This is a very simple site which acts mainly as a reference and contact point but what it does is enable you to browse through a selection of images under the main headings. Please remember that these images are but a small selection of what is available in the STAVKA image library – Just ask....
When you’ve browsed the site and got some sense of the variety and quality of what’s on offer then get in touch. Let us have some idea of your broad requirements send us a list and that’s when the fun starts.
STAVKA will email you a series of Zip files with a range of sample images that cover your chosen area of need. This is all part of the service and does not place any obligation or cost in your way. We’re confident that we can match your wants so don’t charge for this research service. We will include images that match your criteria but some may be slightly ‘left field’.
We’d rather you had too much choice than limit your scope.
What happens next is entirely up to you. The jpeg samples are all supplied with a unique reference number so ordering is easy. Just quote the reference numbers of the photos and the high resolution type (e.g. Tiff or jpeg) you want and leave the rest to us.
Your selection of high resolution images (minimum 600 dpi, average 1200 dpi) will be sent on cd to you or your publisher on cd to use as you require. The cd will include an invoice and credit lines for all images.
STAVKA does not believe in complicating matters so there is only one fee to pay for publication. That fee covers all languages for as many editions as you may print to and include e-rights.
STAVKA operates on a seven day a week basis as we are very well aware that your schedule may not conform to normal office hours. All emails will be answered within 24 hours if not sooner all phone calls are responded to asap depending on time zone.
STAVKA takes copyright and intellectual property rights very seriously as they underpin all our dealings with individuals and media companies.
STAVKA images are all covered by letters or agreements of copyright from the provider either an institution or individual.
The vast majority of the Russian and Soviet images have been sourced from institutions in Russia whereas the German and Axis photos come mainly from private collections.
Naturally the relationships developed between STAVKA and its providers are vitally important and to ensure mutual trust and respect the credit lines provided by STAVKA must be strictly adhered to.
STAVKA guarantees its customers that all copyrights are in place.
