Journal Collective

Apr 2015
  • Journal Collective started off as a high aesthetic stock photography website; since then, things are developing. I N S I G H T I founded the company with another professional creative in 2015. We've had first-hand experience of how irritating it is to be charged a fortune for terrible stock imagery. Our competitors demand expensive rates, awful restrictions of usage, and not to mention their confusing copyright rules. Our business model had this in mind. With a growing creative team, our stock-photography is completely at your disposal, whether it’s for your blog, business website, company leaflet or social media accounts - we’re the platform you can use to communicate to the world in the best visual way possible. Our copyright rules are simple. Have a browse, if you like our style, you can also hire us for bespoke creative content services.
