What is Shutterstock?

Shutterstock is a stockphoto company

Shutterstock is an American stock photography, stock footage, stock music, and editing tools provider headquartered in New York City. Founded in 2003 by programmer and photographer Jon Oringer, Shutterstock maintains a library of around 125 million royalty-free stock photos, vector graphics, and illustrations, with around 4 million video clips and music tracks available for licensing. Originally a subscription site only, Shutterstock expanded beyond subscriptions into a la carte pricing in 2008, and has been publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange since 2012. Since its founding Shutterstock has acquired a handful of other companies, starting with Bigstock in 2009 and followed by digital asset management software provider WebDAM in 2014. After acquiring Rex Features and PremiumBeat in 2015, Shutterstock recently announced a partnership with the Associated Press. It also has licensing deals with companies such as Penske Media Corporation. The company had over 100,000 contributors as of March 2016, with an “active customer base of 1.4 million people in 150 countries.”
