Citizen Stock was launched in May 2010 as a source of fresh, new Rights Managed and Royalty Free stock photography images featuring real people. The models aren’t models at all, but children, moms, dads, grandparents, skateboarders, lawyers, teachers, musicians, chefs, artists, office workers, clothing designers, shop clerks and small business owners, to name a few.
In addition to homegrown New Yorkers, the real people who model for Citizen Stock originate from many parts of the U.S. and from a diverse group of countries all over the world. They all find their way to a photo studio in Manhattan’s Noho neighborhood where they pose for award-winning photographers Sherrie Nickol and David Katzenstein.
Photographed against a white background, and in a series of activities and clothing, the real models offer a unique and accessible collection of images for the advertising, design and media industries. Citizen Stock offers a consistent blend of emotion and style and a depth of unique, high quality imagery.
