Photographic Agency

Since 1946, the photographic agency has been promoting and broadcasting the photographic material which it realizes the shots and those whose valorization is entrusted to it. It gathers collections of national museums, the Louvre, Orsay, Versailles, Pompidou, Quai Branly, but also Cluny, Saint-Germain-en-Laye, and regional museums such as the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille, museums of the city of Marseille, etc. Today, it manages a catalog of nearly 1.2 million digitized images, from prehistory to the present days, of which 1 million are available on its website for image professionals (publishing, press, audiovisual, products in particular), and on its general public site. The photo agency also deploys a vast network of broadcasters that extends to about fifteen countries (Germany, Central and Latin America, Canada, China, South Korea, USA, Japan ...). The Photo Agency has always been at the forefront of image technology. In recent years this evolution has resulted in a transition to all digital, the arrival of images in giga pixels - the very high definition - as well as reproductions in 3D.

A real team work

The photographic agency brings together a team of professionals trained in advanced techniques: photographers, technicians, documentalists. The transversality between the photographers, the laboratory, the documentalists, the sales and the sales administration is the keystone of the organization of the Photo Agency. It ensures the technical and scientific quality of its images and offers a real quality of service to image seekers. Its production line is automated, streamlined and optimized. Equipment and equipment are regularly renewed to adapt to changing technologies: photo-digital cameras, 3D sensors, scanners, servers, etc.
