Free Stock Photos & Video Clips of YOUR BUSINESS To Use In Your Website or Brochure
Imagine having access to full size, full resolution, professionally processed photos of you or your staff in action. Shots of YOUR BUSINESS with the same fresh, crisp, professional look of photos found on the expensive stock photo sites like iStock Photo, Shutterstock, or Dreamstime Photo. Now, imagine that there was no cost – all you had to do was invite a professional crew to come shoot your business.
Its true. SnowTech Media is currently working on expanding our portfolio of stock business images and we’re looking for shooting opportunities in all types of business areas (see below). If your business is willing to host a shoot at your business, we’ll in turn give you complete access to all of the professional photos or video clips we shoot. You’ll receive the same full-color, full-resolution, print ready photos as our top paying clients… absolutely free.

After we complete the shooting, processing, and deliver the photos and/or video tothe media to you, selected media may be made available for sale through our online stock portfolio at iStockPhoto.com (Ghetty Images).
Our Guarantee – at no time during this process
will you be asked to pay for anything.

Simple 6 Step Process
- You Fill Out The Application Form. Tell us about your business using the form on the right hand side of this page. Let us know why you think your business would be a great subject for a photo or video shoot. We usually respond within 24 to 48 hours.
- Together We Plan The Shoot. If your business is selected, our Producer will work with you to plan all of the details of the shoot. We’ll work with you to understand exactly what you’re looking for – as well as let you know what we’re looking for. Together we’ll pull comps of the style and subject of photos to shoot. In short, we’ll make sure that there are no surprises and that everyone is comfortable with what we will shoot and what results to expect.
- The Shoot Is Scheduled. We’ll work with you to select the best time and location for the shoot and book a time for the shoot. We’ll follow up with you before the shoot to confirm the appointment.
- Professional Shoot At Your Location – We’ll come to your location (within the continental U.S.) with all of the equipment required to capture professional images and/or video. Our directors and crew are used to shooting around working environments. On location, we work for you – we will be respectful and courteous with your employees and clients, follow any safety procedures, and work to minimize any disruption in your business day.
- We Post Process Your Photos or Video – Our professional editors will post process your photos or video to the same level that we would for our top clients. Depending on your shoot, we will create one or both of:
- Custom Photography – A complete set of professionally lighted and composed photos, professionally retouched and media project ready. These photos are extra large high resolution images, suitable for any web or print project.
- Custom Video Clips – A complete set of professionally lighted and composed video footage, cut into clips ready for your video editing project. All clips are HD quality shot by a professional video crew.
- Delivery By Download – When the final media is ready (usually 7 to 10 days), we will send you a web login where you can download the media directly to your computer.
