Getty Images history
Founded by Mark Getty and Jonathan Klein in 1995, Getty Images has embraced disruption and change, turning a fragmented, analog stock photo business into a multi-billion-dollar, global ecommerce industry leader and just as importantly, trusted brand. It was the first company to license imagery via the web, subsequently moving the entire industry online — and has been a core driver in continuing to move the industry forward with breakthrough licensing models, innovative digital media management tools and a comprehensive offering of every kind of visual content possible.
