About FlashStock

FlashStock is a provider of customized on-demand visual content to brand-based clients and agencies in North America and the United Kingdom. Working with its global network of consumer photographers, FlashStock adds thousands of client-briefed photographs to its collection each week. Different from other stock photography services, the FlashStock model allows brands to co-create authentic online and traditional marketing campaigns using on-brand images gleaned from the collections of a select group of photographers called the FlashStock Flasharazzi. The Flasharazzi consists of consumer photographers from around the world who capture brands and/or moments that suit a brand's described concept. This on-demand service saves brands time and money they would otherwise spend sifting through large photo collections or directing expensive photo shoots. Images are quickly vetted for quality and uploaded to the FlashStock image library, ready for immediate use by client brands.
