Art Directors and Trip

About Art Directors & Trip


Art Directors & Trip was formed in 1996 when Trip Photographic Library acquired the Art Directors Photo Library. The Art Directors Photo Library was established in the early 1970s and TRIP was set up by photographers Helene Rogers and Bob Turner in 1992.


We are committed to providing a real service in an increasingly impersonal environment. As an example of this we have made our entire image data-base available on the web-site. This means that you will have access to data on 450,000 images and we will scan your personal selection and make these available to you by your preferred method. However, if you are still unable to find the right image from a search on our web site, we will always undertake to do our best to find that image and supply it to you in the most appropriate format for your needs. We are a library run by photographers and therefore possess the special skills to find and produce the perfect images to meet your needs. All of our film based images are drum-scanned with colour, tone and contrast controlled in a way that is only possible after years of experience of working with images. We take a real pride in the quality of the scanned images we produce.


Our clients' image requirements are met from a file of approximately 1 million images and as a "live" library we are constantly adding new stock to those files. The files cover the entire world and we carry extensive coverage of countries and cities and not just the obvious landmarks. Importantly, this includes people, customs, festivals, religion, lifestyle, workstyle, including minor and major industry and commerce, agriculture, landscape, cityscape, flora and fauna.


We are not tied to a rigid pricing structure and pride ourselves on the flexibility we are able to offer in order to work within a client's budget. We are able and willing to work on entire projects, will go out of our way to obtain the right images and at the same time to offer very competitive prices. Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss a price for the use of a single image or the pricing of a project or series of projects. We are convinced that the only way to proceed and prosper is to get to know the clients that we work with!
