Professional Photography Studios Benefit from Extensis Portfolio Solution

The Studios of Renowned Photographers Steve McCurry, Mary Ellen Mark and Scott Markewitz Manage Their Images with Extensis Portfolio

Press Release

Extensis, a division of Celartem Inc., today announced highly
respected professional photographers that trust their image
collections to Extensis’ digital asset management solution Portfolio.
The list includes Steve McCurry, best known for his award-winning
color photography, Mary Ellen Mark, who was voted the most influential
woman photographer by American Photo Magazine, and Scott Markewitz,
who has been recognized as one of the world’s greatest adventure
photographers.

McCurry, Mark and Markewitz have teams of staffers responsible for
managing the hundreds of thousands of images they have amassed during
their careers. By importing digital versions of their work into
Portfolio, their image library can be key worded, sorted for “finals,”
and easily archived or distributed. Markewitz also appreciates that he
can view his images as easily on location as if he were in the studio
by remotely accessing his Portfolio catalog.

“I often get requests from clients for my images,” says
photographer Mary Ellen Mark. “Portfolio’s extensive archiving and
retrieval capabilities enable my staff to find the right image in a
timely and efficient manner and track its usage.”

Steve McCurry adds, “The work is hardly finished once the shutter
closes on an image. Portfolio ensures efficient management of my
images once they arrive back in the studio, from editing to
archiving.”

clients a complete web publishing solution and integration for CS3(R)
