Our Archive Is Available For Production Companies
We can (and do) make some of our high resolution photographs or video footage available for use in books, magazines, broadcast TV programmes, or other documentary video productions.
In general you should expect to pay for the use of our library footage and/or still images, as it does cost us to capture and archive the material in the first place. Likewise there is a time factor and cost involved with dealing with individual requests that we have to take into consideration However, we always to try and keep useage and licensing charges to a reasonable and realistic level.
We're happy to hear from you. In the first instance you should explain to us what your project is, what resources you are looking for and what you want to do with the material we provide. You should also make us an offer of how much you are willing to pay for the material. Generally we do not have a fixed schedule of fees as we prefer to negotiate with you a fee that is appropriate for the use of the material and one that fits within your production budget (we find this approach is more equitable for production companies of various sizes).
Please note that the videos on our Online Channel represent only a portion of what we have in our archive, particularly with respect to our footage of World War One aircraft. We currently have what is probably one of the worlds largest archives of contemporary footage of World War One aircraft types.
