We are Fairpicture

Your access to local photographers and video journalists. professional. fast. fair.

A global Network of local visual creators

Wherever your projects are: the Fairpicture visual creators are already on site. We maintain a global network of experienced local photographers and video journalists who know what makes a good story.

Simple and uncomplicated processes

We share a passion for photography. And we keep processes simple. You tell us where and when you need visual stories and what is important to you. We suggest a photographer or a video journalist - and take care of everything else. Challenge us with short-term assignments.

Professional photographs and videos

High-quality and touching pictures and videos - we don't want the ordinary, but the memorable and authentic. This is what we are looking for, together with the local visual creators and you. A mix of up-and-coming talents and experienced professionals in our network of visual creators offers the best starting point for this.
