Join the Network

By becoming a Content Contributor, your photos and videos will be among the first to be presented to brands as creative options for commercial ad campaigns. Best part is, you don't need to create anything new or specific.

Get Paid

You own the copyright to every single photo/video you take and upload to the internet. Catch&Release will negotiate on your behalf to ensure you're fairly compensated. To date, we've paid out $3M+ to Contributors across the globe.

Sit Back & Relax

Simply connect your social media accounts to our secure portal. If your content is selected for clearance (the step before licensing), we'll reach out to you directly to get your approval and share the terms and other details.

Contributor Spotlight: Cinthia & Hugo

“Our lives were changed with just seconds of our story.” Newlyweds Cinthia and husband Hugo never imagined that the first couple minutes of their first dance (caught on a smartphone camera) would end up in a Nivea ad and change their lives forever. A paradigm example that brands are willing to pay for authentic, real moments.

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

Very stoked we got a feature. My dad was over the moon, he is such a Honda Goldwing fanatic so he was happy to brag!

Lindie S.

Thank you guys for this opportunity and I appreciate every single effort you guys made to make this a reality for me. The money I received will help me purchase new equipment to better my craft.

I’ve been selling photography rights for years and this is probably the best deal I’ve landed yet, so thanks and thanks again!

We're so happy our daughter Aubrey was featured in such great work with a positive message. She went crazy when she saw herself in the end. Thanks again for the opportunity!

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 a huge project like this showcasing the new Galaxy note 8 to the family. Thank you again!

I'm so excited that my mother and I got to make our national commercial debut together! Thank you to Catch&Release for featuring my mother and I in the Kay Jewelers Mother's Day campaign.
