Since 1989, PhotoAssist has distinguished itself as one of the nation’s most comprehensive, independent providers of photo research, editorial, and rights-and-permissions services.
We’ve helped the U.S. Postal Service develop and maintain the most comprehensively researched stamp program in the world.
We’ve located more than 250,000 images, including many rare photographs, for magazines, museums, government agencies, publishing houses, and bestselling authors.
We’ve written and fact-checked text for a wide range of books, museum exhibitions, catalogs, and collectibles.
We’ve advised major firms about intellectual property issues for national advertising campaigns.
Collectively, PhotoAssist staffers have spent decades immersed in editing, publishing, and photo research while also cultivating individual expertise in such diverse subjects as law, science, history, and the arts.
Our backgrounds vary, but one trait unites us: our obsessive attention to detail. We enjoy finding that elusive photo, catching those not-so-obvious errors, and writing highly accurate copy that our clients can depend on.
