Deliver Your News to the World

International launch of roosimages, a unique, high quality, large format, stock image bank.


AMSTERDAM, 23 May 2005, A new, internet image bank, specializing in large format, high quality images from some of the best photographers in the world, has just opened for business.

Founded by world-renowned fashion photographer, Jerome Esch and international photographers’ agent, Peter Sterling; roosimages represents quality, not quantity. Unique, unexpected imagery instead of the clichés delivered by the larger image banks.

From fashion and people, to creative landscapes, cityscapes and abstracts, 80% of the roosimages library is shot on larger format cameras and scanned at up to 200mb, offering image definition unheard of in the stock world. Most web-based agencies still work, for the majority, with 35mm.

The roosimages site architecture gives professionals unprecedented information about every image: source film-format, grain structure, and a series viewer. “Quality-wise, we start where most other agencies stop. You could cover a wall with any of our images.” Said Jerome Esch, Creative Director for roosimages. “It’s a joy to see so much great contemporary photography being showcased at last.”

“Because roosimages is new, we don’t have any out-of-date, ‘seen before’ images. Our library is fresh, provocative and so ‘unstock’. It knocks the socks off what the big stock agencies are providing.” Continues Peter Sterling, roosimages’ Marketing Director.

A unique feature for professional users is the MOODBOARD/POWERPOINT SUBSCRIPTION. Every image in the library is available to subscribers to download at a medium resolution, (1-2mb downloadable/10-20mb unpacked) allowing quality, A3-size presentations (non commercial usage).

Another unique initiative is roosimages’ ART IN THE OFFICE consultancy service. Providing large-scale image installations for businesses, hotels, cruise ships and public spaces.

roosimages invites the fashion, media, advertising and design industry to familiarize themselves with these new, unique images. Each day, more new photographs are being added to the library, after having been scanned and colour-checked to the roosimages quality standards.

Peter Sterling again, “If you want the stock answer, go to one of the large stock agencies. If you don’t want to wear what everybody else is wearing, come to us. We’re the new Haute-Couture in the image bank world.”
