In 1999 James West, along with his uncle Mike Fischer, founded Alamy. Alamy packaged digital photography in a way that grabbed the market’s attention, and allied with the equitable approach to its photographers the company reached its first million images in just over 4 years and became profitable in 5 years.
And now, fourteen years after it was founded, Alamy has the largest online collection of images and video clips. As a new player on the block, Alamy didn’t have a multimillion dollar legacy of non-digital images that it had to deal with. So from the outset the company was lean and agile and able to make the most of the advantages offered to it from new and emerging technology. Indeed, Alamy has used technology to great effect to drive the market forward.
