Spotlight on Colourbox Artists

Marketers benefit from the rich portfolio of free images

Odense, Denmark, June 17, 2017 --( As a leading provider of royalty-free images, Colourbox created the campaign “Artist of the Month” to provide a stage for their international artists and their special photography motifs - so that their artworks can reach a wider audience. Additionally, the photo stock agency is giving away 1.000 images for free, which will especially benefit digital, advertising and PR agencies as well as editors and marketers. One of Colourbox’ first Artist of the Months was the German photographer Markus Gann.

After introducing the campaign to the world with the beautiful landscape and nature photography of the Dane Kasper Nymann, the focus was on the spontaneous but nevertheless fascinating travel Images of Markus Gann. “Every month we present a different topic. By this we want to show the world how versatile the artworks of our photographers and illustrators are,” says Mads Martin Jørgensen, CEO of Colourbox. To reach a new audience, the first 1.000 users will receive a free image of their choice.

Furthermore, the artists are using the Artist of the Month stage to present themselves, their work and their experiences. Markus Gann for instance first came across stock photography via an internship in a Munich design agency after deciding to take a break from his actual job in the car industry. At first, photography was only a side job for him, but in 2010 he took the risk of becoming a full-time self-employed photographer and illustrator. “As a vendor I can only see advantages in that kind of campaigns. To be Artist of the Month is a compliment and honour for the work I’ve done,” Markus explains. His stock photography insights and tips can be found on the Colourbox Blog.

This month Markus passed the baton on to the Ukrainian photographer Alena Ozerova. Her stunning lifestyle photography can be explored here: Artist of the Month June.
