The LightRocket collection on Getty Images

I want in...

If you would like to be a part of the LightRocket collection on Getty Images, you'll need to subscribe to a LightRocket Power plan. You'll need to be producing a regular flow of high quality and relevant news and editorial features and to have an existing archive on LightRocket of at least 500 images (and/or videos). And you'll need plenty of talent too.

Your application is unlikely to be successful if you don't have 500 images on LightRocket and your application is more likely to be successful if you have lots of well edited galleries that are published on LightRocket.

However, if you are already submitting images to an agency that is uploading them to the Getty site, it is unlikely that your application will be approved.

Before applying, we recommend you do some searches on Getty and compare what you have to offer to the kind of work being uploaded to Getty by their staff photographers, stringers, wires and other agencies. If you are photographing places or events already well covered by Getty, your application is more likely to be declined.

We are now able to submit video footage (short editorial clips of about 10 to 30 seconds) to Getty's video collection - so if you shoot professional editorial video and would like to upload to Getty's site, you would be wise to make one of your galleries a selection of your best clips when you apply.
