Frank Gärtner, founder of franky242 photography:
Having a background in design and working professionally with interactive media and online marketing for many years, the step to take photos and to offer them through Microstock agencies was rather natural.
As a next step I created this website, providing you with the option of buying my photos directly on this site.
For me as the artist this means that I am more flexible in presenting my work – you will find categories and galleries showcasing my photos. Plus of course I receive 100% of the royalties and don´t need to share with another agency.
For you as a buyer besides the better guidance through my portfolio the benefits are that you can pay for any given image in any given size directly and don´t need to obtain credit packs, subscription or other beforehand. Plus I am publishing photos here on this site exclusively that are not available elsewhere. From now on my new photos will appear here first before I will be submitting them to other agencies, so you can benefit from “fresh” material as well.
Payments are happening via PayPal, providing you with an easy and secure way to pay since you do not need to provide any payment details on this site.
Of course if you prefer to obtain my photos through an agency, please feel free to do so, you will find links to my portfolios on agencies such as Shutterstock, Fotolia, iStockphoto, Dreamstime below.
I hope you enjoy browsing my portfolio – maybe you find motives of interest for you.
In that case it would be very kind of you if you´d inform me about the usage of my photos as it is of course very motivating for a photographer to see his images used elsewhere.In case you need photos not available here on the site or you want to discuss licensing options, please feel free to get in touch with me.
