Who we are
Verbatim is a new and unique agency representing internationally renowned photojournalists and videographers who are not only highly experienced in photojournalism, but also adept at commercial and advertising photography. Collectively they have been assigned by all of the major publications globally and received every prestigious editorial industry award.
Through Verbatim, these remarkable visual story tellers and their unique skills are available to brands who are looking to create powerful, compelling and authentic narratives to illustrate their own story.
We will drive opportunity in the corporate citizenship and commercial advertising sectors, but we will also continue to support our photographers’ important journalistic projects, which is the DNA of the agency.
How we work
What we do
The team at Verbatim has worked together for over 10 years with our photographers and videographers – previously within Getty Images who remain Verbatim’s key investors and partners.
We specialize in handling stills and video projects for international corporate clients, commercial agency clients, as well as NGO and foundation initiatives. We are experts in project management and logistics and will ensure your message is clearly and sensitively conveyed.
Over the years we have worked directly with brands such as Coca-Cola, Adidas, Ford, Sears, MAC, Shell, Montblanc and many others. We have worked on humanitarian initiatives with the likes of Nike Foundation, Human Rights Watch, the ICRC, UNICEF, WWF, the Global Business Coalition, and a raft of other NGO/CSR organizations. We have also worked on commercial campaigns with agencies that include JWT, Leo Burnett, Grey, BBH, Saatchi & Saatchi, M&C Saatchi, Iris, R/GA, 360i and Weber Shandwick.
Complementing our team of renowned photojournalists we also have a rapidly growing number of videographers and over 700 photographers available via our agency in more than 70 countries worldwide.
Global & Local
We will work within your budget to source the right talent for your assignment. Whether its photojournalism in Chad, studio portraiture shoot in Brazil or an industrial video shoot in France, we have the reach and local knowledge to fulfil your brief.
Our in-house team has the experience, resources and talent to help. We will take care of all the logistical requirements for your commission and coordinate our photographers, allowing you to focus on the message rather than the process.
We can also raise awareness of your projects by capitalizing on the power of our talents’ social media reach. Couple this with the option of making your content available via Getty Images (the largest content distribution platform in the world) and we are able to offer you unparalleled opportunities to amplify awareness.
