4Corners Images specialises in high quality travel stock photography. Our tightly edited, exclusive collection of travel images contains landscapes, cityscape, food & drink, lifestyle and nature photography.

We believe that quality and creativity are of paramount importance in stock photography and we are proud to work with outstanding Travel and Landscape Photographers who share our values and each of whom brings a distinctive contemporary style to our image library.

4Corners Images was established in 2004 and has since become a leading picture library in the UK for high end travel images. We are a member of BAPLA (British Association of Picture Libraries and Agencies) - The UK´s most important picture industry body as well as CEPIC (Coordination of European Picture Agencies) - a pan European organisation that places itself at the centre of the picture industry. We present you with three inspiring travel image collections:

XL Collection - Quality Stock Photography for creative impact

XL Signature is a collection of our premium quality stock travel photography - captured then crafted, to meet the highest printing standards. These rights managed images are suitable for print at billboard sizes, with no loss of detail.

Products and Services

Until April 2012, 4Corners specialised in RIGHTS MANAGED (RM) Photography. In the spring of 2012 we introduced a new and previously unseen ROYALTY FREE (RF) image collection to broaden 4Corners´ appeal to even more picture buyers. All 4Corners' RF images are made by the same award winning photographers that regularly contribute to 4Corners and all images undergo the same rigorous editing and quality control procedure. All 4Corners' images images can be LICENSED ONLINE in just a few clicks or ordered directly from our picture library team by email or telephone. The fee for RM image licenses is based on length and type of reproduction, the area and medium in which it will be distributed and on whether exclusivity is available or desired. RF image licensing fees are based on the size of the image file required. The reproduction license allows for unlimited use of the image, but reproduction rights may not be transferred to any other party. 4Corners Images takes great care to manage EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS for our RM collection so that you can have an image exclusive to your project when you need it. Our collection is offered exclusively within the United Kingdom and other key territories. We are committed to protect the interests, intellectual property, and livelihoods of the contributors with whom we work, and for this purpose 4Corners has authorised License Compliance Services to manage copyright compliance on our behalf. We have a network of like-minded international partners who license our photography in their own countries. Please contact us for details of our international network. Our images are used in advertising, graphic design, editorial stories, marketing products and more.
