Photoshot Acquires The Travel Library

UK based Photoshot has announced it’s 15th acquisition with the purchase of The Travel Library

From Charles Taylor, MD of Photoshot

Charles said, “The addition of The Travel Library and TTL-Plus to our family of collections is another significant milestone in our plan to establish Photoshot as a quality based, full service, international, photo library group. The collections perfectly compliment our existing travel and nature collections World Pictures, NHPA, Bruce Coleman, Picture Nature, Photos Horticultural and Oceans Image making us a powerhouse in this area.”

“We are extremely excited at becoming the new custodian of this wonderful collection and will do everything possible to build on the long tradition of quality and service that The Travel Library has provided for many years. “

“We have now bought a total of fifteen complementary photo businesses since 2001,” Charles continued, “and service customers from wholly owned offices in New York, London, and Berlin. With this growth, we are confident that we will be a leading supplier of travel and nature imagery in UK and beyond. Growth in this area fits with Photoshot’s plans to supply a broad range of quality imagery to picture buyers, be the image a live news picture, an archival record, an entertainment event or exclusive celebrity portrait, a travel shot or a wildlife image or a creative shoot. Photoshot is one of only a few agencies that can supply this mixture of live and stock imagery.”

Philip Enticknap, Managing Director of The Travel Library Limited says, “I am sure that this change of ownership will be great for The Travel Library and TTL-Plus. The market has been difficult for all agencies in the last few years, and becoming part of a bigger, more diverse group will enable the collections to compete more effectively in the future. When looking for a company to build upon the existing strengths of the Travel Library, I wanted to make sure that the new owners were a picture business committed to photographers and great photography. Photoshot has admirably demonstrated that it shares this desire with their acquisition of several other leading libraries and the way those businesses have thrived under the Photoshot umbrella.”
