Speaker of the Day: Alfonso Gutierrez


Alfonso Gutierrez will be introducing the conference Comment concilier le marché et la création? Making Media and Images Financially Sustainable? On Wednesday, June 5th at 10:00 to 11:45. 

Alfonso Gutierrez founded his company, agefotostock, more than 44 years ago, when he, a former chemist, decided to stop working in the pharmaceutical industry to become a photographer and produce what he wanted to shoot and sell the results afterwards. There was no business intention to become number one of anything, only the desire to enjoy photography. Today, Alfonso Gutierrez is still personally editing close to a million images a year that agefotostock receives from their photographers, and manages a company that distributes a fast growing 55 million images from over 400 collections and thousands of photographers. His company is helping more than 80 different companies around the world to work in an aggregation platform called THP (Technological Hosting Platform). The THP sets up how millions of images flow from storage to clients hands using standard identifiers and unified licensing parameters. Satisfaction is the word that best describes the history of Alfonso Gutierrez; create a place to work in what satisfies the team.
