Been Leaning in for Awhile

(Originally posted on the Visual Connections blog)

A few weeks back, Getty and Leanin.org announced a partnership whereby Getty donates 10% of license fees to LeanIn.org from sales of this collection.
This got us thinking and we wondered about sources of imagery of women, so we compiled a list of resources that we know of and use.
When looking for dynamic and diverse images of contemporary women, please remember these collections/agencies too:

By the way, most of these sources are partially/wholly owned by female entrepreneurs.

The stock industry has a history of female trailblazers who have been leaning in for generations: Ellen Boughn, Susan Turneau, Beate Chelette, Cathy Aron, Sonia Wasco, Jane Kinne, Danita Delimont, Lady Harriet Bridgeman and Sally Lloyd to name  a small handful.

Downtown

Shooting three models in five downtown LA locations in under six hours is the kind of thing that makes us excited about our job. The images from this night time shoot with photographer Pete Bohler are both creative and architecturally beautiful, showcasing some of Los Angeles’ unique character and personality. From metro stations to bus stops and dark freeway underpasses, Pete did an amazing job recognizing beauty in places that few people see it.
