About Us

Our philosophy at Ecuen from the beginning has been that artists come always first and we have it in mind in everything we do. Ecuen offers one of the highest royalty rates in the industry, 40% for every sale. But we only accepts a limited number of artists each year. We want to be sure that we can always highlight their portfolios.

Today, Ecuen is a community made of amazing contributors around the globe. That create incredible high quality images with their own creative vision. We are passionated professional artists that want to achieve the same goal. Be always providing to the stock photography industry high quality images at affordable prices.

If you join us you will not only directly increase the distribution network of your portfolio. Because we are not a massive contributor agency you will have more probability to sell your images in Ecuen that in other agencies with a lot of contributors.

Upload is simple and very fast. You will have your personal FTP, where you can upload your works and Releases and we do the rest of work!

Personal Meetings and Follow Up

Unfortunately, we do not accommodate personal meetings with artists until we have decided we want to represent them. We devote maximum time and energy working for the contributors we already represent, which is exactly what you can expect from us if we become your agent.

If we like what we see, you will be contacted by the contributors assistant to submit additional work, and high resolution files for a technical review.

Please note: we require images to be taken with a minimum 12 megapixel camera.

Due to the large volume of submissions, we will contact only those artists we are interested in.

We look forward to seeing your work!
