About us

Our vision is to innovate and empower storytelling by providing photographers and media outlets with powerful tools to get the best truthful news coverage possible.

We strive to make a platform where it’s easy, enticing and worthwhile for anyone to help media cover the news. We firmly believe Byrd can help bring real stories to life that otherwise wouldn’t see the light of day.

There is a jungle of email addresses and phone numbers where people can send in their photos and videos to news media. It's outdated! We have created a service that is a one-stop shop. By uploading your photo or video to Byrd, you make it accessible to a bunch of media straight away and can sell your work many times. As a journalist, you can request specific content, and you will not spend precious time on verification, clearing rights, and negotiating prices. 

Along with Byrd’s photographers and our customers we can bring user-generated content to the next level. We help distributing and verifying photos and videos from all over the world, so journalists can turn them into news stories.
