Offset by Shutterstock is a hand-picked collection of extraordinary, engaging imagery from top artists and storytellers around the world.

300,000 images; more than 800 top photographers and illustrators from around the world; 60-plus countries and counting: this is Offset’s image library. We’re celebrating our three-hundred-thousandth image, but what this numerical milestone doesn’t relate is the continuing power of these photographs and illustrations to transcend the two dimensional plane, bringing a distinct beauty and energy to any narrative.
