2nd or 3rd priority means that you are not the only client who booked me at the same time, for a different or even the same service.

This works best for clients who can wait until their request can be handled, and who want to pay less for it than the standard rate. You will get a discount if you are fine with being 2nd priority, and an even larger discount if you are 3rd priority.

The discounts you can get depend on the volume and service(s) requested, so please ask for your individual quote.

testimonials

I have worked with Steffen for a number of years, and I can highly recommend him for all of the services he has to offer. Steffen is an extremely efficient picture editor, who works with precision and accuracy at speed to produce a fast turnaround of work. He has a great eye for the best image and his ability to quickly correct and crop images so they are presented at their optimum to clients makes Steffen an asset when working both live events and clearing daily shoots quickly.

Tim Clayton, 8x World Press Award Winner

I worked with Steffen for 15 years when he was my senior picture editor at Corbis. I consider him to be a rarity in the present age of not only being an incisive editor, but also a very good art director. He has an outstanding ability to spot worthy images and place them in the market place for discerning clients. I consider this to be a tremendous asset for photographers and picture editors alike.

Leo Mason, Photographer

I have worked beside Steffen at Corbis in the News, Sports and Entertainment (NSE) division as a colleague and supervisor for over 10 years. He displayed top-level abilities as a photo editor and photographer liaison. He has excellent skills in all aspects of digital workflow ranging from selection and manipulation to metadata control. What sets him apart is his discipline and organization when working on complex multi-layer projects. Steffen brings to the workplace an outstanding work ethic, and he can be counted on to consistently lead photographers to produce better work. Steffen is a great asset to any photographer or agency that is in need of imagery of the highest quality delivered efficiently.

Seth Greenberg, Managing Editor

Steffen is one of the best picture editors I know. I am really grateful for his help during my work at the Cannes and Venice Film Festivals 2016. He took on all the editing, retouching, metadata work and submissions to all my clients from his home office, and was on demand around the clock. Without him I would not have succeeded.
