National Geographic has made getting photographs even easier for 8-year-olds working on class projects, grandparents decorating their living room and everyone in between by launching the National Geographic Photo Store.
The store, available through the magazine’s Web site, offers more than 25,000 photos ranging from very early editions of the nearly 120-year-old magazine to the most recent issue. “National Geographic magazine has been bringing the wild places and creatures of the world into people’s living rooms for nearly 120 years,” says Maura Mulvihill, vice president of the National Geographic Image Collection. “We’re thrilled to be able to give consumers the opportunity to select their favorite image, frame it and hang it on the wall. It brings the world that much closer.”
Each photo in the store, which is powered by Pictopia, the photo-commerce provider for The Associated Press, Gannett and the Washington Post, is separated by subject: animals, cities and places, nature, people and cultures, underwater, and weather and natural forces. The photos are available in art-quality reprints of 10, 14, 20 or 30 inches and range in price from $19.95 for an unframed 10-inch print to $275 for a 30-inch framed photograph.
