Unfortunately, we have to announce that Lensmodern closed its doors this week, on Tuesday, December 12th 2017.
The market has changed to such an extent that, sadly, we simply did not have enough business to keep going.
Increasingly, we found that there were very few clients out there willing to pay reasonable fees for access to high quality exclusive photographic images. They seemed increasingly happy to use cheap Royalty-Free, and, we believe, lower quality photographs.
It is indeed strange that the images which fill media now cost a decreasing proportion of the media costs, rather like putting cheap tyres on an expensive car.
Be assured that we will continue to administer the licence arrangements we have already entered into and that we can be contacted for renewals of those licences on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have also made an arrangement with Millenium Images (http://www.milim.com) to continue to market a select 5,000 images from the Lensmodern collection.
Finally, we would like to offer our grateful thanks to all our clients and contributors for their past support.
Bob, Max and Rolph
