Editorial photo agency Face to Face up for sale earlier this year has a new owner.
In an email to customers this week the agency’s owner Michael Wiese announced the changes:
Dear valued customers,
I would like to inform you that my agency “face to face” has been taken over by Siri Vorbeck on 01.07.2019.
She received from me the complete archive (over 9 million photos) and the image suppliers including all data and information.
She is looking forward to the new challenges.
About Siri Vorbeck – as the Creative Director she developed zefa visual media in Düsseldorf to one of the most renowned European picture agencies, worldwide known for its stylistically high-quality imagery and regularly awarded with design prizes. In 2004 Corbis acquired zefa visual media and Siri was commissioned with the creative direction of the European teams in London.
With many years of experience, Siri Vorbeck will expand the range of images and build face to face to one of the highest quality celebrity agencies not just in Germany but in Europe.
The daily business for you as a customer will not be effected. The daily image upload will continue 24/7 directly in to your offices.
Your access to Picturemaxx and the agreed conditions remain valid.
Due to Siri Vorbeck living in London “Face to Face” is run as a limited company based in the UK.
For your payments, a German account and an English account are now available.
We will inform you in a separate email about the new bank account.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
It has always been a pleasure working with you and I would like to thank you personally for your trust and the great professional cooperation in all this years. After 35 years in the industry, I am moving on to new horizons.
I am confident, that I have found in Siri Vorbeck a perfect successor.
She looks forward to working with and continue the good cooperation.
With the best regards
