Ingram Image takes hands on approach with new ‘trades’ shoot & commissioned illustrations


London, UK, Nov. 2, 2011 – Ingram Image have created a new DVD collection ‘Ultimate Trades & Objects’ – a comprehensive library of over 1300 white background photos and layered EPS vectors. The 2-volume set was conceived an alternative to the Americanised ‘occupations’ images currently available.

Released last week, Volume One contains 300 images depicting trades and occupations. Ingram identified a lack of accurately detailed, contemporary images in this area and working with London based photographer Alexander Steiner and professional illustrator Michael Travers have produced a collection of genuinely stylish images.

Louis Ingram, CEO of Ingram Image added “For years our clients have pushed us to offer up-to-date trades and business images. We’ve found them impossible to source so we felt it important to get involved in the image making process ourselves. Our Senior Picture Editor art directed and supervised the casting and prop selection process. He was also in regular communication with Michael as the vector illustrations were produced.


Ultimate Trades & Objects Volume 2 is a unique collection of just over 1000 of the best ‘photo objects’ from Ingram’s royalty free library. The diverse selection of designer friendly images includes a surprised black cat, a burnt piece of toast and a house of playing cards!

Both volumes are now available at and all 1300 images can be viewed by following this link – Ultimate Trades & Object­­s.
