A freelance photographer turned entrepreneur, Sandeep Maheshwari, was quick to take cue from the needs of the Indian advertising and marketing industry of the ready availability of stock images. He realised that the commercial stock photography, which was a US$ 1.5 billion industry globally, was virtually absent in India. He thus launched ImagesBazaar.com in the year 2006.
With over 800,000 images, http://www.imagesbazaar.com today has the world's largest stock of Indian images where one can search, purchase and download as per his needs. The website has proved to be a great hit with small, medium and large businesses by providing them ready-to-use high quality images for advertising, marketing and publishing. In short, it slashes down the cost of producing a shoot from lakhs of rupees to a few thousands and the time from weeks to a few minutes. At present, over 6000 brands in more than 42 countries use images from http://www.imagesbazaar.com for their advertising, marketing and publishing needs.
