Next stop for celebrity photo agency Backgrid will be Germany. The ‘super-agency’ launched in Feb this year by celebrity photo agencies AKM-GSI, XPOSURE, and FAMEFLYNET USA has today announced the ‘launch of its new endeavor in Germany’ to open on 1 November 2016.
They say: After the successful launch of its Australian operations early this year, Germany marked a natural progression and in line with its goal to create a worldwide super-agency with a strong presence in every country. Backgrid is the brainchild of three of the world’s most well-respected and leading celebrity photo agencies: AKM-GSI, XPOSURE, and FAMEFLYNET USA. By leveraging next generation technology and unparalleled integration, contributors and clients alike benefit from its unbeatable services.
Backgrid’s first office in Sydney has provided the market with a fresh perspective on celebrity media and surpassed expectations in less than a year. Its move to Germany will be as successful, if not more. Director Sven Doornkaat, an industry veteran, proudly hinted that Backgrid’s innovative, proprietary technology “will change the industry forever.” Doornkaat also affirmed that “Backgrid will become a household name in Germany.”
Martin Lueders, Backgrid Germany’s Sales Manager, told PhotoArchiveNews.com “Clients will get what they want, when they want it.” Contributors will also reap the benefits of fast reporting, full transparency, and earning direct percentages because of this groundbreaking partnership. “Sales from around the world will be displayed in realtime,” Lueders mentioned.
