personal service is a high priority, and customers enjoy individual attention from specialist teams. “It’s not enough simply to offer an international collection: with representatives in different countries, we can be in tune with current trends in every part of the world. Each national team is familiar with the specific demands of their location and can offer a customized service to every single client,” said living4media Managing Director Martin Skultety.

Living4media unites the work of renowned interior photographers and feature producers from all around the world, including stars of the scene such as Simon Upton, Per Magnus Persson, Winfried Heinze, Alexander van Berge, Christine Bauer, Magdalena Björnsdotter, Michael Paul and many more.  It also includes a growing selection of international specialist providers like The Interior Archive, View Pictures and Taverne Agency.  The collection brings together both rights-managed and royalty-free images and complete features – high quality articles with extensive editorial texts and up to 100 different images.  Thanks to technological innovations such as drag-and-drop lightbox functionality and smart search provision, unique in this niche sector of the image market, has already established itself as an industry leader.
