HOW WE WORK

Colour Balance Images seeks creators from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Central and South America as well as those connected to the diaspora. We license royalty-free images, illustrations, footage and vectors featuring culturally, ethnically and racially diverse people, communities and environments. We provide a platform for underestimated creatives to showcase their talent and get paid fairly too. Every creator receives a 50% royalty for each of their images sold. As a platform, we do not restrict contributors in any capacity from creating freely - independently or for other clients.
