With over 80,000 professional photographers and over 500 brands hosting 400 million files, we accomplish this through two solutions: PhotoShelter for photographers and Photoshelter for Brands.

It offers beautiful websites, secure storage, plus over 100 professional-grade features to help photographers take their businesses to the next level. Our latest product, Photoshelter for Brands, is a centralized asset management platform that helps businesses quickly, easily and affordably harness the power of their visual content -- anytime, anywhere.
