Daria and Nico Trinkhaus started their first company PhotoClaim in 2015, after discovering numerous copyright infringements on Nico’s photos and after testing and developing a basic version of the current service with a few photographer colleagues. Since then, the company managed to collect more than 8 million Euro for photographers, growing its revenue with an average annual growth rate of 47% prior to the COVID year 2020.
To date, PhotoClaim has no outside investors and is profitable since 2019. We have a worldwide client base and are strongly connected to the travel photography industry but also serve photographers from different industries. We monitor and protect their images online and help regain their money whenever copyright infringement was detected.
Being now well-structured also internally, with a young and ambitious team, PhotoClaim is ready to enter the next growth phase. We plan to diversify further into different photography industries, grow our international legal connections by partnering with existing law firms or even setting up our own in countries with favourable jurisdiction. With good strategy and execution, owing our success to the efficiency of our organizational processes, it should be possible to grow our Company even 7-10 times in the next 5 years.
We stay focused on maximum productivity, while maintaining an environment of trust, diversity, and inclusion within the team. Having gained the trust of photographers worldwide, we also see still many ways in which we can help them further.
We will continue to work hard to make sure our clients get the money they deserve.
