We are a bespoke Assignment service. So if you need a specialist photographer in an unusual part of the world we will sort out it for you.

If you are a "provider of content" - a photographer, a PR, a talent agent, a unit photographer, a photographer with special access, a content owner, a cartoonist... GRNlive Pictures can help you maximise the revenue to be collected from your asset, access, archive, property or IP opportunity  

You're a profesional freelancer or intermittent event owner with a great set of pictures, or premium access to an event  - why would you want to put them with a global agency when the story is a local story or a UK magazine story? Equally you've got a great global story (NB v. rare.) why would you want to put it with a locally based distributor ? (err. Yes this is where I might recommend pushing to my old friends at Getty, or similiar) for more info.


If you are a "user of services" on the demand side - a broadcaster, a newspaper, a PR, a distributor, a media owner, a website... GRNlive Pictures can help you find, book, administer and deliver the service you require.

You need to find and assign a trusted, accredited, insured operator, filmmaker or photojournalist in a hostile part of the world; GRNlive Pictures taps into the multi-skilled journalist network of GRNlive to fulfil your assignment. for more info.


GRNlive Pictures matches buyers and sellers of editorial photography. We are a Photographer's Agent. A broker of editorial content, whether that be photos, video, slideshows, court sketches, cartoons, interviews, assignments or distribution deals.
