Charles Taylor, managing director of photo library group Photoshot, has announced the purchase of Fotosports a sports photo agency providing comprehensive coverage of world sporting events including Premier league soccer, tennis and F1.
Charles told PAN, “The addition of Fotosports 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. Having our own sports agency is the last piece in the puzzle to Photoshot having a complete live event, wire service.”
“We have now bought a total of sixteen complementary photo businesses since 2001, and service customers from wholly owned offices in New York, London, and Berlin. With this growth, we are confident that we can offer a comprehensive wire service covering news, entertainment and sport. 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.”
