Our Philosophy
We no longer accept the business model of traditional stock photo agencies, large corporations that are paying only a small fraction of their sales to their contributors. By licensing images from our website you support artists directly. Both, our content creators and our image buyers benefit from it. Since we don't pay agency commissions, our license fees are lower than those of traditional stock photo agencies.

We are not interested in creating a huge stock archive with millions of average, repetitive photographs. Our goal is to create a tightly edited with hand-picked collection of artworks from our talented contributors. Artworks that inspire, stir emotions and imagination, touche our deepest feelings, whether light or dark. We want our customers and our contributors to feel at home at MaximImages and to treat them with the warmth and respect they deserve.

Most of our imagery is offered under Rights Managed license that requires you to provide the intended usage details. Rights Managed license fees are calculated to give you the lowest cost licenses based on your usage specifics. Rights Managed license also gives you an option of buying limited or unlimited exclusive rights to an image for a specified period of time, which can be important for certain applications where uniqueness within a particular usage or a territory is important.
