Licensed editorial photos from award-winning photojournalists across Canada and around the world. We grant copyright permission for you to use photos on your digital, broadcast and print properties from CP and sources such as The Associated Press, CFL, Canadian Olympic Committee and more.
Custom photos from our national and global network of freelance photographers, managed by our commercial division and AP Content Services. Clients hire us for photo shoots and events, trusting our expertise in capturing photos that inspire action and increase engagement.
How are licensed photos different than custom photos and what's the best mix for you?
Understanding the benefits of licensed photos versus custom photos helps determine the best mix for your needs.
Licensed photos bring credibility to your brand and audiences tend to share content from trusted, well-known sources such as CP that has been telling Canada's story for 100 years.
Custom photos convey your brand message and voice and are for your exclusive use.
Licensed photos help you publish more frequently, at a fraction of the cost of producing it all from scratch since the content is already created and ready to use.
