www.photosfor.life – the world’s only photo stock, where happiness is real
“Photos for Life” – the world's first charity bank of stock photography has been launched today worldwide. At www.photosfor.lifeyou’ll find unique photos, which feature people with cancer, as well as those, who have already overcome this serious illness. “Photos for Life” is an initiative, which changes the way we think about cancer. All profits from the sales of photos will support therapy of cancer patients, beneficiaries of the Rak’n’Roll Win Your Life! foundation.
- “Photos for Life” proves that cancer is not a death sentence. That people with cancer have a normal live, families, dreams and hobbies. They celebrate life. Every minute of it. Thanks to this project we are able to make them more visible to public to inspire others. - says Jacek Maciejewski, board member at the Rak'n'Roll Win Your Life! foundation which provides aid to people suffering from cancer and attempts to change the way the illness is perceived by the society.
The Rak’n’Roll foundation has invited selection of people across Poland to join the project. Among them you will find men and women, young and old, mothers and fathers. Each person has a different story, but what they all have in common is an experience of cancer. Despite cancer, they love life and want to show it to the world – and that’s what Photos for Life stands for.
- I was the professional rugby player for one of the best teams. Cancer changed my life completely. It was difficult for me and my relatives. But during this time I came to the conclusion that my passion for sport can help me to fight cancer. It was the match of my life and I won it. For me this project is a chance to say to all the people who struggle with serious illness: ’’always fight till the end and never give up’’. – says Michal Rebisz, one of the Photos for Life heroes.
At www.photosfor.life you’ll find beautiful, professional stock photos, which we often see on magazine covers, websites and in ads. The photos were taken by the best Polish commercial photographers from the SHOOTME agency, such as: Jacek Poremba, Paweł Fabjanski, Karol Grygoruk and Łukasz Zietek. The project currently features over hundred photographs divided into seven popular categories, like: Family, Friendship, Career, Relax, Sport, Hobby and Nature. Pictures in Photos for Life are available under the very same rules as images in other stock photography databases and can be used in any commercial project, such as ATL and BTL campaigns or in digital communication.
The ’’Photos for Life’’ project is aimed at companies and individuals. Prices starting from $75 will get you photos in web, magazine, and book-friendly formats. Everyone can support the cause by purchasing photos for a private use for as little as $8. More photos will be added to the stock in the coming weeks. The campaign’s creators hope that the use of high-quality photos from the “Photos for Life” bank will become common practice in Poland and worldwide.
“Photos for Life” is a project executed by the Rak'n'Roll Win Your Life! foundation in cooperation with Isobar agency in Poland. Photo-shoots and cooperation with photographers is managed by the SHOOTME agency. Flash Press Media is responsible for sales and licensing support. Dentsu Aegis Network group brands support project in Poland and abroad.
