Ultimately, we want to wake up in a world
where are more people who buy rather than steal,
and where photographers can feel safe
because their rights are protected.
WHAT WE DO FOR YOU?
We save your time
and find promising cases for you.
We assign you a personal “guardian”,
your own Case Manager.
We don’t use post licensing,
it harms photography.
Attorneys do everything on your behalf.
At the end of the negotiations, you receive the licensing fee.
No Win, No Fee. You only pay us 35% if the case is successful.
If not – there is no financial risk on your side.
We are more than a business.
We are a community of full-time photographers and those who aspire to live from photography.

IF YOU SKIP THE SIGN UP – YOU KEEP ON LOSING MONEY YOU DESERVE FROM YOUR COPYRIGHTS
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.

TO FOCUS ON
Be free to go once more to this shooting
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!
