Cinthia & Hugo

Our lives were changed with just seconds of our story.” Newlyweds Cinthia and Hugo never imagined the first few minutes of their first dance (caught on a smartphone camera) would end up in a Nivea ad and change their lives forever.

We are officially official! Thanks again for taking such good care of us through this process. We’re using the money to take the whole family to SPACE CAMP! (which is also making 1988 me very, very excited!)

When I saw myself I honestly burst into tears. The Samsung Galaxy Note line has been with me for years and I’m so happy to be a part of such a huge project like this showcasing the new Galaxy Note 8 to the family. Thanks again!

Tayler A.

The entire process was smooth. Who knew you could get paid for one of those videos you make on a whim (the kind you think are only funny to you)?! We were able to fully pay for the treadmill that was featured in our short clip as a result of working with Catch&Release!

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Catch&Release on multiple licenses and their process and professionalism is top quality! The team is always extremely helpful, informative and just great people. They treat the work of their contributors with care and respect, and connect that work to brands and campaigns that are impactful and meaningful.

Thank you guys for this opportunity and I appreciate every single effort you guys made to make this a reality for me. I'm inspired and motivated to perfect my passion for photography. The payment I received will help me get the gadgets and tools I need to better my craft and production quality.

Sopea S.

It was an incredibly easy and fun process to license my content with Catch&Release. I would do it again in a heartbeat if/when I get the chance!

Be a part of something bigger. People like you are licensing their photos and everyday.
