Prisma Bildagentur AG,

and competent support.

An individual image service ranks highly. Our professional images are available online 24/7 while during business hours you can also contact us directly by phone or mail. It is our pleasure to do image searches for you or to give you quotes for the image usages you might plan.

When searching for images or vide clips today one has in theory access to millions of photos or clips on hundreds internet portals. In reality an image search under these conditions is often neither fruitful nor efficient. You can save time and money if you entrust us with quickly and easily proposing images to you that match your conception as closely as possible.

Prisma offers two primary ways for you to find the image you are looking for:

  • Contact us directly by phone, fax or mail! Describe or sketch as in detail the image you have in mind and how you intend to use it. Our team in Switzerland can gear towards your individual requirements and translate your ideas into optimal picture language.
  • Do the image search by yourself on our website, put the images you want into the shopping cart and after checkout download them in high resolution.

We recommend that you register free of charge. Several useful functions on our website are available to you right after you log in. For example you can manage multiple light boxes for your projects and add images to them at your discretion. You can mail the lightboxes to colleagues and clients. For evaluation and layouts the images will be available to you in a higher quality at no cost.

You will have acces to a wide variety of photos with the following subjects: business, lifestyle, people, travel, geography, nature, food, industry, medicine, sports, animals, plants and conceptual photography or historical photos.
