After many months of submissions, evaluations and paperwork, I am very glad to say that I have signed contracts with some of the major photographic agencies at an international level.
From now on, a substantial part of my work will be represented by Getty Images from US, Biosphoto from France, Oxford Scientific and Photolibrary from the UK, Aflo from Japan and Prisma Online from Switzerland. Getty Images is nowadays the leading photographic agency in the world and focuses on generic imagery of all kinds. Biosphoto and Oxford Scientific are the major specialized on Nature photographic agencies in France and the UK respectively (and at an international level) and Aflo and Prisma Online are the biggest generic agencies in the japanese and swiss market. Even if these times have seen major changes in the stock industry, it is still essential to team up with the best players in the market so that you can leave them the selling and focus on the shooting. For the time being my images are smoothly arriving to the agencies, so that they will start appearing on their catalogues in some months time.
At the same time this year I will be (at last!) starting to fill up my personal Rafael Rojas Stock gallery, where everybody interested in my images will be able to browse, pay and download the images for commercial-editorial use of any kind under licence.
