Tourism Kamloops Launches New Photo-Kamloops Partnership

New image database will help marketers showcase Kamloops through high quality photos

For Immediate Release

February 16, 2017, Kamloops, British Columbia – Tourism Kamloops has initiated an exciting new program, called Photo-Kamloops, which makes the work of local photographers available to anyone looking for high quality photos of the city and region.  Tourism Kamloops has connected with a number of local photographers, selected a collection of breathtaking images and negotiated great rates on their work. The images are inventoried in Barberstock and available for purchase through Tourism Kamloops.

Photo-Kamloops has launched with 13 local photographers and over 200 of their best photos.  Marketers can access pictures of local sports, events, landscapes, attractions and outdoor experiences all shot in the Kamloops area.

“We frequently receive requests for photos from all over the region”, says Monica Dickinson, Director of Industry Relations & Communications, Tourism Kamloops, “but lack of third-party image usage rights limited our sharing with partners, so we innovated to meet the market demand.”  Photo-Kamloops provides access to quality photography that can be used for annual reports, presentations, web sites, social media, marketing collateral and the like.

Photo-Kamloops allows Tourism Kamloops to highlight the importance of innovation in the tourism space. “Innovation is one of our key strategic platforms. By providing marketers with the tools to promote our city, we are helping to deliver our promise to showcase Kamloops in exciting and dynamic ways to our potential visitors,” explains Beverly DeSantis, Tourism Kamloops CEO.

“We were thrilled to work with the Tourism Kamloops team, as our first client globally, to launch a program like Photo-Kamloops on Barberstock. We welcome the collaboration and look forward to pushing the system to its highest abilities,” remarks Deanna Girardi, Barberstock’s Director of Operations.
