Introduction to Mimages

Mimages is the brainchild of two renowned South African photographers, Merwelene van der Merwe and Christiaan Diedericks, whose collective professional experience spans more than 50 years. The development of this stock library is the culmination of a desire to offer exceptional-quality images to the art-buying community at a fraction of the cost of a conventional photo shoot.

Mimages helps to turn creative ideas into successful designs. It aims to unify the work of numerous photographers with a tightly edited collection of assignment-quality images.

Outstanding features include the site’s user-friendly nature and the diversity and superiority of images available to the creative community, at prices well below other agencies. This is achieved by connecting art buyers and photographers directly, so that they can order images to suit their specific needs, with the outtakes being retained by Mimages and added to the ever-growing stock library.  

All business is conducted on-line, offering many exclusive rights-managed collections along with an expanding archive of royalty-free stock imagery. On-line licensing makes all images available for immediate purchase and download.

Clients ranging from ad agencies and design firms to corporations and a wide a variety of magazines appreciate our ability to produce excellent, ready-to-use images with remarkable speed, while making it affordable to businesses that may not have licensed imagery otherwise.

The library is open to high quality submissions for both royalty-free and rights-managed licence models. Photographers select the images they want to sell, decide what rights to offer and what prices to charge, receiving an industry-best of up to 80 percent of the profits from each image licensed.

The Mimages team welcomes you and look forward to be working with you on making your next project a success.
