JumpStory - Visuals without limits
JumpStory is made with you in mind. We focus on relatable visuals that will help you tell your story and meet your goals.
We love visuals, but hate the cliché ones!
Our approach is very different from that of our competitors. Big businesses like
Adobe, Unsplash, Shutterstock etc. focus on the photographers. And have contributed to a world with millions of cliché-looking stock photos. On top of that, they’ve added complex licenses and pricing models.
All of this needs to change. That is why we created JumpStory. Where we focus on you! Because we don’t like clichés and stereotypes but love authentic images, simple business models, and great storytelling!
Everyone at JumpStory is either an entrepreneur or has a background in small
companies, so we understand your world. We’re always building stuff with the
goal of helping you reach your goals (faster).
How JumpStory is transforming the industry
JumpStory curates authentic images created by passionate amateurs. Images of real people in real-life situations.
We use machine learning (AI) to look for this kind of authenticity and to generate relatable images. So where some tech companies want to use AI to generate fake-looking images that feature unrealistic expectations, we’re going in the completely opposite direction. We want to contribute to a more authentic and real world. Not a fake one.
In the stock photo industry, amateurs are often viewed as less competent than professional photographers. The professionals complain that they don’t earn enough money, and that the amateurs and industry innovators are to be blamed for this. We couldn’t disagree more!
Amateur photographers are amazing at being the creative flies on the wall. They capture real life, as it happens, and they focus on the photo itself instead of thinking about staging, model releases, etc.
Professional stock photo photographers, on the other hand, tend to stage everything too much and overthink it. Instead of being the fly on the wall, they become the artsy dinosaurs in the room – resulting in all the cheesy-looking stock photos that you find everywhere on the internet today
We founded our company in Denmark back in 2018, and we still have our headquarters in Scandinavia. However, we’ve grown from here to having customers in more than 150 countries, and we get new and happy users every day.
At JumpStory, we use the tagline ‘Visuals without limits’, because we’re hoping to empower you as much as possible by giving you simple, easy,
and affordable access to impactful visuals.
- Gone are the cliche stock photos and AI fakes
- Gone are the complex licensing models
- Gone are the expensive prices.
Instead, we provide you with,
- Real and original visuals in the millions
- Relatable images generated by AI
- One license and fair prices.
