Ventura County, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2004 -
AeronauticPictures.com announces the launch of an exclusive series of royalty-free still photography and motion picture stock footage volumes. These extraordinary images have never before been available on a royalty-free basis. While rights-managed access to some of SchmitmanÂs collection will continue, a significant portion of his archives will now be available to new markets worldwide.
The new titles offer a unique value by providing affordable access to hard-to-find and extremely difficult-to-shoot images that illustrate timely concepts like teamwork, high technology, national security, patriotism, service, industry, risk, bravery, travel, energy, globalization, the environment, speed and power.
Even the most cost conscious production budget will find the first volumes of still photographs on airports, airlines, fighters, aircraft carriers and the Boeing B-747 affordable and essential. Royalty free stock photo CDs will sell for only $299.00 (USD) plus shipping. Single images will be available for download for as little as $49.00 (USD).
ÂAs someone who has sought out stock footage for my own documentaries, I know how hard it is to find quality specialized material that will fit within my budget,Â said Craig Schmitman, owner of Aeronautic Pictures. ÂDuring the many years running a stock photography and stock footage library as part of the Aeronautic Pictures production company, I also have a real sense for the relief anxious footage and photo researchers feel when they hear weÂve got that rare shot they were seeking.Â He added, ÂSometimes that relief turned to disappointment when our rates exceeded their budget. With our new royalty-free series, those days should be gone forever.Â
AeronauticPictures.com becomes e-commerce enabled and re-launched as part of this evolutionary change. Royalty free customers will be able to browse the site, preview still or footage content, and then order right from the titleÂs web page. All footage will be delivered on either DVD or CD. Photographic volumes will be delivered on CD media, and single image purchases will be available for direct electronic delivery or shipped on CD.
Future photography titles will cover specific models of civil and military aircraft, in-flight cockpit shots, earthquakes and natural disaster aftermath from the air, test flights and stunning air-to-air photographs of clouds. Upcoming footage offerings include fuel cells and fuel cell cars, ocean and marine ecology, airliners, experimental aircraft, business jets and an extensive collection of historical elements ranging from the wacky beginnings of flight, to World War I and II, and up through the Vietnam War.
