MORE ABOUT OUR MISSION

Having years of experience, we believe that the legal way is the most efficient and protective for photography itself. In our opinion post-licensing as an alternative to “the legal way” not only harms photography as a profession, but also as art. If image thieves only have to pay the license fee, as if they would have done if they purchased the photograph in the first place, they will not hesitate to steal again. PhotoClaim aims to educate those who stole a photo once to buy it legally next time.

As our company was created by a photographer and for photographers, we know how much time, effort, determination, and money some photo shots cost. To enjoy high-quality photography in the future, photographers must have means to finance their own business.

DO YOU WANT 

TO FOCUS ON 

YOUR 

PHOTOGRAPHY?

Be free to go once more to this shooting

location,

fly half of the globe to capture a unique scene,

and be able to pay for mastering skills.

As photographers, we’re familiar with the problems in the industry, with the decreasing revenue shares from agencies and the increasing amount of hobby photographers that give their work away for free.

Everyone is talking about it, but the real problem is hardly understood: Companies stopped buying photos.

There is a big flaw in the system – at least in Europe. If you prove a company had stolen your photo, all you would get is (sometimes double) your usual licensing fee. As an economist, I’m aware that it’s a logical decision for companies to simply steal photos instead of buying them since they get away with it most of the time.

I decided to do something about it and started protecting my copyrights. I’ve built an international network of attorneys in order to protect my photographic career and I’m glad that I can now offer you help as well.

Let’s put an end to image theft!
