Anchorage, AK. Alaska Stock Images, the largest Alaskan stock photo agency, announced their expansion into the oriental marketplace via two new partnerships with Far East stock photo agencies, Top Photo Corp. based in China and Topic Photo Agency of Korea.
"As part of our strategy to maximize our position in the global marketplace, we are actively developing international relationships with solid, reputable stock photo agencies," said Laurie Campbell, Alaska Stock's Director of Marketing and Sales. "Both these agencies enjoy strong market presence, impressive collections, and deliver excellent customer service. We are excited to partner with Topic and Top Photo and believe we have a bright future together."
Top Photo's Sales Manager remarks, "We are very happy to have a new photo supplier which focuses on Alaskan images. In today's market, as local images become very important and local suppliers can deliver more images that speak to global consumer's concepts, feeling and thoughts, we find that we have a great source for Alaskan photography with Alaska Stock Images, which industry giants Corbis, Getty, Jupiter do not have. If a customer looks for Alaskan images, they will find that we have the largest quantity and the best quality." Head quartered in Taipei, Taiwan with three branch offices in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou, China, Top Photo is the premier stock agency in the Greater China market.
Established in 1992 and based in Seoul, Topic Photo Agency is the leading stock photo resource in Korea. "We are pleased to let our clients experience Alaska Stock's unique, fresh and specialized images of Alaska," says CEO of Topic Photo Agency, Myungjo Lee. "There is no doubt that these promising images would meet our fastidious clients, who are accustomed to Topic's high-end images."
Owner of Alaska Stock Images, Jeff Schultz, comments, "Alaska Stock is thrilled to expand our global presence into Taiwan, China and Korea.
